    Dirty jokes at work.

    Advertisements
    I went to bank of america yesterday to get a cashier's check. When the lady went to go and print out my check she was talking to a coworker and she goes,

    Why aren't there anymore cookouts on brokeback mountain? Because the weenies tasted like crap.

    I just thought it was kind of rude to say something like that where others, especially guests, could hear what she was saying.

    Opinions?

    That situation seems inappropriate. Telling dirty jokes at work depends on your audience and your work environment. They get told a LOT here where I work, but we have no outsiders wandering in, and we know that we all don't mind.

    I REALLY don't like it when workers are unprofessional in front of me, a customer. I don't care if they're talking about their plans the night before, what movie they went to see, or dirty jokes.

    Please be professional. I'm not there to listen to all of that foolishness.

    ITA If she wants to tell that joke to someone she knows is of a similar mind in the lunch room, more power to her. I would have been really offended and would have said something had I overheard that.

    From a legal standpoint, I would NEVER say something like that at work.

    Plus, it's annoying.

    WOW. It's okay if they're in the office and no one can hear them, but when they're in front of customers? NO BUENO.

    I probably would've complained. At least told her I didn't like it, if not a manager also. After working in customer service for YEARS that kind-of shit gets under my skin.
