We must do what we can to put an end to Sexual Harassment Training!!

Got this email at work the other day:


Yes..because the Sexual Harassment training we received before worked oh so well.

Then I re-read the subject line and immediately sent an email to my friend and coworker, Kristin:

Human Resources is silly.


Tim said...

Funny enough, I remember when she did in fact say just that.

It was either that or "What did you put in my dri..."


HR training sessions make me giggle.

Kev D. said...

I'm jealous. I hope that they show you a video.

Madge said...

Sexual harassment is the only thing that gets me through the day sometimes, that and cussing like a logger.

Opto-Mom said...

Kev, if they show a video, Rodney will probably be in it.

I was forced to provide Sexual Harassment training to a room full of Jamaican men who worked on the base when I lived overseas and it was HEE-larious. It was over 15 years ago and I still remember their confusion as to WHY "eef I tink a woman 'as a bute-tee-ful body, I cannot say eet?"

Enjoy. The prevention of any type of training is usually warranted.

Is there any way you can pull a "I am made uncomfortable in sexual harassment training, and therefore I feel sexually harassed by being made to attend"?

Knight said...

Oh how I miss the days of working with men. I'm doing all the sexual harassing in my office and the ladies are getting confused.

I know it may be hard to ride my thought-train here, but this reminds me of the first Harry Potter movie when they introduce Prof. Quirrel (or however it was spelled. They said "He'll be your defense against the dark arts teacher."

I thought, "They have a dark arts teacher? ... and he sounds dangerous, if they need a guy there to defend the students against him..."

Obviously not as funny as your post, since it didn't include the word "sexual".

...Maybe what you guys need is "Defense against sexual harassment teachers"

I just had to do this since I work in a county courthouse. Mercifully it was an online deal, so I took it at my desk and then printed out my suitable-for-framing certificate. It was hard not to mentally quote The Office while I was watching it.

I just feel lucky my co-workers have a sense of humor and there isn't anyone who either 1) harasses or 2) feels harassed unnecessarily. My job is pretty hard going without a sick and twisted sense of humor.

In that vein...
I guess you also have the flags on your lawn or stickers on your door from the local children's sports teams? You know, to show you're an atheletic supporter?

I think it is greatly overexaggerated (TWSS)

Most all employee work place training seems to be an attempt to set a precedent so that they can then fire people for not complying

Sorry I am debbie downer SNL

that is all

Sexual harassment is the best form of foreplay. Every day I go to work I hope that I will be the lucky one and get groped in one way or another. Sexually explicit dialogue is also appreciated.


SarcasmInAction said...

I love misplaced modifiers such as that!

laughingmom said...

Would the class even be necessary if you didn't work there?

meleah rebeccah said...

why does your office always sound like so much fun?

So. Cal. Gal said...

That's why quotes were invented: "Preventing Sexual Harassment" Training - Mandatory

Apparently the sender never got the message.

Christina_the_wench said...

So sexual harassment is bad? I always considered it a perk.

The upside to not working in corporate America is that I don't have to deal with that shit. But husband does, and these seminars usually wanna make him stick a flaming hot poker through his retina.

My thought is that anyone who REALLY needs this kind of training, who, like, doesn't know better already, is probably too fucked up to even understand this shit and won't benefit from it.

What the training should be is this: Do it and we'll kill you. (or fire you, or waterboard you). Like dealing with a kid -- lay out the consequences and be done with it.

Fear can be a very effective tool, especially if you're already a tool.
