I work in an office with only men and one woman. Guess who I am. They often disappoint me and part of me hopes dearly my next place of business will be less sexist (although it's all a joke, right?). Sometimes they surprise me. Today is a day of wins and losses, let me share them with you.
Win : After yesterdays debacle about the whole picture leak and every guy agreeing that it was NBD and if the celebs didn't want pics stolen than they shouldn't have made them. I ranted at them that they should be ashamed of themselves and this was Private stuff, even if they are celebs they are PEOPLE first. They admitted to being a bit disassociated but it was stil NBD. Today 2 coworkers came back on that and were like "Yeah, you were right. I saw some footage and that shit was personal shit. That's not cool. Not okay."
Loss : An intern started today that I actually know from school (he's 1 year below me, we've interacted a bunch) and interned here before. Yesterday the guys joked about him being a PUA, I assumed this was since he was kind of a nerd but does consider himself a bit of a ladies man. When it came up he seriously and proudly said "No really. I am a pick up artist." Coworkers who didn't know him doubled over laughing at the absurdity of it.
Win : When said intern said some overly sexist quotes from some tv-show one of my co-workers looked in my direction very carefully in a 'uhoh, that is not cool to say' way and said "Wow, she's so happy she's leaving here now!" Yes coworker, this kind of stuff does make me happy I'm leaving.
GT HOLD ME BACK
I so want to dig into this guy and call him out for be a PUA and the fact that that is disgusting. How will I manage to hold back during lunch, I don't know how! On the other hand, this month could give me funny post material.
ETA Loss : We are responsible for the posting on the corporate account in teams, each day of the week a different team. He joked about posting dating tips. I sighed deeply and closed my eyes.
