How would you handle this situation?

I work in a chicken plant and out of the corner of my eye today I saw a guy holding a leg quarter in the general vicinity of his privates and shaking it (that time it was not directed at me) I laughed, rolled my eyes and shook my head. A second guy had another guy get my attention and repeated the obscenity.(that time it was directed at me) Again I laughed shook my head and rolled my eyes. I know that all women are not like me and would probably have gotten them for sexual harassment.

  • I would have done exactly what you did. I don't see it as a problem until they actually try to physically come at you.

  • I would have laughed too, certain jobs that are the same day in day out have high sexual tension, these guys are just trying to get through their boring ass day!

  • Depends on how well and how much I liked the guy. If I thought he was an asshole and had had problems with him before I would have reported it. But work with guys that say and do things all the time that could be considered sexual harrassment but it doesn't bother me.

  • I would have laughed. I was working 3rd shift at a retailer and we had cable television in our break room. The guys were used to being on their own on the shift and they started to watch Real Sex on HBO. Well, one of the older guys noticed me and looked at me in shock...with my mouth full of nachos (as Taco Bell was the only restaurant opened that late) I said, "What...I already saw this one..." They all cracked up laughing.
