Does this mean I shouldn't bang Jenna Fischer?

Another worthless insipid story by the sun-sentinel's crack business editor. Do you really think you would see this story in the Wall Street Journal or Investors Business Daily? This is exactly why I canceled my subscription.

I actually met my (ex-) husband on the job. By the time we were dating, though, we had left that position. More recently, I had another office romance. What made it work is that we worked in different offices for different departments while we were dating. Although we broke up in 2005, we are still friendly.

I run the show at my company and only hire good lookin women cause thats how business gets done. Tight short skirts always closes the deal. Fat chicks need not apply. And when business gets done, the girls take care of me. If they dont service me and swallow, then out the door they go. Fat chicks stay home please.

Who needs office relationships when you can have any girl at any time.

the best strategy to hit on a woman at work is to make your move at the office party. This way, if she turns you down, you can always use the 'I was drunk' excuse.

PROBABLY THE ONLY THING GETTING SWALLOWED AROUND YOUR OFFICE IS YOUR PRIDE.

THE ONLY WOMEN I LIKE ARE AS FOLLOWS:

(1) THEY MUST HAVE A BIG RACK.
(2) THEY MUST BE TIGHT.
(3) THEY MUST BE UNDER 120 POUNDS
and at least 5'5.
(4) THEY MUST BE ATTRACTIVE.
(5) THEY MUST BE UNDER 25 YEARS OLD.
(6) THEY MUST NOT HAVE ANY KIDS
sINCE KIDS WILL RUIN YOUR BODY.

99% of women don't meet the above criteria since they aren't good looking.

My sentiments exactly. After reading this story, all I could think was, "Duh." Must have been a REALLY slow news day, coupled with an overzealous editor who wants to play up the Valentine's Day angle. Pathetic when you think of it. The reporter should be ashamed.

Dating among the work place environment is a bad decision-it will have a huge impact on work performance, especially if it's a secret...don't do it!

I met my husband at work and we were very quiet about it for over a year. We would be on the elevator together with a bunch of people and not say a word to each other besides 'hi'. Once everyone knows, then it becomes a problem. Knew other people who dated at work and they always went to lunch together, walked around handnand hand--not good! Just does not look professional. It also gives everyone something to gossip about.
