Wow, both those scenarios are WAY out of line! That conversation at work is not even legal – it goes way beyond the line of sexual harassment. And your Future Mother-In-Law – that’s just gross!!!

Yeah, that’s not normal. I work in a store with some young’uns and they sometimes let their talk get out of hand… but they always quiet up when someone is clearly uncomfortable or when there’s a manager or someone "uncool" around.

The Future Mother-In-Law comment is very strange. I got uncomfortable when my Future Mother-In-Law was making fun of the newscaster for saying "servicing" instead of "serve" … and said what kind of sexual act servicing is. I can’t believe that, but it’s nowhere near as bad as what you’ve described!

I’m a pretty open so I don’t have a problem with explicite stuff like that but it is just NOT APPROPRIATE in the workplace.  EVER.

I’m with these girls – That doesn’t sound normal to me. And your Future Mother-In-Law thing, that’s so wrong.

Um…if your Future Mother-In-Law used o sell sex toys…I wouldn’t be surprised if she mentioned sex…often…have you seen "Meet the Fockers?"

But at work…that’s SH (sexual harassment).  The thing is, if you don’t speak up, then the next girl to fill your shoes will have to put up with it because they’ll all think it’s ok.  Make it clear that it is NOT ok in front of you.  You shouldn’t have to listen to it.  (I’m no stranger to raunchy talk, I’m in the Navy for petes sake.  But you have to draw a line where there is none so they know it’s not ok!!)

Ill.  Is there a higher-up to the manager?  Is this a national company you work for?  The 17 year old is a minor and, depending on the state you live in, the manager can  legally be considered in violation of Sexual Misconduct Involving a Minor.  

That aside, MightySapphire is absolutely right about this being a case of SH.  You probably don’t want to feel like a narc, but these discussions are completely unacceptable and you have the right to work in an environment free of sexual impropriety.  What’s happening at your job is "Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment" due to the frequency of these discussions.  Morality is not the issue here; bottom line, its illegal.
