Am I An Insensitive Pig?


So, I posted on another forum I frequent - Has to do with forestry, sawmills and such. So I would not think a group that would get their panties in a bunch easily.


Anyway, I started a thread about flavored coffee syrups by saying.
Quote:
I can't do my coffee black. Women, maybe, but not my coffee.

Well, it got deleted, and I sent a PM about it. Response was
Quote:
I don't think it was appropriate for this forum. I also got quite a few reports to the moderator concerning it.

So, can't anybody take a joke?

Not anymore. PC has taken over.

When I was in the country club business, my bookkeeper, restaurant manager, banquet manager, banquet sales manager and chef were all females. I could tell them a joke, tell them they looked nice, etc...nothing over the line.

Today, I wouldn't dare tell a female that worked with me/for me I liked her dress or her perfume....

It's an old stupid line that I still probably hear once every few months.

Things have changed.

I always tell the girls in the office or at the bank, when they have nice perfume on, that they smell good....

They like the compliment.

Re: Am I An Insensitive Pig?


post was a little inappropriate--- but I wouldn't care.

It's actually more of a concern that you aren't "manly" enough to drink black coffee !

all in good fun,

Who in the hell uses flavored syrups? What happened to powered creamer and sugar? Next your going to tell us that coffee is to hot so you buy the flavored iced coffee with a little extra whip cream? Talk about pansy...

Oh and to answer the question, it's women, women use the flavored syrups, my wife uses about 1/2 and 1/2. 1/2 French vanilla half some flavored coffee out of her kerig thing.

Re: Am I An Insensitive Pig?


Being the only woman on my hockey team, the only woman on my floor at work, and working primarily with contractors (you insensitive pigs), I don't think your joke is offensive.

But I guess I've been desensitized because when I asked my feminist sister she said that it should be offensive to all people, not just women.
