1. Making entire group go out drinking and to strip clubs. Not allowed to leave until he says so. Doesn't give you a bonus if you refuse to go out. Shows up at work still drunk. 2. Second guy Verbally and physically abused PAs. Would call into office via intercom, stand up and be naked. Proposition the women, etc... 3. Third guy Big deal at firm. Went to HR and demanded that I work for him (wanted to pull me from another area). I said no. My boss was them pissed and thought I was sleeping with the guy. I had to go to HR and report that I want nothing to do with this guy and I had to move to different area (Pervert boss oversaw dept I was in). [ Reply | More ]

I 100% agree with Matt Damon. I'm a woman who is a survivor of sexual abuse. The blending it 'all' together under one umbrella is pissing me off. I'm also a fair person. You don't ruin a guys career for an over the clothing butt grab. Wrong and inappropriate but I don't count that as an assault. No one is going to believe anyone if everyone is saying "#metoo" - I think Franken shouldn't have resigned. I think Trump, Weinstein, Louis C.K, Hoffman, etc... should. It's simple: If your dick was out when no one asked to see it you are guilty. If everyone was fully clothed and laughing ensued it is probably a joke. [ Reply | More ]

Sorry, yes, should have mentioned. Laundry is moving down the hall. It doesn't make sense the way it is set up now. Our building has had a leak from the roof for a year due to neighboring building's letting their chimneys crumble. This resulted in it raining in my laundry room every time it rained outside. Bunch of work needs to be done so figured it was a good opportunity to reconfigure it all. [ Reply | More ]

You should tell the counselor's principal (or whomever the manager is) that she/he did a great job with your son. Send a typewritten letter to the school, or send an email and cc the counselor.
