Today, we got a new employee at work. I said hi, and told her that if she needed help figuring out our computer system, then to give me a call. She promptly accused me of sexual harassment and filed a complaint against me. FML
OfficeDroneWoman tells us more :
OP here. Some of you noticed it said "woman." Yes, I'm a woman. That's why her complaint made no sense. Glad to report, though, that after a couple days HR got back to me and said I was off the hook, and told her that if she makes any more accusations like that, she'll be fired. She can't even look me in the eye now.

If this girl acts like this at work, which is scary, think about how she is outside of the work place. If/when she goes out, imagine a guy just saying, "Hi." She'd have a bouncer kick the guy out for being too aggressive towards her. Yikes!

65 and 66 are correct. If you offer a helping hand or being nice, it is considered flirting. Why can't people just thank the people offering help instead of accusing them that they are being hit on? They should feel so lucky someone is willing to give them help.

You'll truly never know, will you, #107? ;)

I don't even know. I was trying to be funny, but I don't think I quite got there. Where's my damn coffee? It's too early for me to think this hard!!!!

To me the only reason niceness is rare now is because of stuff like this. So I agree with the people who so say niceness is taken as flirtation nowadays. It's so hard to be nice.

Don't tell girls at work you wanna show them porn on the computer, bad form.

These two replies highlight all the worst types of comments on this site: the ignorance of sarcasm followed by a superfluous correction that does not improve or add to the conversation. I should also include this comment, which in the end, is just useless criticism of others.
