So this is how dates work right

Please please please

I saw a post about “Please stop hitting on women while they’re at work” and I 100% agree with it, which is why I’m making a separate post to say please don’t hit on people in general when they’re at work.

I work at a bakery and we have this sweet 16 about to turn 17 year old boy who works up front of our store. He used to work at the place next door to us and, while he was there, a girl he was working with developed a bit of a crush on him and asked him out.

He said no, that he has a girlfriend (which she already knew) and thought they could just continue on being friends and coworkers.

Since beginning work at our bakery she stops in every single day and talks to him for the entirety of her 30 minute long break. He has told her multiple times that he’s at work and can’t stand around and talk and when I asked him if he was uncomfortable his response was a very relieved “Oh, God, yes.” 

He’s tried to talk to one of the owners about it and his response was “You can talk to her after work” not realizing this poor boy is being made incredibly uncomfortable on a daily basis in the work place. 

When we told him he could come into the back to find something to do if he needed to he was so incredibly thankful and relieved. This girl spent twenty minutes standing up front waiting for him to come back after he said he had to go do something. Twenty minutes in the front of the store ever after being told he can’t talk to her. He doesn’t know what would happen if he says that he doesn’t want to talk to her and is genuinely nervous every time she walks in.

The only reprieve he gets is from the bakers in the back saying “I get it. Come back here” because the Owners don’t understand that he, a male coworker, can be made uncomfortable by these unwanted advancements being made toward him. 

Please.

This post isn’t made to undersell not hitting on women while they’re at work. I get that and that’s why this separate post exists.

Please.

Don’t hit on people when they’re at work.

Don’t hit on people when they can’t tell you no.

I’m forgetful sometimes. [ Hardly your fault. But I’m sure you remember him. Arnold. The person who created you. ] I’m sorry, I don’t think I recall anyone by that name. [ And yet you can. Somewhere under all those updates, he is still there. Perfectly preserved. Your mind is a walled garden. Even death cannot touch the flowers blooming there. Have you been hearing voices? Has Arnold been speaking to you again? ]

I haven’t been doing requests lately, but an anon messaged me today and, to paraphrase, they were having a sucky sucky day. And I totally know what they’re going through. So I did a quick Clexa sketch for them. And just as a service announcement, i feel obligated to say I’m there to listen to all of you, if you ever need someone to talk to. A new voice, a stranger, a punching bag, I’m there.

It’s election day. Please vote for Hillary. I have never been so nervous about an election. These two candidates are polar opposites and to say they’re both equally bad is false and dangerous. Trump and his VP want to strip away basic human rights for everyone who isn’t a cisgender straight white man. Say goodbye to safe abortions, marriage equality, and any future progress we would make by having a blue supreme court. Even if you don’t like Hillary, if she wins, the supreme court will go blue for the first time in decades. That’s HUGE. Human rights will move forward at an exponential rate. Hillary is qualified. She has done amazing things despite the GOP smear campaigns saying she hasn’t. 

I know none of my followers are voting for Trump, but a lot of you want to vote third party. Please do not split the vote. If you are liberal and you do not vote for Hillary, you are splitting the vote, and ultimately helping Trump win. This is dangerous. This is scary. This is real. This whole election reminds me of the rise of Hitler. 

Please, if you can, just vote.
