I_Can't_Believe_it's_not_Boutros: Hello, everyone, and welcome to Match Game 2011. Let's get started.

The first question is: St. Louis woman awarded $95 million after former boss allegedly masturbated on her __________.


Bippy.
 
2011-06-13 08:49:20 AM
I have to be honest I would do pretty much anything to lay my hands on $95M.

This I would probably do for a lot less ... just knowing this makes me sad :-(

It would have been funny had her name been Eileen.

Alford claimed that the store's then-manager, Richard Moore, gave her inappropriate nicknames and touched her inappropriately when she first began working there in 2005. Nearly a year after she was hired, she claimed, he came up to her in the stock room and whacked her on the head with his penis. Then, later that day, he lifted her shirt and masturbated over her as he held her down, she said.

He did not return to work after those incidents.

Months before the final incident, Alford said she called the employee harassment hotline, but an investigator never got back to her. The suit also claims that she was denied a promotion for reporting the harassment.


Really? A year? This goes on for a year while she's still working there?

The girl got smacked in the face with someone's wang. Inappropriate? Definitely. Jailarity should ensue? Hell yes.

A lottery-level payout? Ehh.. seems a little excessive. Doubly so when she kept working through the day.

Sounds like unnecessary enrichment to me. It's bad and all, but not 100M bad, not even really sure it's 10M bad.
 
2011-06-13 08:55:23 AM
I'd do it for 50 bucks.
 
2011-06-13 08:55:47 AM
Those of you who question why she put up with it for a year seem to be less than familiar with how difficult it is for an under-educated person to find a job in this economy.

Spazmotic: Sounds like unnecessary enrichment to me. It's bad and all, but not 100M bad, not even really sure it's 10M bad.


i believe the point is to punish the company bad enough that they get their shiat together and dont allow this sort of thing to go on for a year in the future, regardless of her desert of award money.

Oh, get off it. She just got creamed on. She's already got a leg up in the field of prostitution (probably literally). Her resume is now splattered across the web, so she would be assured to have a job AND a specialty clientele.

doglover: What I want to know is what the REAL story was here.

Hypothetical situation: I whack you with my bare penis right on your head at work and you CONTINUE WORKING FOR THE REST OF THE DAY!?!?!

Second, I hold you down and masturbate on you against your will and you're covered in my love tadpoles and you DON'T GO TO THE farkING COPS!?!?!

I mean, the woman's side of the story must be something farkin' completely different than the article is reporting because as it is, I'm of the opinion that she was literally asking for it. Not in a rape apologist way, but as in vocalizing words like "Do something nasty to me, baby." to the boss fellow. 'Cause really, if you bop someone in the head with your penis and masturbate on them, they can call the cops in every case but the one where they invited you to do so first.


I agree. The story just doesn't make sense.
 
2011-06-13 09:11:16 AM
Don't have time to read all the comments, so someone may have already pointed this out, but from the stores statement, they don't deny he did it, they don't deny they should pay, they just don't want to pay 95 million.
At that point, if I was Ruler of the World, I would double the amount.

/just sayin'

One person's sexual harassment is more important than the livelihood of tens of thousands of workers and ordinary shareholders? Really?

MugzyBrown: How exactly does one hit somebody in the head with your penis?

There're some logistics here I'm missing.


Here's how it works: The woman hangs by her legs on a bar, upside down. Then the man puts on a blindfold and drops his drawers, steps forward, and swings his dick around, trying to hit her. It's called "Peñata".

I think the companies who allow environments like this to persist despite repeated warnings and complaints are the ones sucking all the humanity, life, and resources out of America.
Not to mention the asshats who cover-up for criminals, tar victims and attack the right to legal recourse, just because they perceive some sort of team association as being more important than truth, justice and the American Way.

Speak for yourself.
 
2011-06-13 09:20:55 AM
Yes, most people would ALLOW this for 95 million.

But the fact is she was held down, while some creepy mouth breather sexually assaulted her AGAINST HER WILL.

So for forcing it on her, she gets 95 Mil (but prolly closer to 40 mil or less, once the judge adjusts the award).

