My office Christmas party tends to involve Chinese food.
If I wanted Chinese food for the holidays, I'd convert to Judaism or something.

There are a few attractive women in my office, but they're obnoxious hipsters who I would want nothing to do with.

To be fair, that's higher quality writing than most Daily Mail articles.

As a chef, you have to be careful in sleeping with staff. And as a manager, I really have to be careful with sleeping with staff. That being said, waitresses and bartenders are who I mix with. You spend a fair amount of your time, in a team environment, you get to know them well, and you hang out socially. And yes, there's often booze involved, so hooking up happens. You spend 12-14 hours a day with folks, yes, you develop some attachments with them.

More than 90% of people think HR has no right to know if we're sleeping with someone from the office

HR must be the other 10% in the survey. Really? Get the fark out of here with that!

Can we just retire that tired old euphemism, "sleeping with," and just say "having sex with?"

I met my fiancee at work, I was her boss at a retail job, and she quit a short while after. I could have gotten in some serious shiat for dating someone below me on the hierarchy, but A. we were both adults and were able to keep it going without it being obvious at work and B. it was no one else's business, if anyone called me out on it, and eventually it became well known, I would just deny deny deny.

The only other thing I really get out of this story is that it seems pretty obvious to me that if 85% of people are sleeping with people at the office, then it's no shock that 60% of the people are getting divorced.

I resisted 4 office temptations over the years, and succumbed to one.  She got fired for something unrelated to us banging, and I was pissed.  Her last name - I kid thee not - was Fleishaker.

I prefer "keeping company."

What if you were in the porn business?  Wouldn't it be a scandal if you weren't farking your co-workers?

"90.5 per cent of the respondents were actually glad to have sex with their co-workers."

That quote is 3 words too long.

My least favorite euphemism is "hook up." I think of tractors pulling trailers when I hear that, and it really doesn't sound anything like sex to me - it sounds more like just getting stuff done. I have to watch myself so I don't say things like "Let's hook up at the Buffalo Jump before we head out to that BMA just past Divide Road." My buddies probably wouldn't notice or care, but I'd feel weird about it if I slipped.

"Hook up." Grr.

There was this Nurse anesthetist  - redhead, tattoo'd from neck to to wrist to ankle - who lived with a 9ft anaconda and she danced on weekends. Also a Unitarian Universalist 'minister'. 5'11".

If you've ever read Stranger in a Strange Land she was Bob Heinlein's inspiration for Patty. Beyond this I shall not say.

Yes I will. She was limber.

Mrs. Fool and I worked for the same company, albeit in different locations. Her boss actually asked me to postpone the wedding so she could finish a big project she was working on. We didn't accept his offer.

What I don't get is how people can have affairs and not have it eat away at their conscience? Even the mere thought of sleeping with someone else and the likely end of the relationship with my (soon to be) wife that would come about as a result, is enough to scare me away from ever even considering it. I guess if you don't care about that, or are really that confident that you don't think you'll get caught, you can make it work, but having something like that gnawing at me would give me an anxiety disorder.

I think I saw her dance with the anaconda, then took her to VIP room.

So it's not conscience but cowardice that keeps you faithful?

I never cheated on an SO because honor.

Huh? Cowardice? I would never cheat on my fiancee because I love her and would never do anything to hurt her, and the end of my current relationship would probably disrupt my mental stability. Even if I knew I could get away with it, or hell, had her permission to do it, I don't think I could.

All this tells me is that 85% of people don't have social lives outside of work.  Which actually sounds a little low.

Well fear is one of multiple reasons why I couldn't even do it, it just happened to be the one I was discussing right there.

Any study or discussion about the frequency of farking coworkers, and the standards and boundaries thereof, needs to distinguish between desk jobs and restaurant/retail. While it goes on in both, the difference in magnitude and attitude is night and day.

What's sad is that even most corporate and firm websites feature photos of models; it's pathetic when even most corporatistas think that cute = smart, and that they're not cute enough to earn your automatic trust.

It was the first and only one that you thought to discuss until I called you on it.  It's OK;  it wasn't exactly honor that kept me from cheating, but fear of losing my honor.  All fear is fear of losing something, including the absence of something (e. g., cancer).
