I like to think of this list as an organized rant.
A co-worker recently approached me with some very inappropriate comments that pissed me OFF!
Work is supposed to be a place that is comfortable and safe.
To keep everyone happy, companies usually set certain ethical guidelines for employees to follow.
One would think these guidelines are common sense, but apparently some people need a reminder.
No worries, people. I have absolutely no problem reminding you!
Ten phrases that you should never EVER say to a co-worker.
1. Are you shaved or unshaved?*
I figured that I'd start with a bang! And, yes, someone did actually ask me this last week...
2. Tell me something hot.*
Unless you're referring to the pea soup I made the other night, go away. Like, now.
3. Is your child retarded?
Did you seriously just ask this mama bear such an offensive question? I will kick you.
4. Are you getting enough protein?
I didn't think this was such a big deal until I realized what protein he was referring to. Bleh, gag, barf.
5. What color underwear are you wearing?
This went along with a perverted app. A naive, 19 year old Jax may have answered this question...
6. Did you get a boob job?
No, it's called my period. Oh, you don't like that answer? Then why did you ask?!
7. Are you pregnant?
You wouldn't believe how many times I get asked this RUDE question!!!
8. When you get married, do you plan on getting pregnant right away?
As my manager, I'm pretty sure that you legally can't ask me that question. Just sayin...
9. What do you do when you're alone?*
I am so NOT even entertaining this conversation right now, pervert!
10. What do you do in the shower?*
Do not EVER speak to me again unless it's strictly, 100% regarding work you nasty, disgusting man.
While I've been asked all of these terrible questions, the ones with the "*" were the icing on the cake.
I politely told this sad, pathetic person that if he ever speaks to me again, I'm going straight to HR.
If I had huevos, I'd go right now. Unfortunately, I blush even saying half of those things out loud.
What inappropriate phrases have you endured at work?
