Flirtation in the Workplace




















If your boss flirts with you, it does not necessarily mean that he is a rascal, obsessed with sex or likes intimidating his subordinates. Let’s be fair: the reasons can be different. Here are some of them that will help you to learn how to react to the harmless flirtations of your boss.

 

Maybe, he does it automatically

 

How to identify it

 

When you pass by him, he slaps you on the bottom without taking his eyes away from his work. When he hears your indignant scream, he lifts his eyes and looks at you with a silent reproach. Every Friday he asks the same question, “Betty, what about having a blast together this weekend?” though your name is Becky and everybody knows that you always spend weekends with your grandchildren.

 

What should you do?

 

Don’t give it a second thought.

Maybe, he thinks this kind of behavior is part of his job.

 

How to identify it

 

When you are alone, he flirts with you much less than in the presence of your colleagues of authorities.

 

What is to be done?

 

Tell him that the whole office knows that he sleeps with you. Swear that you personally overheard a secretary and a top manager discussing your private life. He will sigh with relief and will be thankful to you.

 

Maybe, he just can’t handle the fact that “Viagra” does not affect him any more

 

How to identify it

 

Every day his hair becomes darker, and sometime ago he showed up with a new set of teeth.

 

What is to be done?

 

Kiss him on the top of is head and say that he looks very energetic. He will be totally satisfied.

 

Maybe, he thinks he’s being paternal toward you

 

How to identify it?

 

He calls you “daughter”, gives you sweets, tries to make you sit on his lap and, when he sees some young man holding your hand, he demands an explanation.

 

What is to be done?

 

Call his daughter, explain the situation, and scold her for being inattentive to father. The whole family will be thankful to you.

 

Maybe, he has problems with coordination; that is why, whenever he tries to take a pen from your desk, he accidentally grabs you by the waist

 

How to identify it?

 

When he wants to take a pen from his assistant’s desk, he puts his hands on her waist. The smell of alcohol is always in his room, and his safe is always full of liquor.

 

What is to be done?

 

When he is “compos mentis,” tell him that yesterday he was upset for some reason and to raise his mood he tried to have a heart-to-heart talk with a tax inspector, but you talked him out of it. He will have profound respect for you and will consider you his savior.

 

Maybe, he thinks that you are lonely and lost.

 

How to identify it?

 

You have not been to the hairdresser's since the time when your boyfriend left you, and that was two months ago.

 

If you are asked what you are wearing today, you cannot answer unless you look at yourself in the mirror. You neglect your make up because, to your thinking, it doesn’t matter. You are sure that some excess pounds are better than a single ward in mental hospital.

 

What is to be done?

 

Have an intimate talk with a psychotherapist. If you are frank enough, a vacation in a health canter is guaranteed.

 

Maybe, he cannot think of any other way to make you work

 

How to identify it?

 

Just yesterday he shouted at you because your report was due, but today he softly mumbles that such a beautiful young woman as you can be a success in any area. At the same time, you hear something ingratiating in his voice and see him putting a huge briefcase on your table.

 

What is to be done?

 

You have to finish this silly report, which has been an eyesore to you for a month already. Then he will stop paying attention to you.
