Re: Sexually Harassed by High UPS Driver

I think it's been pointed out ad nauseum to the OP how wrong she is about sexual harassment.
But what bothers me the most is that people seem so focused on pointing out to her how wrong she is that they're completely blowing off the validity of her complaint. Yes, he asked her on a "date" (if you call it a date) and took no for an answer. But exact definition of harassment or not, this driver made a customer feel uncomfortable, to a point where she felt the need to write to the company and let them know. And she's right to feel this way because this driver's behavior was completely inappropriate not to mention indescribably stupid.
The OP isn't asking for the driver to be fired; she's asking for him to be **disciplined**. And you know, if this driver is that boneheaded that he immediately mistakes someone asking his name for interest, and invites them to smoke a blunt with him, then he needs a hell of a lot more than discipline. Frankly, he WAS high if he thought this was perfectly okay.
My hope is that this driver's boss takes him aside and explains how to deliver a package without trying to pick up the ladies with idiotic lines. And if this driver can't understand that basic concept, then maybe he SHOULD be fired.
