A reminder that just because I work in a restaurant, that does not give you the right to grab me when you need something.
ATTENTION ALL CUSTOMERS: Just because you’re in a rush doesn’t mean you have to be an asshole.
Hey everyone! Please remember to walk your coworkers to their cars after closing. There are a lot of creepers out there. Had to walk a host to her car tonight because a guest was being a total creep to her just before closing. Stay safe, everybody.
Just because you’re a little busy doesn’t mean you have to be an asshole to your coworkers
Do you ever get so close to punching your ignorant coworker in the face you get ready to swing every time they walk by?
…and then made the butt of sexual jokes when they don’t wear them.
Okay, let me explain.
A few days ago I got a really bad sunburn on my back, and it hurts to wear anything remotely tight fitting, especially scratchy shirts. I went in to work holding my chest because it hurt too much to wear a bra, and I had to go without. A coworker noticed the way I had my arms crossed and asked what was wrong, so I told him that it hurt my sunburn too much to wear a bra. Rather than expressing any kind of sympathy, my coworker instead made a move as if to move my arms away from my chest and when I slapped his hands down he literally said, “Aw, come on ____! Let me cop a feel!” and then repeatedly stated how “hot” it was that I wasn’t wearing a bra.
What’s sad is that I wasn’t really bothered by this until I told my friend about it, and she became upset about the fact that this coworker, who I considered a friend, was being so blatantly aggressive. Now I’m wondering if working in the restaurant business has made me less sensitive to people treating their coworkers this way, or if I’m just overreacting when I say I now realize that he was way over the line, acted inappropriately, and would have deserved a good smack to the face.
What, was he expecting me to put on a show? Wet t-shirt contest for one? What the actual fuck, man. It’s not like I enjoy being sunburnt and uncomfortable. You notice how guys will lightly joke about when they’re cutting glass, but as soon as a girl’s cutting glass, she’s either “gross” or everyone can hardly keep their hands off their dicks? Seriously what the fuck. I shouldn’t have had to keep my chest so hidden because it was really awful for my posture, but thanks to idiotic assholes who enjoy sexual objectification, I had to. I don’t think that’s quite fair, and it’s starting to piss me off.
