"you know how when you work in a cubicle ... do you touch your co-workers..."


          

ok the cube.

you know in cubes there sometimes traffic in your peripheral?

it kinda gives you the urge to look as every person passes, right? maybe, right.

so there's a black man, (a well dressed temp, even) that sits in one of those cubes, and the cube just so happens to sit outside of a little white woman's office. in plain sight.

yesterday the black man comes by my office kinda sorta shaken.

he'd explained that the white woman, who often has loud friends that stand and chat outside of her office, approached him that morning.

he went on to say that she greeted him with an arm around his shoulder (he's seated at his desk) and says 'hey Curt, I notice you always look when someone passes ...'
he responds in his best white voice, 'oh, I'm sorry - I didn't mean to make anyone uncomfortable. you know, I just have a habit of bla bla bla. ill be sure to make sure I don't do that; or something like that'

she says back to him, 'good, I wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong impression or anything ...'

...

it took me a while to take the whole situation in, but at the end of that process i couldn't stand that woman's guts.

and I'm still not sure what the 'wrong impression is.'

i will also admit that I think dude really is one of the bug-eyed kinda guys. not grossly or nothing but you know how buggy-er eyes are a feature?

some shit like this: https://ioneblackamericaweb.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/featuredfoto1946-gregory-hines-bornthisdaybhm.jpg

and he is kind of a lookin-ass nigga. but not in a sexual way. more of a, I'm a temp and I'm scared for my job-life, type of way.

is this grounds for the big talk about sexual harassment?

did the touch send mixed messages?

do you touch your co workers?

age, you'd be a fool not to.
Muhphuckas shootin and stabbin' folks at work and what not. I'm at work to protect one thing---and thats me.

If you don't want me to be mindful of who is walking passed me or up on me--then go another phuckin' way.

Ain't no one trying to be sexual, what I am is being cognizant of my surroundings. I've been at my desk so long that I can tell who is approaching based on the sound of their walk---if it's a sound i don't recongnize, I'll stop what I'm doing, turn around and watch them pass. You're not walkin' pass me or up on me and I got my back turned to the computer screen. It only takes a muhphucka to have one bad day, one bad meeting to take their frustration out on everyone...

I' m trying not to be included in that everyone.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*
