I don't find that very funny. Even if he wasn't being serious, some jokes are alright, and some aren't, and the audience and setting is important. You were being professional an following procedure, and he took advantage of it and basically said "I want to have sex with you." If I was his wife or daughter, I wouldn't laugh, I'd be mortified, talking to a stranger and employee like that and making them feel uncomfortable. That's inappropriate, and older people shouldn't get a pass on that stuff just because they're old, they're adults too, and unless they have a condition, they should know better. Sexual harassment isn't ok.

FYL, I once had an older woman in early 90's come into the clothing store where I work and ask for thigh high boots, a teddy (lingerie), and a thong. She was with her grand daughter too and I thought she was kidding... She wasn't and even said that old ladies get some too! I applauded her LOL

It's all fun and games until they start flirting with you. Cute can turn into cringe pretty damn fast!

No sexual harassment is not ok. But it was obviously a joke. I'm sure the old man was not even remotely serious. Besides that I'd even the wife and daughter were laughing that's a sign. It's not a "pass because he's old" yeah she was being a professional. But he is not required to be. Though I'm sure all sex based jokes are harassment far as you are concerned.

No, it was sexual harassment. By allowing people to "joke" about something inappropriate (that also obviously embarrassed the employee - who, at their JOB, can't just escape from the situation) it normalises sexual harassment; it has the message that sexual harassment is not only acceptable, but laughable. Regardless of whether he "intended" what he said or whether he "wasn't remotely serious" and "not required to be professional," it still does not make this an okay and acceptable "joke." And joking about having sex with someone isn't a joke anyway; it's harassment. Why is this such a hard concept for people to understand?? This sort of behaviour is NOT okay, regardless of age OR intent.

What I think is the most disturbing about this is that his daughter came along with him, was she very young? I wouldn't laugh if my father made a sex joke, not really a normal thing I would think.

LOL made my day wha made the joke okay to me was the fact that his wife and daughter were there listening our culture is full of viagra jokes and this one was great too bad you were so embarrassed that you couldn't come up with a quick reply I'm sorry our company policy prohibits that kind of service
