  1. Sheesh, anything you may have done that offended someone or made them think twice was intended innocently and is clearly worlds apart from the sexual harassment incidents making the news right now.

    1. I’m sure you are correct. I was merely examining the possible unintended consequences of my self-acknowledged confusing personality.

      That said, the stuff being revealed, from the oh-so-soon-forgotten Trump allegations to the reprehensible concept of child molestation, would make me actually sick.

      And, good gosh, what would my parents think? Come to think of it, what would those men’s parents think?

  2. Jeff,

    Interestingly enough I just had this conversation with my wife this morning. I told her that I couldn’t think of any times at which I had overtly created an uncomfortable situation with a female colleague or co-worker, but I have no doubt that there have probably been instances in which I told a joke that was “not politically correct” in mixed company.

    I too, was raised to be a gentleman by two outstanding parents.

    So yes, this recent spate of accusations has gotten me thinking about my own behavior and while I feel confident that there could have been room for improvement over the years; I was by no means a “bad guy” who made women uncomfortable on a regular basis.

    Thanks for broaching an uncomfortable subject with great introspection and tact.

    1. I’m glad to hear you’ve had the conversation. It doesn’t need to feel like a condemnation to review personal behavior, especially in times where upper level moral leadership seems lacking.

      Remember, we only hear one side of our conversation. Communication is affected by many things, but perception is usually the most inscrutable.
