Wright gave his side of the story to the investigators, and he seems to be sincere and genuinely baffled. Yes, he said, he likes to ask people to "feel my pipes" as an ice-breaker. Yes, he remembers saying some of the things in the complaints, but meant them in the spirit of kidding.

Wright said he has "threatened hundreds of people with firing and they all know it is a joke."



Are we certain that Mr. Wright isn't, in reality, this man?

Except, you know, those times when it isn't.

Pipes? Plural? WTF?
 
2005-04-05 11:16:21 AM
Yeah, you know the first time one of these women made a joke about his tiny pecker, they would have been gone. *rolls eyes*

Men who do this are just trying to mask their own inadequacy, IMHO.

Could this guy have been dumber? I mean, I was on the receiving end of this kind of shiat when I was an admin (*cough* glorified secretary *cough*), and even I complained to the director and got the guy disciplined.

These women are lawyers. They will make you pay for your insolence.

if it was me it would be feel my pipecleaners.

(1) Do not ask people to feel you.

/you mean that's wrong???
 
2005-04-05 12:08:02 PM
i dont get it.

what the hell would this guy expect to get from saying such things?

To make women feel bad?

Make himself feel better?

The worst thing about people who want you to touch them, is they never seem to accept no for an answer. They think you're just shy, and by insisting, they're helping you out of your social shell or something.
 
2005-04-05 12:32:10 PM
You probably shouldn't email a lawyer silly messages, but sometimes you can't resist. Mr. Wright is readily available to those who would look.
 
2005-04-05 12:33:25 PM
mostly_harmless, to clarify, from the earlier article here.

As for asking colleagues to feel his "pipes," or biceps, Wright said he made the suggestion to men and women alike. "I treat them all the same," he said.

[Jennifer has just been insulted in the warehouse by the warehouse crew]

Jennifer: I just can't believe their total lack of respect.

David Brent: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Not only did they undermine you in an authoritative sense, but they left an image in my mind of you naked on all fours literally being done doggy style.
 
2005-04-05 01:41:16 PM
I don't get it. You want to be a member of the "good ol' boys" network but you want them to change for you and treat you like a lady? You can't have it both ways. True, he's an asshat, but he's just treating the women just like he treats the men.
 
2005-04-05 01:50:55 PM
Is that wrong? Should I not have done that?

I gotta be honest with you, I've worked at a bunch of places in the past, and I'll tell you, people do that all the time.

At 115 decibels, you can feel my pipes from quite a distance.

by pipes he means his arms, not his dick.

No, I don't think women want to be a member of the "good ol' boys"

I think they want to be treated with respect and judged by their work, nothing more.

Then again what do I know, I am a man.

Asking people about their sex life at work is inappropriate period. Just because guys will let you get away with it does not mean it is OK.

It's a column, not a news article, and is clearly labeled as such.

Holland & Knight has a lot in common with Catholic bishops, doncha think?

Feel my Pipes?

or was it Galdys Knight saying "Feel my Pip's"?

or according to the Schindlers Teri Schiavo kept saying "Feed my Pipe"?

Did he use "Feel my Pipes" doing Pro Bono work?

They should similarly have one implanted on their backs...for slow dancing.

I don't understand why you wouldn't just say, to men or women, "Feel my biceps."

WTF. The guy is an asshat.

This is probably the same guy who would fart and sit on some little kids head in gym class. These guys never grow up.

When he told that woman that her co-worker was wearing her undies on his head, he obviously meant it in a good way.

I've just been informed that one's arms are one's pipes. Imagine my disappointment.

Coincidence?
 
2005-04-05 02:21:22 PM
what the hell were those women doing in the workplace to begin with!?

i, for one, am outraged!

Wow, guys like this make me feel all grown up.

\still amused by dick and fart jokes

David Brent: We have access to the internet. But it isn't censored, is that a good or a bad thing?

Gareth Keenan: Bad.

David Brent: Well, that's not for us to say. But I can type in, say, 'sex... fetish'. It takes a little while. There. two thousand, two hundred and thirty matches. Just click on one, at random. Aaaagh, there. 'Dutch girls must be punished for having big boobs'. Now, you don't punish anyone, Dutch or otherwise, for having big boobs.

Gareth Keenan: If anything, they should be rewarded.

David Brent: They should be EQUAL.

Gareth Keenan: Women are equal.

David Brent: I've always said that, so...
 
2005-04-05 02:23:44 PM
Another reason not to hire females. They have no sense of humor.

All women are doing is hurting themselves. If the nannies won't let a person say what he wants in his own business, that person should just hire men.

Beware the thought police.

Yeah, I don't get that either. I work for a Fortune 100 company, and in the hallway walking by, two loud annoying gruby engineer types will be doing something like:

"Hey man I talked to this one chick wow she was hot"
..'Did you do her? Holy shiat dude'
"NO farking way man" something something..

Like these shiatbirds don't even pay attention to what's going on around them. Very strange.

Tucker Max is a loser with a web site that is an incredible waste of electrons.

That is all.
