scorpie Posted September 17, 2011 Share Posted September 17, 2011 Ok. I need some advise from a wise gal who's been in tricky office situations. I'm a professional in the medical field and I always get along with all my coworkers. I'm friendly and casual, I don't like to be formal. I started at a new place about 8 months ago and everything was fine. So today I'm just chatting with one of my coworkers (he IS a manager, but he doesn't have authority over me, I report only to the doctor), I'm about to leave so I say "K dude, see you Monday" and then he grabs me and tries to kiss me. I back away and tell him "it's not a good idea, we work together" and run out. Now this guy is pretty aggressive and I'm afraid that come Monday he will start plotting against me and making me look bad in front of our boss, the doctor. I'm planning on just playing it cool...oh boys will be boys...type of attitude, but I really don't know ho to navigate this situation. Can anyone please advise? He's either gonna try this crap again or be resentful toward me for turning him down. How do I protect myself but still maintain a normal working relationship with this jerk? Link to comment
