Q: I need some advice and hope you can help. A male co-worker and acquaintance from work (we once dated for a short time) thinks it’s funny when he passes by me to touch or poke my breasts and make a “honking” noise. At first, we laughed it off as a joke and now I am getting very uncomfortable with it.
A: Tell him to “Stop!” and that this is not a joke and is unacceptable behavior in and out of the workplace. Not only can this be reported to your employer, it can also be considered battery and possibly sexual battery. Take reasonable action to protect yourself.
