The other day, I posted something on Facebook about how I hate being cat-called. Cat-calling is disgusting, NOT a compliment, unsolicited, and not flattering. No woman ever likes being cat-called.
Now there’s this guy at work who thinks of himself as the office clown. He likes to think that he’s funny (he’s not) and that everyone likes him (he’s wrong). Nobody likes him. At least, deep down, that’s what everybody feels. Everyone is just laughing at his jokes because he’s Management.
To me he is an immature man-child.
Anyway, so I posted that cat-calling thing and the next day when I got to the office, he’s like “Good morning, bitch!” I looked at him and said, “Excuse me?” He just smiled and I couldn’t stand his face and that stupid grin plastered on it so I went to the conference room for my morning training session.
During lunch break, when I got out of the room, he kept saying, “Hi, bitch! Hi, bitch!” and I’m like is this guy fucking serious??? At this point I’m one step closer to calling the HR on his scrawny ass. So I went up to him and said, “What did you just call me?”
“I saw your facebook post and you don’t like being cat-called, right? So I’m dog-calling you. Get it? “Bitch”? Female dog? Dog-calling?” and he said this with the stupidest smile on his face like he was so proud like “aren’t my jokes hilarious?” like he was actually proud of himself for thinking of how witty he is.
The weird thing is that I don’t think he understands how insulting it is, like he actually thinks it’s a funny joke.
So I said, “It’s not fucking funny, what the hell is wrong with you? You don’t call people, your coworkers, insulting names!” and he kind of just stood there with a fading grin, slowly realizing he’s an idiot. I just stared at him with my wtf face and walked away, still looking at him.
He looked around him to see if anybody saw what had transpired. Unfortunately for me, nobody else saw. I wanted to see him crumble on the spot with awkwardness and shame.
“It’s OK to have dreams, it’s OK to have goals, in my opinion. But I really think it’s much more about the climb and the work you do on the way up. The climb is really hard and really rough, but it’s also the best part because there are still places to climb up to.”
