Today's social dilemma came from an email I received from Lexie. It's about a work situation and it's something we all may have experienced. Here's the email: Hi Jaime, my name is Lexie, and I had something happen at a work meeting the other day and it's left me feeling uncomfortable. I am really hoping you can use this for your social dilemma so I can find out if my instincts are betraying me. In my work, I often have meetings at other offices who are partners with our office. I was at one of those meetings recently with several people I knew and a couple of people I didn't know. One of the men I didn't know came up to me after the meeting (we were discussing very important issues), and said to me, "I'm sorry but while you were talking, all I could think about was how beautiful you are." I was taken aback by it. I am in those meetings as a professional and to have that colleague say that to me left me feeling uncomfortable and not taken seriously. When I spoke about it with other people in my office, some agreed with me and understood my feelings while others said I was being too sensitive. I wanted to ask what you and everyone thinks. I still think it was wrong for him to say that. I really hope I can get some insight from your listeners Jaime. Thank you so much ~ Lexie Well, I have to say that I think Lexie should follow her instincts. I think it's wildly inappropriate for a man to say that, especially if it's someone you don't even know. You didn't meet him in a bar, you're in a work setting, but that's just my opinion. I look forward to hearing what you think. Please let me know on the TRY Facebook page. Let's help Lexie out.
