Help! My Coworkers Act Like Frat Boys

Help! My Coworkers Act Like Frat Boys

Share

 

Frat BoyDear CC: I work in a male-heavy office where banter often leads to sexual jokes about the female receptionist. I don't want to make a big deal of it, but I do think their talk is offensive. Should I just laugh along like one of the guys?

 

You're not one of the guys, but you don't want to come off like the Church Lady, either. Try affecting the world-weary condescension women reserve for frat boys everywhere: "Yeah, guys, we all know that Nikki at the front desk is sporting a lovely pair, but c'mon. That kind of stuff doesn't bother me, but if Ms. Tight Sphincter in accruals walks past and hears it, you're toast. And you know I'd miss you all so much."
