Correct.

This is my 3rd job. If any of the stuff I described had happened in my first job or second job, I would consider all the legal advice, but in my current environment, I think I could potentially cause more damage by talking to HR or a lawyer than keeping quiet and doing nothing.

Still, I appreciate all the advice and opinions. Thanks. :)
Hey, that was my legal advice. I told you in the third or fourth post from the top of this page not to mention any of this to anyone, including her.

I'll quote myself to beat the dead horse further:

So, do I still have to pay you?

Copying the font is easy.

Anyway... How's Mrs. Bruce doing? Seriously. Has she seen the specialist yet?

She's cool.

It's been a cold winter and she's been wearing heavy clothing, so I haven't seen the tattoo lately.

If I don't see the tattoo on groundhog day, I'll have six more weeks of good behavior. :D

And how DARE you desecrate De_Bunk's image!!! :x

If I was desecrating him, I would say something like:

The one and only Bruce...

The "Bruce" that pretends to be straight "Bruce"

I know I shouldn't reply to resurrected threads lest the behavior be encouraged, but Jesus, CH. What harpy tore out your heart and shat fire on it?
Cool Hand wrote:Bruce, Bruce, have you learned nothing in your 30+ years of dealing with women?

There is no such thing as a totally cool chick when it comes to flirting and sexual advances and rejection. No such thing. Chicks, even the coolest of the coolest, get all fucking weird and rejecty and creeped out by any overt actual response, no matter what it is, from a guy to their flirting, if indeed that's what it is, when they do not want a relationship with you. Here's a big fucking clue.

No matter how much you think you can read signals from a woman, you ARE WRONG. Women are evil creatures who send out all kinds of mixed signals, and just when you are absolutely convinced this totally hot chick who is totally cool, and smart too, is into you, and you respond with a witty comment and/or come on, BLAM! Both barrels of being totally creeped out and indignant and Oh MY GOD, how could you think I would ever in a million years want to be with you come blasting right in your...naughty regions and your face.

NO ONE understands how to read women's signals. NO ONE. Men who get lucky all the time with tons of women are getting rejected 95% of the time. They are playing a numbers game. They hit on 10,000 women in a month and get lucky with 500. Those are Wilt Chamberlain numbers, man, but Wilt's getting rejected 9,500 times a month. Also, if those were women working for the Lakers or the NBA back then, then Wilt was facing sexual harassment suits and charges every minute of every day. OK, that's if sexual harassment as a civil cause of action was recognized widely back then, and it was not. Also, Wilt had NBA groupies, as do 99% of NBA stars.

OK, so the hypothetical totally fails in your case, but quit kidding yourself that this chick totally wants you, or that even if she did for some reason, that you could get away with it. You do not respond to her itches or her alleged coolness at all, except it might be polite to say "Excuse me," if you need to walk near her without bumping into her.

CH

P.S. Do you know why women send mixed signals? It's for a variety of reasons, but maybe the most common one is that every woman, even if she's been #1 on FHM's and Maxim's Hottest Women of the Year for 10 years in a row, is insecure about her looks and thus her sexual attractiveness. Every woman. This means from time to time most women want to be reassured that they still got it, that they are sexually attractive to other men, not just their hubbies or whatnot. Therefore, they dress or act provocatively just to see if men around them respond. This does not mean they want those men to slobber on them or try to rip off their panties at Bergdorf's. It means nothing more than they want to get a response from other men, then kick them in the face when the common, ordinary, not in a million years men are dumb enough to think the women might mean something by it.

Don't be one of those men, Bruce.

It's been several months since the OP.

I've been mitigated in her eyes from flirty toy, to guy friend, to big brother. I'm pretty sure she respects me too much to want to bone me. Besides, she has a boyfriend that just moved in with her.

You know that you're in the big brother category when a girl tells you everything; everything you didn't want to know and didn't want to hear that is, stuff that pops fantasies like a dirty bubble. Stuff that make you cringe. Stuff that makes you realize that if you were to get involved with that girl, you would be in for a huge heap of trouble.

I like the girl. She's smart, sassy, hard working, good listener, and unusually responsible for a girl her age. I would be doing her a dis-service by poking her, even if she wanted it. I consider her a strong ally in the fight against corporate BS.

I still looky, but no touchy. :wink:

.......Wow.........

You really dug deep for this one. 12 years is a lifetime ago.

I had to read the whole thing cause I barely remember writing it.

The last I heard from the girl in the OP, she had 2 kids and was doing well.

That was 2 jobs ago. I don't miss that place, but I miss some of the people. Things did not end well for that company. I won't say the name, but they were largely responsible for the Oxycontin epidemic that still plagues this country. The company was sold and then closed due to bankruptcy shortly afterward. I had no idea what was going on at the time, but learned all about it from a Netflix special that came out a few years ago. I developed the test methods for the drug that was later named Narcan.

So much has happened in the last 12 years.

So......robinson.......have you marked your calendar to dig up this thread in another 12 years?
