Creep-O

I just have to vent for a minute...

So I'm at work and this guy comes in to talk about becoming a new client. I know he's called a few times cause I recognize the name. Nobody has called him back because he's kinda bossy and creepy and we don't really wanna represent him. So I let Tracie (who sets up new clients) know that he is downstairs. Well, she's swamped today and so I tell the guy it'll be a minute and to have a seat while he waits. He chooses not to sit, which I absolutely hate. For those of you who don't know I work the front desk at a Law Firm and I LOATH when people just watch me work over the counter. We have plenty of chairs to sit in. Anyway, as he's waiting, I think I hear him say, "Is that porn you're looking at?" Now, I don't believe I've quite heard him correctly since my desktop back round looks like this...


all nice and summery but, was almost completely covered by my work's case-input screen that I was working on. I didn't have the internet up or anything. Not even my email inbox. So, I ask him to repeat himself and he just laughs like a creepy mid-30's guy would and I say, "did you seriously just ask me if I was looking at porn?" And he says, "ya. but I was just razzlin' you."

K. SO NOT APPROPRIATE!!! It made me totally awkward and uncomfortable. So, I just got up and left. I really didn't know what else to do. I told my boss I was not answering phones until the perv out front left. She agreed that was alright and when Tracie was done talking to him (before even hearing my story) she comes back and tells us that he made her feel really uncomfortable and doesn't even want to sign him up. Creep-O!!! Keep your comments to yourself!!!

McCall are you looking at porn? *rolling my eyes* I know exactly what kind of guy you're talking about! We used to get tons of creeps at the bank. There were even a few who we had to tell to leave and the bank got a restraint. Very creepy!
