One of mine is one day where I introduced myself to a guy in the break room and I told him my job and he goes “a female mechanical engineer? What’s next?!?” then later asked me who I knew to get the job
a chef at the restaurant i worked at wouldn’t stop fully grabbing my & my coworker’s butts on shift and saying “oops”. even after we reported it nothing was happening so we sprayed his herb garden with 409 cleaner so all of his herbs died and he couldn’t figure out why
I have so many from construction, but here’s 1: happened to my (female) coworker on the site we’re working. Operator gets out of his equipment, drops his pants, and waves his dick around making a “suck it” hand motion as she is going by. A classique
An an athletic trainer I constantly get cornered by dads telling me about their groin injuries in the past. Coaches specifically walk past me to talk to my male coworkers or INTERNS. I get asked for “rub downs”.
worked in a hardware store for a hot minute & it was the worst
Once this dude came in & I asked if there was anything I could help w/ he said “thanks sweetheart but I’m gonna ask one of the smart guys”. I ended up having the answer to his question. He got pissed and stormed out
3 male foremen in a row wouldn’t let me demo concrete because I “could get hurt doing men’s work.” One finally let me try and when I paused and turned around LITERALLY the entire job had stopped work to watch and one guy was fucking filming
one summer i was interning for a major tech company, i was the only girl on the entire team. one of my coworkers incessantly messaged me and on my birthday, got me two $100 gift cards to red lobster (?????) then when he found out i had a boyfriend, he asked me to give them back
A PASTOR came into the coffee shop I work in saw me wearing leggings and started complaining to my male coworker that it forces him to have unpure thoughts, so my coworker asked if he wanted to file a report and he said yeah but little did he know Im the manager
We literally have a list of men who women cannot be in an office or elevator alone with because they will, without fail, corner you & touch you inappropriately. It’s called a “Noah’s Ark” list, because you have to go two-by-two into those offices.
Standing on a ledge about 4 feet up in a dress with my male boss(55) right behind me. As I’m trying to clearly get down without “showing” anything, he proceeds to wrap his arms under my butt, lift me down while twirling me around to his other side…WHILE BEING ALONE! I was 19.
I was a manager for a year at a local restaurant. One time a guy came in to fix our stove. When he was done he gave his paperwork to a guy we hired THAT DAY and asked him to sign it, then told me the stove was ready for me to cook on it again.
Wore baggy athletic shorts to paint outside in 95 degree heat while my male coworkers were inside and my boss told me I needed to wear pants because I was too distracting… also paid me $5 less an hour than the men and called me “girl” as if I didn’t have a name
I had a teenage patient with a broken shoulder (I know the pain bec I’ve had 4 and still managed to do my hair/makeup/drive/look fabulous in a sling for 8 weeks). Kid asked me rub lotion on his dick. Told him I’d get the male nurse to do that, he quickly changed his mind 🙃
