Sexual Harassment isn't funny.

Just listened to a guy give a 30 minute Sexual Harassment lecture/review/compliance thingy. You know what makes those talks even more awesome? When they are held entirely in a language I don't speak.

It was put on by two people from the staffing agency we employee, for their employees, but i still needed to be there mostly just for show. We do our own in a few months time. The guy not speaking came up to me to give me the overview of what was being said. However he started with...

"Now, we're not here to show them how to harass..." and started laughing.

Really, fucker? You're not? That's so weird. Thanks for straightening that out for me. I was confused. Oh, its a joke? You're joking. That's so funny. I hadn't heard someone say that before, at EVERY SINGLE SEXUAL HARASSMENT TRAINING I'VE EVERY BEEN TO IN MY LIFE! THANK YOU FOR THAT, JOHNNY CARSON! I DIDN'T REALIZE YOU WERE STILL ALIVE AND HAD TAKEN YOUR 1957 STAND UP ACT ON THE ROAD! YOU GOT ANY "I LIKE IKE" JOKES YOU WANT TO THROW INTO THE MIX? HMMM?

Good times.
