So here lately I have been getting hit on a lot at work. I would say I have gotten hit on more in the last three weeks than I have in my entire life. While it is flattering, it really makes me think, do these guys have really low standards or what?
Seriously! Let me tell you about my typical appearance. 95% of the time when I go to work I have absolutely no makeup on. Not any foundation or even anything as simple as chapstick. Nothing. My hair is brushed but not really styled at all. And while I wear nice clothes they are very practical since my job can entail cooking, heavy lifting, and excessive sweating at any point of the day. And ususally at some point I get some kind of stain on them. Plus, I wear fuggly slip resistant man shoes and there is nothing sexy about that.
So obviously, I am not the picture of beauty on a typical work day. And while I have a fucking fabulous personality it definately isn't apparent until you get to know me, right?
So why in the world do I have all these delivery guys hitting on me??? Low standards? Perhaps. Sales techniques? Doubtful, since most of them don't work on commission. Pure horniness? Probably.
But how do I go on? The behavior of these men is really starting to cut into my work day. For instance, if this one delivery guy keeps stopping between loads to tell me about his life I may flip. Not only is he interuppting me, but he is also taking 5 times to long to make a simple delievery.
The riducule of my fellow employees is also starting to take its toll. In a business meeting (side note: I was the only woman) some fellow managers were talking about a linen company we use and what was availiable. Someone commented, "I don't like company X". I replied, "I don't either" Then Boss #1 jokingly said, "Teresa doesn't like company X because of our delivery guy." Without even thinking I said, "Um, yeah, well if that guy looks at my boobs one more time I am going to have to hit him."
So, as you can see this is getting so bad I may have to resort to violence and I haven't had a real big throwdown in awhile. Although I think I could take most of the guys, I used to play hockey.
Any advice on how to go back to a normal work day without getting violent is appreciated.
