  • Had to share this: not a joke!

    Since I just came back to LLT after a long absence, I had to share this story that just happened at my office yesterday. You are going to think I made this up or that it's a joke, but it actually happened.

    Our HR VP was standing by the front desk asking the receptionist something. A woman came in, went up to the receptionist and said she knows a guy who works for us, and gave his name. (He is a low-level manager.) She went on to tell the receptionist that this guy told her that if she gave him "oral favors" he would get her a job here.

    The receptionist was shocked, glanced over at the HR VP, then said to the woman "So you're here to make a complaint about him?"
    And the woman said "No, I'm here for my job."

    I swear on a STACK of Bibles that this is true! After hearing about it, I literally could not do my work for at least an hour because I could not stop laughing.

    Oh dear God.

    Glad to have you back, TS!
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Oh my goodness - it is funny though.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

        Welcome back TS!

        So, do tell. What happened to the, ummm, "lady"?
        I don't believe what I write, and neither should you. Information furnished to you is for debate purposes only, be sure to verify with your own research.
        Keep in mind that the information provided may not be worth any more than either a politician's promise or what you paid for it (nothing).
        I also may not have been either sane or sober when I wrote it down.
        Don't worry, be happy.

        http://www.rcfp.org/taping/index.html is a good resource!

          I can' t decide if she was that dumb or if she was a vindictive ex-girlfriend trying to get him into trouble. Either way, it was funny.
          I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!

            Truth is stranger than fiction. Humans never cease to amaze me.
            I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
