By bad timing - United States - Monterey Park


Today, at work, my manager accidentally bumped into me, brushing my behind with the back of his hand. He was a bit embarrassed, so I jokingly said, “You could at least buy me dinner first!” He went to HR and told them I made him uncomfortable. I was just trying to lighten the mood. FML

It's so sad that you're right. In this day and age so many people get upset about the most trivial reasons and think being offended gives them some additional rights.

He can’t lighten up. If she’d gone to HR first (obviously she’s not that kind of person, but they do exist and in droves) he very quickly would be fighting for his job. This is life now, you can’t offend ANYONE, even unintentionally.

Sad to say, but I don’t blame him for doing what he did.

Tell HR that he did it on purpose, and grabbed your behind. It made YOU feel uncomfortable, and as a defense tactic you tried to make a joke to make the situation less tense.