/ most people would not allow someone to sexually assault there daughter, wife or mother for $95 million

Yes. The real problem here isn't that a company ignored an employee's request for help with sexual harassment for months until it culminated in her being held down and creamed on, it's them the damn lawyers.

She attempted to resolve the matter properly, the company failed to respond, she was assaulted, there is nothing that can be done to the company that is too much. It seem they had every opportunity to stop this and didn't, so fark 'em. If the only method available to citizens to keep corporations in line and force them to accept a reasonable level of responsibility is to attack their bank accounts, so be it.

Compassion goes both ways, companies have regular people working for them you know. A massive lawsuit could force the company to downsize and innocent employees who had nothing to do with the situation. One idiot in the company doing something stupid doesn't equate to $95 million. God the left wing libtards are sucking all of humanity, life and resources out of America.

BesiktasBoy83: SJKebab: BesiktasBoy83: OK guys how is this?
The guy who did it is iunvolved too. They agree before it that they will split the money after the thing happens. He does it with his p___ and then gets fired. He doesnt lose the 95 million dollars, he GETS say 30 million. Great idea you have to admit.

I'll do it for 25 million.

OK are you a girl?!


No. Are you willing to take a facefull of kebablets in return for the lions share of the proceeds?

I'm guessing that many farkers have seen this guy in his new career in the pr0n industry (the article says he never came back to work after the eventful day). I mean, his member must be HUGE if he can whack people on the head! To whack somebody with an average six incher, you'd have to be so close that you would probably be more likely to hit them with your hip.....

Bullshiat. Those are the jobs that always have vacancies. The turn-over is greater than any others and new employees always start at the bottom of the pay scale.

JackalRabbit: Personal dignity is worth more than $95 million dollars. It doesn't really have a monetary amount that can be assigned to it.


But if it did it would be far less than 95 million.

This article doesn't have a whole lot more detail, but it does say that criminal charges are pending so she apparently went to the cops at some point - I'm guessing she would have had them collect some of that DNA evidence.
Apparently she called the harassment hotline in May 2006, but was never contacted back by investigators. However, the investigator's must have contacted the store manager, because the perv's supervisor confronted her in front of him, and then warned the perv to "watch his back". Then the penis whacking and actual assault happened that fall.
It also says that the award was broken into $15 million in compensatory damages (Which seems reasonable) and $80 million in punitive.

So now the lives of thousands of employees are screwed because of one guy and his inability to control his cock., if I was a share holder or someone who lost their job, this guy would be found, tortured and killed.

Do you think this guy would have played her head like a bongo with his cock if he KNEW it would cost him his life?

If it was REALLY a traumatic experience she would have quit and called the POLICE on the first day, not hung around for a year.

Another Government Employee: haterade69: I do love that the majority of the public is extremely upset about... the victim getting so much money. The right wing truly has done an incredible job sucking all the humanity, life, and resources out of America.

It really is an insane amount.

The sad part about it is the lady will be lucky to see a quarter of it after legal fees and taxes. Which is why the jury pumped it up.


I would think the jury meant for it to punitive to Aaron's for not following through on the girl's initial call. Had they investigated like they're supposed to, then the penis-whacking & jacking-off incidents may have been avoided.

/Who the hell does that?
//I've heard of "perv-switches" going off but at what point does someone say, "Hey, Ashley's in the stockroom. I think I'll whack her in the head with my penis" and thinks it's a good idea?

Found a couple more articles, although all of them seem to be post verdict, not from around the time of the incident:

This has a video interview with the girl, and a mugshot of the perv. (new window)

I've worked in rent-to-own for 11 years and I can completely believe this story the rent-to-own industry is still stuck in the 1970s in regards to how it operates especially towards women. Combine that with the fact that rent-to-own operates in a sort of grey area of the law and likes to stay out of the mainstream spotlight and I couldn't imagine a company even the size of Aaron's to do anything but to ignore a complaint of this sort, sweep it under the rug and then hope the woman gives up and quits.
