    What kind of person does this?  If someone makes a sexual joke, not directed at you or about you, that you just happen to overhear, it is a complete overreaction to post a picture of them on twitter and complain about it!  This is childish and immature.  It reminds me of when I was young, and my siblings would tell my mom if I said fart or butt, just to get me in trouble.

      Her reaction says more about her than it does about women in general,  most of the women who work with me would have a witty retort or an excellent riposte to belittle a male in any situation.

        Well, if they had directed it towards her, I would understand being upset.  She was being nosy and listening in, so I have no sympathy.

    I recognize the personality-type. I pity her coworkers that have to work with her day in and day out.

    At times like this I feel like abandoning intellectualism and just telling people to grow up.

    That person has too much time on their hands.

    Bad move that cost her and a father of 3 children their jobs.  The tweet was poor taste, posting a pic was stupid.   

    A witty response would have sufficed if she felt she had to say anything at all..

    Things like these annoy me. The woman who made the tweet obviously has some deep-rooted issues of her own and she's expressing them by getting other people in trouble. It's not fair, it makes no sense, and for pity's sake she's a grown woman! She is perfectly capable of turning around and glaring at them, asking them to pipe down, or just finding another seat! We can't all live in fear of what someone might do to us when we're not behaving like church mice. No one's perfect and telling the occasional bawdy joke can be entertaining and stress relieving. I guess all I am saying is she needs to get those serious bunches out of her panties. Life does not have to be that serious! She must be real fun at social gatherings. Just wow.
