A mere week later…

“You know our policy against sexual harassment?”
I felt the walls cave in and the only thing I saw was our corporate policy:

The oilcans made me think about how business sometimes is run… to smooth a deal can be with bribes or as in this case other methods. I have never been in this situation, but I have been in a few uncomfortable situations.
It may take me a few days to return the comments, but I will make sure to reciprocate your comment.
