Morons, pretty women, production, sex and sexual harassment

I worked in a plastic bottle factory a while back. I only worked there about three months because my OSHA training clashed with their obvious safety problems. That isn't what the hub is about though.

I watched people in the factory and how they related to each other. I was partnered with a boss to learn the ropes. He was a Mr. Stud type. Every pretty woman in the plant, obviously wanted to sleep with him. He pointed out a few of the ladies that he had supposedly "had."

There were two hottie sisters that worked on the front lines (of course). They really knew how to play the moronic bosses. They knew how to sway their butts and look over their shoulders and smile. The bosses seemed to always navigate their business past the sisters.

I noticed how most of the cutie pie women were up front on the lines, closer to the (men) bosses' offices. Midway on the lines were the lesser attractive ladies. The end of the line was reserved for smoking, lung chunk hacking grannies.

I really wish that the bosses wives could see a video of how they act around the cutesy women. There would be lots of ear grabbing and cheek smacking I tell ya! If these guys gave their wives half as much attention...they would come into work with a grin and grin all day!

The bosses would blame bad production on their usual lame excuses. The real problem with production is because the bosses minds are on curvy asses, cleavage, pouty lips and thoughts like "I know she wants me!"

The pretty women really know how to play these morons. It is hilarious to see a boss walk up to a pretty female worker, put his foot up on a chair while grabbing his crotch. He is being so cool and smiles a little while she plays with her long flowing hair.

The conversation is over and he walks away while glancing back at her perfect ass. She turns back to her job while rolling her eyes and giving a "finger in the mouth" gag sign to a woman down the line.

He goes back in his office, kicks his feet up on his desk and daydreams about her ravaging his body because he is just the studliest man in the whole wide world!

I just go back to whatever I was doing and say to myself "Moron....if I was a woman....I would kick him in his little balls and send a note to his wife explaining why he is walking funny!

Then we just might make damn production!

Hysterical pic there at the end. Perfect I'd say. Great find. And yes, you're right. Nothing's ever really going to change now, is it. Sigh. The stupid thing is, not many people actually notice any of your points.

Hooray for Tom for calling it like it is. Of course this little game takes two, and the curvy assed women are not innocent. But hey, you can't completely take sex out of the workplace. I just hope none of those moron bosses actually abused their boss status with their employees. That would f up more than production, I'd say. Anyway, great tale. MM

Men are just soooo predicatble. Definitely boss men. Pretty girls get it easy, and us dogs have to be so much smarter and work so much harder. Sigh...

Kudos to you Tom! A lot more work would get done if people weren't so shallow and persoanally I think the women are more to blame. They know exactly what they are doing and what strings to pull, but then again men shouldn't be so foolish about it.

Hee! The memories you brought up - having worked production for a few years for a company known for very large trucks and mining equipment, I can tell you - that ain't nothin! Not only are the bosses clueless when it comes to that - most men on the line are as well.  They try to be "helpful" - that's too heavy for you, you'll get dirty, you'll break a nail, you just let me take care of that for you, and on and on and on.  Smart women let them do it! It all pays the same.

The real hilarity usually ensues when you get a new boss or co-worker that has learned to look past the curves.  When those same women are expected to actually work- Oh Dear!!! The waterworks, the temper tantrums and yes - the accusations of harassment.

It's high school antics on an adult level. You've done a great job describing it!

THis hub is ingenious and unfortuanately oh so true. Some attitudes will never change, and I can paint the scene in my mind exactly as you describe. It's time that woman do take a stand, and refuse to be oggled in this manner, and demeaned in the work place and everywhere else because of our physical attributes. Unfortunatel, far too many women like to be thought of this way, and we must teach our daughters, (mine are11 and 21) that our brains are what we want noticed and nothing else, especially in the workforce or the classroom.

Love the honesty and the portrayal of most work places maybe not to that extreme but noticable for certain.

O how true it is...although there are the ones who enjoy it. The women who beg for the attention. Both are on the same level really... :)

Thank you all so much for stopping by. This is a subject that I thought a lot of folks could relate to. Looks like we have many hubbers who have witnessed this in one way or another. It is funny...but it is sad too....the men and women should both know better. Thanks again friends! :)

That's funny. Too bad the owner doesn't know, I'm sure he'd go ballistic. Being an evil capitalist, he'd want to maximize profit and I'm sure he'd put a stop to that pretty quick. On the other hand, if he's a guy, he might be in on it and in that case the company deserves to die and those moron managers need to be in the unemployment line.

ledefensetech...thanks....the company probably will die....they constanly put incompetent (ass kissing) people in charge. Hey...that sounds like our government. :)

oh God am I only woman here who should BE the girl in the pitcure? Yes, i am afraid I am guilty of using my womanly wyles to get what I want at work and flirt mercilessly and dress just naughty enough to get the desired attention. I was young and knew it would get me what I wanted...and did it ever. Needless to say, in retrospect it makes me ill to think about it. Thank you for this HUB Tom...I need to be reminded because although I no longer do it in the workplace there are still other times I tend to "use it"...

Many years ago I was a member of a committee appointed to write my employer's sexual harassment policy. The committee was composed, as I recall, four women and me. One of the women was from the legal department, one from the equal employment department, and two were from the personnel department. I represented the labor relations department. I mostly listened and made an occasional comment.

The discussions were quite interesting. One of the women commented that the problems were not only with men harassing the women, but also with women using their charms, so to speak, to advance their careers. About that time the corporate headquarters were rife with rumors about a particular woman and a high officer of the company. One comment referred to a friend of mine as Mr. "elevator eyes." A couple of the women said he was known to stare at women's breasts on the elevators. One of the women even claimed he would sometimes spin around to face the rear of the elevator to stare at women standing behind him. When I told him that he'd been outed in the sexual harassment committee deliberations he denied the part about spinning around to face the rear of the elevator. Anyway, the discussions were a revelation to me on women's attitudes and sensibilities on the subject.

The thorniest topic involved dating employees employees who worked in the same office, or even under the supervision of the other half of the couple or if not in the same office if one member of the couple was in a position to influence the career or compensation of the person he or she was dating. My attitude was colored by my personal experience with this situation when several years previously I had dated and married someone who worked down the hall on the same floor as I. When, after dating for several months, we announced that we were engaged and had set the date for our wedding, nearly everyone in my office and her office reacted with great surprise, because we had been quite discreet about our relationship, not eating lunch together or walking around holding hands or doing anything to blow our cover. My own experience made me skeptical about the company's ability to enforce a no dating rule or one which required the transfer of one or the other people who were dating. Also, the fact that the president of the company not long before had married his secretary a year or so following the death of his wife presented an example which conflicted with most of the various proposed policies. Being on this committee was one of my more interesting assignments.

Thanks Ralph...that was interesting....I think it takes wise management to make judgments on sexual harassment problems and policies. It think we always have to look at the human element of any situation concerning sex and work. Dating should be discrete. Sound like you could do a good hub on it through your experience. Thanks again! :)
