My idiot ex-husband looked at me all shocked once when I mentioned something about being pregnant and exclaimed "you were pregnant?!" So I replied "WTF, are you serious? I just had an abortion last year" and he goes "yeah, but you were pregnant?!" *sigh* this fool is twice my age with a daughter only a couple of years younger than me. Ignorance is truly a sin and a shame...
Feel kinda bad for him.. not as much as the girl on her period though :(
167 is right guys, at my school they did go over the subject, but boys never heard a word of it. We were separated by gender for the whole unit. Girls at my school also didn't learn about the guy's side of it either unless they opted to take the more detailed class in high school. At which point, many conservative parents signed the waiver excusing their child from SexEd altogether. (Believe it or not, this was even in California, where widespread SexEd has massive support.)
I'm just speechless. How is this possible for a grown-up man in his twenties?
3, I'm only 5 years older than OP's co-manager. These are my guesses to make it possible: He has always fainted due to blood, his parents didn't let him watch and learn about puberty with his classmates growing up, he's been told scary stories regarding women's periods, or all of the above. I feel badly for OP, for having to explain it to him. I feel even worse for the lady who was denied a tampon change.
He may need to go back to 7th grade or under I learned from tv at the age of 12, I didn't flip sh*t
Maybe he was homeschooled. If that is the case his mother or father may have talked to him about sex just not the sexual reproductive reprocess. Maybe, he is super religious and is saving himself for the woman he marries. Maybe he's wait to hear about stuff like that from the one he loves. Or maybe he's just an idiot.
My school never taught any of this stuff. "Sex ed" (if you could call it that) was only taught in 7th and 8th grade, at which point most girls had gotten their periods already. Not that it mattered, because they never talked about puberty, or sex. So what did we learn? I don't know either.
Can you imagine how much life would suck if we had to go to the hosipital every time we had our period? By the way you might want to send your boss a helpful link made for 9 year olds who are first getting the talk.
What an idiot we have many other ways to get out of having sex than to lie about being on period I guess he skipped the sex education class in school.
Can you legally tell employees they cant go to the bathroom!? That is ridiculous!!
#67 I'm sure that'd go over well just walking off. You coukd technically walk off the job any time you like too doesn't mean you won't lose your job for it. As a cashier myself I can tell you getting bathroom breaks is nearly impossible. My work states we can take a bathroom break any time we like but the store has to be empty and we have to sign off our register lock up the store since usually we are working alone. Do You know how hard it is to get a busy store empty?! I can't very well walk away from the register and just go with people in the store, half our stuff would be gone when I came back, and do you think telling people they need to wait literally 60 seconds goes over very well with them? hell no, you get screaming raging customers who then go complain to corporate that I made them wait.
#158 It depends on how long your shifts are, if you work five hours or more he is legally required to give you a fifteen minute break and if you are under the age of 18, a half hour meal break as well. Look up the labor laws in your area, you may be able to show him where he is wrong.
I work in a station that kind of resembles a gas station... all by myself. Im not allowed to leave the place unless Im searching for a manager. even then I have to get someone else to find the manager for me so I can go back to my station to handle customers. It can be annoying to make sure you get your breaks when youre supposed to!
