FML - The follow-up
nevergiveinever Say more :
OP here, this is a long story but bare with me, lots of shit has gone down in the past week: First off, to those telling me to go to HR, here's the thing: my managers ARE HR. If they won't do anything about it, then we're screwed. Which absolutely sucks ass. Here's the full story: I work in an intricate metals factory, because that's really all my town has to offer, but manual labor a pays really well and I have bills to pay so I can't complain. And yes I will move eventually but I need to sav

Next step: HR. Seriously though. Sexual harassment is so common and underreported. I've been sexually harassed and my manager witnessed and encouraged it. That psychotic idiot should have been fired, but I kept my mouth shut and suffered silently. Don't let that happen to you.

My guess is the manager probably assumed it was a joke since they had a long meeting about it and OP just brought it up. Still this should not be treated as a joke. The manager needs to not joke around and get to the bottom of it.

and it's even more ruined by the bitches which use it as blackmail or a callout on someone they don't like, which ends up in things like this. seriously though, take it up the ladder, this needs to be dealt with

While I agree , I've seen far to many people cry harassment for the stupidest things. This is why I hated doing managerial work. Grown folks shouldn't need to be reminded to do their own work and keep their hands/ inappropriate comments .to themselves. If it is truly that bad then it should be dealt with swiftly and written up/ termination to maintain the integrity of the workplace .

Good for you for trying. Hopefully you can get this resolved, is there anyone else you can report to? While you're at it, report that manager. Even if he thought you were joking, it's never okay to ignore the needs of people you are supposed to be looking out for.

I know how you feel. This one girl always harasses me and has a problem with many others at my job and yet whenever I go to one of the managers, they don't believe me. She's actually convinced them that she's the victim.

Why? OP gets harassed so they should find another job? Screw that, if it's an extended, serious issue then that offended deserves to be fired. OP earned that job, you don't give up your livelihood for some pervert.
