Is the "fail" tag for submitter?
 
2013-10-26 11:24:37 AM
Before RTFA I thought, "that's fair, as I wouldn't expect men to show cleavage I the workplace either."

After RTFA, what the fark is a "urinal position"? That whole memo was farked up. Half the items applied equally to men and the other half were just bizarre.

I think it's the title inflation term for "bathroom attendant."  You've definitely got to watch out for some of those guys, let me tell you!

I would like some examples of hard words. Do they mean words like inflexible and rigid or more like obsequious or vociferous?
 
2013-10-26 02:53:04 PM
Nice how they listed 8/150 tips. Because space in internet columns is so expensive.....
 
2013-10-26 03:11:19 PM
You definitely don't want to get a bunch of fat, bald, middle-aged men all worked up in their cubicles at 10:30 in the morning.
 
2013-10-26 03:14:57 PM
So can we see the other 150 tips?

2013-10-26 03:19:28 PM
I see nothing wrong with this. They don't want you acting like an airhead around the office.

Perhaps ululation, extemporaneous and synchronicity?

Come on, guys! Get real! The Fifties are all about cleavage!

But you can't argue with advice like this:

Think Lauren Bacall, not Marilyn Monroe.

I think I smell a rat:

No one heard Hillary the day she showed cleavage.

Now I am sure I smell a rat:

Use a relaxed, open throat, breathe from the abdomen & keep your mouth open.

That is advice that applies to some men only.

It looks to me that one of the ladies got her hands on a memo that was meant to amuse the boys in the new freshman uptake and was thus for His Eyes Only.

It is defintely sophomoronic:

Watch out for the urinal position.

I am not sure what this means, but I suspect it means:

Learn to pee standing up if you want to go anywhere in this company, girls!

My advice to the ladies is to be lady-like:  get yourselves better lawyers and take the SOBs for every cent they've got.

I see nothing wrong with this list. In fact, I'm going to print it out and use it as a list of tips for my presentation Monday.
 
2013-10-26 03:32:36 PM
Don't speak when the men are speaking.

Great, just great --- I haven't eaten lunch yet.

That's pretty much a speech class regurgitated in the form of a really boring memo.

"Make sure the podium is low enough or you're tall enough" made me giggle, though. If the podium isn't adjustable, just concentrate really hard and you can grow a couple of inches before going onstage!

/yes I know that's not what they meant
//still thought it was funny
 
2013-10-26 03:56:51 PM
As a man: ladies you should really not show off the cleavage at work. All guys love it and we will (hopefully discretely) admire it all day long, but a lot of guys are going to have difficulty treating you as a professional peer while at the same time drooling over your bazoongas. Personally, when I see a woman going the extra mile to show off her boobies at work I assume that she is trolling for special treatment.

I want a big titty lawyer, she's always going to get me off.

Are you saying "a pinch to grow an inch" doesn't actually work?

Depending on the pinch, it sometimes works on men. But it doesn't make them any taller.

Misogynist!  A woman should be able to act as air-headed or slutty as she chooses without being oppressed by the patriarchy.  Don't take away their empowerment!

Maybe they noticed that this behavior was way more prevalent in females than male.
