I WAS SEXUALLY HARASSED AT WORK
TRIGGER WARNING 📢📢📢
- •So this was YEARS and years ago (I think I was 18?) when I worked at a grocery store.The deli department!
- •It was one of my first jobs and it was okay at first. But there was this older guy that was the deli manager and he was very "flirty"-You know the type. Doesn't call you by your first name- it's always honey, sweetie etc etc just inappropriate in his actions and language.
- •And I let all that slide..I want to make excuses for myself; I was young. I was timid. But why should I make excuses?!? Why do I feel guilty that HE took things too far?
- •One day he was out of fucking control.
- •He told me he wanted to see me in lingerie.
- •He touched my butt as he walked by.
- •He whispered in my ear..Something about me being sexy.
- •He grabbed my hips as he slithered and squeezed by me and a coworker.
- •He may have said other things but I forget.
- •When I got home I immediately took a shower.I felt gross.
- •I quit the very next day.Bless the supervisors heart. She knew it was because of him. She tried to get me to tell her why I was quitting and for some reason I couldn't say why. I felt like if I did I was snitching or something.
- •He was fired soon after for.. You guessed it.. SEXUAL HARASSMENT!And I'm glad someone had the strength to stand up.
- •Also thank god for his sake because when I finally told my mom she marched in there to kill his ass.
- •Oh, and to top it off his name was FRENCHIE!
- •This wasn't to be the last time I was spoken to inappropriately or propositioned at work btwBut every time it happened since then I shut it the fuck down immediately because of that experience.
- •I just wanted to share.
