No we have a new co-worker who has recently joined us who thinks he brings the charm. He does not. He has gotten into the habit of calling his female co-workers babe, darling, gorgeous etc.
I’ve seen this type of behavior on t.v shows before and movies and it’s always a laugh, but now that there is someone actually doing it it’s a tad bit weird and terribly uncharming, especially to the guy who walks around thinking he’s doing you a ‘favour’ with his pap balloon flattery.
It doesn’t give a good impression of you and it makes the female co-workers wince as it gives the impression that someone thinks that’s what you want to hear as a female.
Bottom line, it’s not good and it makes people uncomfortable. Well, I think the only solution to this problem is to do what ol’ Barb Wire did whenever someone called her ‘babe’…..
