The Friendly Manager and His Harem

He compliments his staff on their looks in a way that is unprofessional.  The manager and family man enjoys flirting.  He rubs the backs of attractive female workers in a seductive way.  He stares at certain parts of their anatomy while they walk by and sometimes bumps other male managers with a smile while commenting, "Wow...Well look at that...Nice..."  And some of you know the rest. 


The manager is considered "charming," "friendly," and "sweet."   But a disheartened someone or a group knows different.  These quiet mouths avoid him for good reason.  They are careful what they say and do around him.  Yet, the women aren't innocent, they are guilty for falling into his manipulative traps and they know it.  Some of the women had received great titles, salaries, and more because of the clever gentleman while others, who weren't so accommodating or attractive, got next to nothing.  Therefore, those scorned workers feel jilted.  Yet, the gorgeous gullible women and career-driven opportunists, who obtained treats for performing tricks, wear guilt heavily on their hearts and minds.  "I shouldn't of...Why would I do that?  I don't want to owe this sick S.O.B for the rest of my life!" but they did.  Whenever they need something he is the go-to guy, but if they have loose lips they will sink their own ships at least that is what the mean-spirited manager has told some in so many words for days, weeks and even years who got to see his dark side.

People don't always lose jobs, receive death threats, or commit career suicide for exposing others, rather for many, at least lately, victims are believed, protected, and are praised for sharing their stories.  It all depends on who the harasser is and how much support or lack thereof they have.  Offend the wrong people who can help you, and you just might get thrown under the bus if one is the prideful one expecting to be protected even when guilty.  Yet, get on board with the right people, and the harasser is brought down low.

You might have encountered someone whether the same sex or the opposite sex who you thought was simply "nice" at work.  However, in time you learned there was more to that manager/boss/supervisor/owner than meets the eye.  He (or she) may have behaved disturbingly, strange, controlling and didn't mind letting you know what he or she wanted from you or someone else.  Don't sweep things under the rug, do something about them!  As I type, there are plenty more stories unfolding about sexual harassment at the workplace with A-listers as well as others.  It looks like select individuals' "protection" no longer exists.

Eye-opening #MeToo stories about victims being ensnared in a trap of sex or else teach us a lesson or two about life and beckons us to ask the questions, "What are you willing to do or tolerate for fame, fortune, and power?  How far would you go to risk your family, work and friendships?  Do you have an out-of-control appetite for sex?  Is your personal interests worth suffering over and how might what you do impact those you love?"  When you sum it all up, it's just not worth it.  So one might want to be wise when it comes to dealing with workers keeping in mind to always remain professional while leaving so-called harmless flirting, desires for sex, and overly friendly behavior out of the office and away from one's bread and butter--career.
