OH, blessed Lord. What the WHAT??

I just walked in on two of my co-workers, doing....ahem....naughty things.

At work.

In our studio. 

In a quasi-public place.

Look, I have no problem with office romances, and I have no problem with couples who work together who kiss hello or goodbye as they're going through the doors, but FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, keep your damn clothes on at work. Please.

  • Oh god... Ick.
  • Oh my.... Are they really so hot for each other that they can't wait to get home? Or at least some dark bar or something? I mean seriously, at work?

  • They're actually a little younger than I am -- late 20s -- so it's not quite as disgusting as it could be, but still.....I don't want to see my co-workers with their clothes off doing the naughty at work!

  • Ha. I know some of my coworkers has done that. I've never walked in on any of them, thank God.

  • I admit, FI and I utilized his empty office once while we were in college but we knew everyone was gone since it was well past when the office officially closed AND we dead-bolted all the doors. We'd never have the nerve to do anything while we knew people were around, though!

  • Oh. I totally misread at first and thought it was one guy alone, you know...somehow that seems more gross to me (two people is still gross, though). I didn't do the walking in, but one of my former co-workers walked in on another who was beating off to porn. But that's not the worst part. There was an event going on downstairs, and he was the event coordinator!
  • @HisGirl - Sorry you had to see something like that =(


    Although something like this wouldn't bother me at all. That's just me I guess.

  • Good lord, could they really not wait until after work? I'd be super annoyed if I were you. That's incredibly unprofessional. I hope they were at least embarrassed by how inappropriate their behavior was.


  • What did you do/say when you walked in?

    "I'm not a rude bitch.  I'm ten rude bitches in a large coat."

  • @bethsmiles: Apparently they're not really "together." They were together, a year ago, but secretly, because he didn't want it getting out at work. So she dumped him, and has been having a series of unsuccessful relationships/hook-ups/dates/one-night stands (the hook-ups and one-night stands being fueled by alcohol, trying to get over him.

    So lately he's started kissing her at work, making out with her, throwing her up against walls and groping her, so she thinks they're re-kindling something, but isn't sure.

    I just want them to not do it in such a way that I can't do my job. That's all I'm asking.

  • Holy nudity, Batman! I get being hot for a co-worker, been there, done that, bought the elephant, but seriously? Never, ever, EVER at work! I can honestly say that the only time I've ever taken my clothes off at work was when I had a mishap, got stuff all over my shirt, and had to change into a spare so I could soak the first one - which I did in my own personal bathroom off my office. If I hadn't had a bathroom, I would've locked my office door, closed the curtains and done it there...

    I hope you're writing all these incidents down, 'cause they'd make a killer short story collection/series of columns/novella/tv show!

  • It's not the seeing them that bothers me, exactly, it's the doing it in public in our studio where they could get caught, and it's the unprofessionalism. It's also the fact that I needed the one participant so I could do my job, and he wasn't available because he was...ahem...with someone else. Like, if you want to do that, don't do it when you're interfering with other people's ability to do their job, KWIM?

    "Keep your clothes on at work" shouldn't be something you have to tell people...

    *stuck in the box*

    Yeah not being able to do your work because of this is something I would be annoyed about too. Just saying to the bold that it's exciting for people and that is how they get their kicks. Not for everyone and not everyone understands it but that's how they like it and I understand that. Yes it's wrong if they're keeping others from doing their job but I just find it funny they got caught, not wrong, but that's just my opinion *shrugs*

  • Your life seems to be like a movie, I love reading your posts/stories. I am so sorry you had to witness that and being held off on doing your job. Fi is a HR consultant and has been working with stuff like this, although it wouldnt bother me, it is not something i would like to deal with or witness


  • Oh dear Lord. I just... I don't even know.

  • Yeah, it's honestly the fact that they were screwing around (pun intended) and I couldn't do my job, which meant my boss sent me a nagging email.

    I'm not sure yet if I'm going to go to HR. If I do, they'll know I told (I'm the only one who saw) and I like both these coworkers, and have a good relationship with them.

    Gah. Stupid people!
