"NO surprise.....I've worked with men for MANY years.....that is their M.O."

Do you mean the M.O. of all men or just those with whom you have worked?

I took it as a very sexist comment but I’ll wait for HA to clarify.

"When Mike Bloomberg's friends and admiring colleagues compiled a small booklet of his "wit and wisdom" nearly 30 years ago, they opened it with this one-liner: "Make the customer think he’s getting laid when he’s getting [expletive]."

From there, the crude language continued: "What do I want?" it says on page six. "I want an exclusive, 10-year contract, an automatic extension, and I want you to pay me. And I want [oral sex] from Jane Fonda. Have you seen Jane Fonda? Not bad for fifty."

(MORE: Bloomberg's sexist remarks fostered company culture that degraded women, lawsuits allege)
And sexist: "If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of to Bloomingdales."

Glad to see that Bloomberg has a sense of humor.


Since the quote was commenting on CORP environment (bolded).....you should assume my
comment was corporate directed....17years worth.

EXAMPLE....probably TMI, but at a managers good bye party ( he really was an ok guy) the
drinks were flowing freely and the subject of female co workers (some present and having
a good time) floated around. A manager is commenting to me...."You didn't know you had a reputation at Lakewood, did you"? I was STUNNED.....then he says to me..."you were voted
best buns at Lakewood."

The really stunning part about that comment was, I had always tried to have a low profile at work.:huh:

Just before I left corp america.....the corp slogan was ''take every opportunity to delight your customer''.....which was,of course,an asinine thought, because they were slicing and dicing
departments/personnel/MJR'S......

I’ve been working in corporate America for over 30 years and have never run into that kind of behavior - even when it was supposedly cool. I still say the comment was sexist.

YOUR level within the corp is perhaps the reason....My position sr.operations clerk and my
immediate co workers were comm teks and 1st level and 2 level mgmt.......

Ladies, am I left to assume that the appellation, "best buns" could only be ascribed to a woman at the level of clerk and not Senior Vice-President?
I love that comment " I had always tried to have a low profile at work". Does that mean you did wear a form fitting skirt/pants?
How's that for being sexist. Not quite Bloomberg's level but then I do not have billions of dollars to pay for lawsuits.
Go Dems!

KNEW I would get rations of roaring laughter......but let me explain, I that time I worked in "plant:"
that office was on the outer edge of westside of Lakewood....it was an installation facility NOT
a downtown office (worked there also, with the usual yuppie attire).....in "plant," jeans were the
norm,because of the nature of work.(this was well before the present day causal attire)....so
it was a dressed down atmosphere.

The example I gave was one of the more innocuous incidents....there were MANY MORE
thru out the years.....

It's just my humble opinion, but I think all of these democrat candidates belong in the "whine" cave...
