This week, our winning Oh, Come On winning moment comes via Audrey, who submitted her story via our Look-Solutions Facebook page:
*My worst moment: Being told, “hon get me a coffee” upon entering a meeting full of male consultants. I was the architectural designer in charge of the project, the meeting, and of contacting and inviting the consultants present, including this gem (in other words, he was at my mercy job-wise). I responded by saying that I could ask my administrative assistant if she was available to get him a coffee, or he could visit the coffee machine himself.
Oh, Come On.
Each week, we’ll ask you to provide your own Oh, Come On moment for us to share with the world. Shoot an email to Looking@look-solutions.com with a story you have to tell of a coworker or someone you know in the workforce who did something utterly idiotic. Don’t want to email it? Post your story directly on our Facebook page with the words, “My Oh, Come On moment is.” We’ll then share it in a list in each week’s post (while absolutely honoring your desire for anonymity; tell us if you want your story posted sans names), and at the end of each week, we’ll provide the person who gave us the best Oh, Come On moment with a $10 Starbucks gift card! After all, who doesn’t deserve a few cups of coffee for having put up with workplace idiocy? We all do.
Now it’s your turn! Send us your Oh, Come On moments and next thing you know, you’ll be feeling better, sipping coffee and smiling that you’re not the only one who’s had to deal with one or two ridiculous and absurd workplace situations.
