Nobody likes a racist…except maybe another racist. No one likes to see someone denigrated because of their race, religion, nationality, or gender. In a country where “all men are created equal”, it just isn’t right. But under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, everyone has a right to an opinion, and the right to voice that opinion.
In the last five years, however, this younger generation is getting a taste of what made gray haired Boston fans, well, grow so prematurely gray. Anyone born before 1971 knows the heartbreak that accompanied with root, root, rooting for the home team.
The key here is tact. Flirting can – believe or not – constitute sexual harassment, so you have to deal with the situation carefully. So don’t embarrass the flirt in front of their colleagues. Instead, take them aside and explain to them behind closed doors that their behaviour is disruptive, and that it’s affecting employee morale. Give the person specific examples that show that their flirting is out of line. Tell them that Person X doesn’t like it when you pat them on the shoulder, hug them, etc. By giving concrete examples, you’ll better show the flirt that they’re doing something that is clearly a no-no.
I know a guy who carried on with his bosslady for a number of years. And after the affair broke off, Old Boy was fired, and when I met him, he was living in a rented storage unit. A very sad story. He admits it was not the wisest move of his personal life. Eventually, he got up on his feet again and got his own place, but it was very heartbreaking that he had to learn that lesson at all.
In some cases this is not enough. You may have to resort to filing a complaint which can be done directly from the reverse phone look up website once you have downloaded your report. Another piece of advice when dealing with sexual harassment training over the phone is to log every call. Take note of the time and date of the call and also details of what was said.
During P.E. I had helped one hold a baseball bat correctly. This had made her feel “uncomfortable”. But she had never told me this or indicated her discomfort. Neither had I heard a complaint from her parents.
If you are traveling alone, it is best to travel light. For one thing you will be more mobile because you aren’t loaded down with luggage. If it’s not too small for your belongings, a wheeled, carry-on bag, or a backpack may be you best bet. It is important to try and have one hand free at all times. Having two hands free is even better. You should wear a shoulder bag that has a strong, wide strap that will fit over your head. Wearing the shoulder bag this way may help prevent someone from grabbing the bag and running away with it. The bag should also have secure, zippered pockets.
