Fury as man blames woman for ‘misleading’ him by not wearing wedding ring

There’s a time and a place for flirting—and a lot of places where it’s a really bad idea. In front of your partner, over a customer’s coffee cup or when they’re dating your friend, just a few things come to mind.

“Don’t date coworkers” is conventional wisdom for a reason, because although it may be right, it often goes horribly wrong. And if you’re repeatedly texting a coworker who isn’t interested, it’s not romantic—it’s sexual harassment.

A man on Reddit was slammed for tormenting his new co-worker when he told his story on AmItheA**hole? Forum.

The woman explained that she was sexually harassed by a male co-worker, who refused to believe that she was married, no matter how many times he had turned her down. That is, until her husband joins…

The post has since received nearly 23,000 upvotes and more than 3,000 comments from Reddit users upset by her coworker’s behavior.

She wrote: “I recently started working at a company F30. I get along with most of my coworkers, but there are some problems with this guy “Morgan”.

“Morgan what I understand is what everybody says[s] The ‘pretty’ guy in the office. He dated 2 of his co-workers and hit on several other guys.

“He offered to buy me lunch and the internet and kept sending me funny memes and stuff. It was nice but felt a bit much so I told him to stop and he did.”

Although the poster told Morgan to stop flirting with her, he began sending her inappropriate photos and accusing her of lying about her marital status in order to stop her.

She continued: “She texted me saying I was lying about being married to get her off my back, then told her how nice and attractive she was, and how I was trying to act.” I’m like I don’t like him. Try more.

“I was feeling disappointed [especially] after sending it[n]Hey pictures of me A few days ago he sent me the ad *** pic and told me ‘suck it up.'”

After Morgan refuses to take the hint and continues to harass Throwaway Co79, her husband decides to send her a message.

She said: “I decided to let my husband deal with it. He sent him a text back saying ‘Sorry Bud, small objects pose a hazard to him’. Then blocked him.”

In response to a snappy return from her husband, Morgan confronted a Redditor at work, accusing him of misleading her.

She explained: “The other day he came into the office looking angrily and ‘confronted’ me about not having a wedding ring when I got married.

“I said I didn’t need to prove anything to anyone or lead anyone. He said he was trying to get closer to me and I should have told him I was married from the beginning.

“I said I’m sorry, but maybe they basically shouldn’t have tried to hook up with anyone, regardless of whether they were in a relationship or not.

“He said my husband and I were being rude and aggressive, then freaked out.”

According to NPR, 38 percent of women experienced sexual harassment at the workplace, while 77% reported being verbally abused and 51% of women being touched without their permission. research by Harvard Business Review It shows that more than half of women who are harassed at work do not report it to HR mainly out of fear of retaliation.

Surprisingly, Throwaway Co79 colleagues were divided on the issue.

She continued: “Other coworkers said Morgan was a ******, but I’m to blame too [not] Wearing my wedding ring and something confusing.

“I said I didn’t think I had to explain to anyone and refused to apologize for what happened in order to keep the peace in the office.”

Despite the dismissive attitude of his coworkers, Reddit users were shocked by Morgan’s actions and encouraged him to report them to Human Resources.

Fire_goddess11 suggested “bringing that d*** picture to HR immediately.”

UsernameTaken93456 agreed, commenting: “He’s sexually harassing you at the workplace, and the excuse that ‘I wouldn’t bother you if I knew your vagina was claimed by a different man’ is disgusting.”

Cacciolo said: “Ring or no ring this dude needs to learn, which makes no sense.”

Throwawayco79 explained that she doesn’t wear the ring because of skin problems, but as several Redditors have pointed out, she doesn’t have to explain herself or wear it if she doesn’t want to.

normal-height-8577 said, “Her being married is almost irrelevant, except that she is placing so much importance on being related to another guy.”

“The truth is, married or not, he should have pulled back from the moment he was asked to return. End of story.”

Many users were surprised that Morgan hasn’t already been reported to HR for her behavior, and reprimanded Throwaway Co79’s colleagues for not supporting her.

Evenon commented: “Go to HR about that, as well as any coworkers who inevitably blame you.”

Wildflower said: “He’s done this to a lot of women, and obviously everyone else in this workplace is just too unprofessional to understand the problem.”
