Letting the fox loose in the hen house

I am now the rep in charge of making sure that no one is harassed in the office. Reactions from colleagues include bursting into laughter or asking, "No, really? You?"

Truly, it doesn't seem right. It was because of my brilliant idea to put the featured guns 'n' gals for October one year as the screen saver on the computer in the shared reference office (many jobs past) that prompted the chair of our department to send around a strongly worded memo reminding us of the University's harassment policy. Some Women's Studies student had complained.

In all seriousness though, I'll do well at the task *because* I don't care about everyday workplace nonsense, but at the same time, I am hard-core about a diverse office.

You'd have to write me up if I worked with you. Today would be one of those highly offensive days. LOL!

Will you be the judge, jury and executioner, too?

Congratulations, Snooze!

Good luck ensuring everyone in the office is equally harassed!
