Stay Classy San Diego-The Mayor’s Gotta Go! — Dave’s Diary
According to an on-line article from CBS News, The city of San Diego has sued Mayor Bob Filner to require that he pay any costs incurred from a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by his former communications director.
Irene McCormack Jackson sued the mayor and the city July 22, alleging the mayor asked her to work without panties, demanded kisses, told her he wanted to see her naked and dragged her in a headlock while whispering in her ear. Since then, six other women have offered detailed accounts of Filner’s alleged advances, including touching and forcible kisses.
Seven of nine City Council members have urged the city’s first Democratic leader in 20 years to resign.
As that drama plays out, we ask you what you would do, if someone was showering unwanted attention on you at work. Violence is not an option.
Here are some tips on how to stop that annoying guy in the office from hitting on you, according to employee-relations expert Mona Rexfield of Chicago:
Bring in a picture of your boyfriend
If you don’t have a boyfriend, borrow a photo of your toughest looking, no-necked relative, frame it and prop it up on your desk.
Badmouth a former lover
When you’re at the water cooler, talk openly about how your last guy was a major flop between the sheets. Unless your pursuer is dead certain he’s a stallion in bed himself, he’ll back off quick.
You can use reverse psychology to send a false-hearted playboy running for cover. When he asks you for a date, go ahead, then over dinner start chewing his ear off about “our relationship.”
Cool him down
The cold-water treatment is a tried-and-true method of putting a pesky womanizer in his place. Next time he makes a raunchy remark about, or suggests a sex act, walk calmly to his desk and pour a glass of ice-cold water in his lap.
