FML - The follow-up
SoonFired Say more :
Wow, my first FML post. It's actually a government organization, dating is prohibited because of "Conflict of Interest." We are close to the same size physically. We both wear the middle of road medium size. In all reality, its our last names on the shirt, but it still sucks.

that's stupid, IMO. your workplace should have no say in your personal life, assuming your personal life doesn't interfere with your work.

I was thinking that as well. I can understand a ban on dating people at the same location, but a completely separate location? Why should it matter, as there won't be any problems should they break up. Then there's the whole issue with what if you meet someone, start dating, and then find out you work for the same company but different locations. OP should look up his state laws seeing if there's anything regarding employer dating policies and to the extent they can be enforced.

That and... you seriously fit into your fiance's clothes? Actually, MOST places I've worked were fine with employees dating, even in the same location, as long as you're not their supervisor/they're not your supervisor. But, every place has different rules. Dumb rule, though.

@ number 48, its not about fitting into her clothes. A lot of companies dont waste time making different shapes and sizes for their uniforms so both the OP and his fiance probably has a size medium, which would by why the OP didnt notice he was wearing her shirt.

Sorry, I tried to give you thumbs up but hit the wrong one. I would love to know more about this! It seems like it would be illegal to have such a policy in place, but I'm not quite sure about it myself.

And your comment is idiotically ignorant. My husband and I are within an inch of each other in height, are both within the recommended BMI range, and can trade both socks and generic-fit medium-size shirts. It happens. To the OP, I'm saying equal parts FYL, for having to work for a company with such a prehistoric policy, and YDI, for not looking in the mirror in the morning.

It's relevant when a woman needs to wear extra-large socks. Men in the US with feet over a size 9, and women with feet over a size 10 1/2, usually can't fit in generic women's socks. I wear mostly unisex socks in a larger size, so they're tradeable.

#118- If you're going to try to correct people, you should at least use the correct words. The term you are looking for is "anorectic or anorexic." There is no such thing as "an anoretic." And yes, anorexic can be a noun. So there is such thing as an anorexic.

I totally agree! Where the hell do business get off telling you what you can and can't do with your personal life, especially who you can and can't be with? That's disgusting.
