I thought this re-run might be interesting in lieu of all the sexual harassment that is in the news these days. I included some of the comments from ladies on the original post as I found them especially interesting.
Ralph seemed like a nice guy to me. He was clean cut, reasonably good looking; he liked sports, was polite and had a good sense of humor.
“He’s just weird, I can’t tell you why.” Is the response I would get when I inquired why women would not work with Ralph.
“I can’t tell you, you’d have to be a woman” was another common response.
I always paired Ralph off with another man, and there was never an incident. Ralph was not the best worker, but he was adequate, and he came to work on time. He was laid off one year when the company was not making enough money to make the stockholders happy.
Several years after Ralph left the company, I was riding a crowded NYC subway. I was seated and nodding off when a woman woke me with a loud rant:
“You touch my ass one more time and I’m going to cut off your Mother-Fu*king dick!” (You don’t want to mess with NYC women.)
“Wha what? I didn’t do nothing!”
“Listen dickwad, every time the train shifts you rub against my ass. One more time and I will knee you so hard you’ll be talking through your balls!”
“I didn’t do nothing!”
I felt a little sorry for this dude. It is sometimes difficult to avoid bumping into people on a crowded subway. Then I looked up at the culprit. It was Ralph! Apparently it was not just difficult for Ralph to avoid contact it was also very hard!
I don’t know what the ladies saw, they never could really tell me, but from that point on I totally believed in women’s PERVDAR!
