The Lounge Are you proud of the organization that pays your salary? Jul 12 2012

I'm very proud of them (because it's my pension check). But due to many years on the job, working rotating shifts in dangerous, sometimes sad, but sometimes uplifting situations.

The stress level of his job is way up there. I did 27 years before I pulled the pin and when I did it felt so good, I don't miss it at all. Does he work rotating shifts?

I was recently diagnosed (albeit not by a professional) with IBS - Iritable Bastard Syndrome... but that diagnosis was made by my ex, so I'm not sure if that counts.

The only water I drink is from a Life Mist machine I have in my home.  It is a water distiller and therefore the water is tasteless, pure, and free of any and all contaminates. It is also connected to my ice maker, and it is the only water I cook with and use to wash fruits and vegetables.

If anyone ever asks you who put the snowman's head on Ted Williams' frozen body at the cryonics center, it wasn't me.

I've spent most of my adult life in uniform, beginning with the Army, and then for many years afterward until my retirement.  Along the way I met and worked with many women in uniform, military, police, fire, emt's, etc. My thing was cleaned, pressed, spit shined, then I was impressed.  But as far as being physically attracted to a woman in uniform, well, I guess not any more than other women.

The Lounge Sexual Harassment? Mar 27 2012

If that person and you work in the same place, and more so if he is a supervisor, then you certainly have a valid SH complaint.  But if anyone, no matter who, says or does things that make you uncomfortable then tell them.  This is not your fault! You deserve to be treated with respect and dignity as much as anyone else.  And just for the record, he sounds like a sicko to me.

Glad you didn't cut, and glad you are reaching out to others with your thoughts and concerns.  And to echo what others have said or implied, yes, by all means talk to your p-doc about this.

Warm Regards,

What a terrible thing to say. Some guys just take so many things for granted and don't realize just how good they have it!

I live alone and sometimes the silence is deafning....

I say wear what makes you feel good, and as far as his **** remark... tell him to take a flying F at a rollin' donut!
