Problems at your workplace? Wait til you read these

Source, Lowering the Bar: Things Not to Say to Employees #1-5

Here’s the first, followed by the last. Everyone who has problems at work–and who doesn’t?–will want to check these out, if only because they will (probably, I hope) make you feel a lot better about your work problems:

Over dinner, CEO [redacted] directed an unwelcomed “joke” to Ms. [redacted]: “Would you rather have your female genitalia on your hand so everyone could see it, or would you rather your husband have his male genitalia on his hand so everyone could see it?”

That’s one of the as yet unproven allegations in this complaint (via Courthouse News Service), which charges the company with fostering a “hostile work environment.”

Finally, how many times must I remind people not to do this:

On another occasion, Mr. [redacted] told Ms. [redacted] not to dream of [redacted]’s Chief Financial Officer wearing a singlet wrestling his prom date while naked midgets are cheering for him on the sidelines using Siamese furry cats as pom poms! [sic]

Kevin Underhill, the maestro of Lowering the Bar, says he may make a series out of these eruptions. Rah! Rah! Rah! (That’s me, cheering him on. Oh, but not using Siamese furry cats as pom poms. For one thing, Siamese cats aren’t really that furry, and for another, I’m allergic.)
