So here we go again…..another sexual harassment situation case at my workplace. Surprise surprise, right? I swear…I should protest and have the company make new guys go through a sexual harassment seminar or something. I am always the one falling victim to these sleeze balls.
It began from day one. Luis was being introduced to everyone. Before anyone even formally introduced him to me, he sees me and says to one of the other guys in Spanish, “Ohh…Chinita blah blah blah” something in a very lewd and inappropriate manner. I mean, he wasn’t even introduced to me yet. How would he know I didn’t understand what he was saying? And why was he saying such things about me as if he was so shocked about something. And shocked at what? Was it the fact that I was Asian? Maybe he is one of those Latinos from the boonies that have never seen Asians before. When he was being introduced to the others, he just greeted them in a normal manner as if they are the kind of people he sees everyday…male, Latino…one of his compadres.
I don’t think he really understands English. When I told him that I’d cut off his chorizo the next time he does that, I think he understood that I was upset about something but perhaps he didn’t understand the “cut off your” part. He would continually say “sorry sorry” to whatever he thought I was upset about. Then he would repeatedly continue the lewd gestures.
