Not So Appropriate

Kind of like inappropriate.
I'm no prude, but listening to someone from my company (who will remain nameless, but she is pretty high up on the food chain) talk about her teenage daughter and referencing ::ahem:: blow jobs and crack are not my idea of a good time.  Sure, you can joke with girlfriends about that kind of stuff.  But sitting around a conference table, while finishing lunch with other coworkers, makes for an uncomfortable situation.

Cue the awkward laugh.

Of course there were more stories to follow.  Each one quite unpleasant with it's sexual innuendos.  And she chortles like a... well, something that chortles.  Not that I was offended because I wasn't.  Most people enjoy a good story about a preacher and nuts (actual cocktail nuts, but it came with a sausage), right?

Sorry Mr. Peanut. 

I mean, I guess it is a good thing that we have all worked together for so long that she feels comfortable, but I don't really care for things like that in what should be a professional setting.  Skeevy. 

When I go to my friend Daina's bachelorette party in a few months I say, "Bring on the penis straws and condom veils!"  Well, probably not, but if anyone wants to I will not be offended or anything.

And because I've mentioned it every other day, I'm still waiting.  I know I said this week, but it is looking like two or three more weeks.  So let's just drop the subject, 'mkay?  Thxbai.  XOXO


  1. I feel your pain. Totally don't like that. Even though you are comfortable with people it is still a workplace.

  2. Gross, for realz. I don't want to hear/talk about blowjobs with anyone, to be quite honest.. I think blowjobs are the "gateway drug" and give the impression that you are cool with discussing just about anything aloud...ewwww, and at work??!

    I am not offended by anything, and I don't consider myself a prude, but I am not down with decorative penises... It's pretty tacky. I realize my mouth (i.e., the stuff that comes out if it) may suggest otherwise, but I like to consider myself a little classy. Plus flashing/glow in the dark penises will attract the wrong kind of attention...

    My fingers and toes are numb from being crossed for so long. You better hear something concrete very soon or I am going to have to have an amputation...

  3. Blech, that is just wrong. just WRONG.
