Two things

| 7 comments

Yesterday, during a training on sexual harassment we learned that sexual harassment is wrong. I'm always confused by these training because who are the people who think the examples presented are normal? And how did they get hired in the first place? But, for a brief moment I thought the training was going to be a little more interesting. One powerpoint slide had a list of "stages" of harassment. At the highest level was the bulleted point "evident personnel action (e.g. discharge)". When I first glanced at it, though, I read personal, not personnel. Now, that would be pretty serious, wouldn't it?

The second thing comes from my institute class. I do believe that, for the first time ever in my church-going career, the phrase "dilating and effacing of the opening of the womb" was employed and, even better, as a symbol for the end of the world. It was charming, really.

Speaking of "personal action" and "discharge", have you read the current opinion column on theonion.com entitled "It's Not Easy Being A Frotteur"? It's pretty good. My favorite line: "Gone is the golden age of frottage."

Hm. That Onion article really rubbed me the wrong way.

that just about beats the sunday we heard the phrase, "and then came the episiotomy" spoken from the pulpit.

fast and testimony meeting, of course.

Did they make you watch the stupid videos? Don't you think they would have been better with cool music in the background? maybe some voice overs by that dead chick on Desperate Housewives?

No, no cheesy movies, which really would have improved it, actually.
