Is It Ever OK to Compliment Appearance on the Job?

April 26, 2013

NEW YORK — When Lisa Parker was new to corporate coaching, a senior-level colleague she respected brought her in as his No. 2 for a series of training seminar....

Weird PCBS breeds apathy.

She thinks all my jokes are corny

Convict movies make her horny

She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs

Swears like a sailor when she shaves her legs

She takes a lickin', and keeps on tickin'

I'm her baby and she's my honey

I'm never gonna let her go.

Mikeyd, that was my initial thought as well. This stu[pid story has no place in this paper. It, along with poll question, are just attempts by Myer to stir up some controversy.

Admittedly, I got in sooooo much trouble once, when I told my boss that the crease in his pants sent a thrill up my leg.

It isn't that hard to distinguish a compliment from a lecherous remark, or harassment from pleasant conversation, or an appropriate venue from one that's not. Good grief, of course it's okay, or at least it used to be. In Barry's case, he's been hanging out with gaffin' Joe too much.

I do agree that she will carry this, and it was very inappropriate. Appreciate media's ability to get us information, sick of hearing topics that are never ending when we have real problems to address. She will need to work twice as hard to prove abilities and be taken seriously. But beautiful women often do anyway-even without the comment. Anybody hear about Hillary's suits and her rear end growing, how was Palin received. No comment.

Anymore, the media and the public will jump on the band wagon and analyze any situation to death. If he announced a male as "the most knowledgable", what would be said. He pointed out the obvious. There is no sexual harrassment. While may not be the most tasteful-ALL people are human, at least in therory, and who has not made a comment that they felt comfortable with and was not well received. Personally I find physical comments unnecessary and at times offensive. I had a professor that when telling a story, was compelled to describe the woman-the most beautiful redhead, slender, big beautiful eyes....or, she was about 300 pounds, no teeth, and matted hair. This was graduate school. In a class of 30 mixed gender, only one other student and myself found his pattern offensive. The physical description had nothing to do with the we though. After working awhile, the only possible purpose was related to the confidence of those described in relation to the situation t

The NOW people still think he is all about them, and gays think he is all about them (though he has never taken a single step of any substance to help their causes). And yet there he is being just as big a pig as the people they love to hate. Obama only exists for the moment, will do anything he thinks will woo people in a that room at that time. Yeah, her whole professional career was crushed by his condescending remarks. She will never be anymore than what he just said about her, not a competent official just a babe. Hey Lord Obie said she was hot. And all of the people who said they hate that stuff have to find ways to ignore his conduct or justify it, or nervously laugh it off. Cuz he is the cult leader and if you be the robot you have to laugh at his jokes, even if they are sexist. She probably WAS appointed for her looks. Someone did a poll and found that FOX News has the hottest girls, so Obie was reacting to that and appointed a babe.

No, it is childish and inappropriate, but with this President it was just a continuation of his pattern of dividing Americans into contesting categories; now it's the beautiful verses the less than beautiful. Barack is just a gutter snipe.

President Obama showed poor judgment in announcing Attorney General Kamala Harris to be "by far, the best looking attorney general in the country." Because from now on every time he meets with another Attorney General you know they’re going to be so self-conscious that their appearance just isn’t up to Barry’s discriminating taste in women.

One thing’s for sure. If I’m ever up on charges in front of an Attorney General I’m sure going to compliment her on her physical beauty. “Kamala Harris has got nothing on you, sweetie.” Who says Barry isn’t setting new standards for women?

Well Opie could drop his pants and crap on stage and his sycophants would cheer and beg for a taste.

The rest of us better be PC or get pushished!
