OMG that is just… wow. Beyond not OK. How are these men not worried about sexual harassment lawsuits? Jesus. I’m sorry you work with scum. That’s brutal.

I daydream of quitting every day on the way to work. I also sit at work fantasizing about ways in which I could get myself fired and also about having Jerry Maguire-style freakouts on everybody in the office.

What they’re doing isn’t just offensive, it’s illegal under Title VII.  That’s one of the worst examples of a “hostile work environment” I’ve heard in a while.  I’m not going to give you legal advice (I’m a lawyer), but from one woman to another, I’d be complaining – and if nothing changes, contact a lawyer.

That’s beyond awful! I hate my job, but at least I don’t have to put up with that. Just with an arrogant, incompetent a**hole for a boss.

lol, one of my favourite pasttimes on the bus to work is daydreaming about quitting in a justified rage. Sometimes my husband tells me to just do it, but I know we need the money. Sigh…I’m on the hunt for a new job, I can’t wait until I find something.

But if they discipline or fire you for complaining to HR, that’s retaliation – and completely actionable (not to mention beyond stupid on their part).  What you described above isn’t normal even for a “male-oriented” company – showing rape scenes?!

Aww that’s awful. I dream of quiting my job too…too bad I only live 1/4 of a mile away in a town with NO other jobs. Plus I work with both my parents so it would make them look bad…and I would never make this kind of money. Sigh.

I dream about quitting EVERY. DAY. 

I have a HORRIBLE boss in a super corporate environment… a severe micromanager who’s just MEAN. But, like you, I need the income and the economy sucks. So I just keep on applying to other places and hoping something will turn up, but with the way the company’s going, I’ll get laid off eventually!
