Coffee with Isa and sexual harassment

Today’s coffee is a little more thought provoking and serious. But also something many of us, especially women relate to. However never let it be said men don’t suffer this as well as they do.

If you’re being harassed at work

Sexual harassment can include:

Sexual comments or jokes

Physical behaviour, including unwelcome sexual advances, touching and various forms of sexual assault

Displaying pictures, photos or drawings of a sexual nature

Sending emails with a sexual content

If you’re being sexually harassed by someone you work with, you should:

Tell your manager – put it in writing and keep a copy of the letter or email

Talk to your HR team or trade union – they’ll be able to give you advice

Collect evidence – keep a diary recording all of the times you’ve been harassed

In the U.K. under the 2010 Equality Act, sexual harassment is illegal.

ROUTE 66

Friday. Need I say it!

I’m more than thrilled to know there will be 48 hours of frivolity to come.

I haven’t much to say today, mainly because I’m lacking time and enroute to an investigation hearing I’m representing in RL for someone.

The video will tell you more. Loving this destination too!

Dream with me

I believe I’m still asleep right now.

This is all just a dream this getting up and going to work malarkey.

I believe in a campaign for a four day working week and a 3 day weekend. Or maybe just the other way around?

Who decided on a 5 day week and got that wish. I want to meet this bright spark and have a conversation.

I want them to run me through this decision and how they reached it.

What did they consider in this thought process which lead to the majority of the work force wishing Friday would come.

It’s only Thursday and I’m watching the clock tick till Friday 4pm.

I will be out those doors like a stealth ninja, faster than you can say toodles.

Coffee in Baskinta

Usually on my bus trip to work I’m chilled and earphones in ears listening to some music.

Today not quite so. Being far from chilled is how anyone who knows me may see me.

It started with a wonderful nights sleep to waking up to remember that I had fasting bloods and another ECG booked this morning. So no breakfast.

But half hour before I’m due to leave I get a phone call to say they have to cancel those tests and book them in for tomorrow due to the nurse who does the ECG going into minor surgery this morning.

So I’m rebooked for 11.20am tomorrow.

Again having to fast all night and wait till around lunch tomorrow to let anything pass my lips.

Unfortunately I’m a nauseous faster and as I sit here right now on the bus I frankly want to heave.

On top of that, I left my earphones at home!

That aside…….

Today’s coffee is slightly different in that although I’m still yakking away about anything and nothing. I’m also showing you this sim.

Feel free to turn the sound down if you wish, just admire this LEA 11 sim.

Yesterday I arrived home from work basically in tears.

Office bullies are my greatest despise.

They come in all shapes and guises and you least expect it when it happens to you.

I didn’t expect to overhear the discussions whispered at high volume or notice the interrogation of my work by someone who is famously and I mean famously incompetent. But I did.

It hurt.

You see two of the people involved both are highly unprofessional women who have major flaws in the workplace.

One for being basically paid a high wage and not doing her job properly for the last 5 years and the other for her poor behaviour in the office regarding her colleagues and the way she can treat them. Add to that open gossip about other team members in an open plan office.

Back to the first women. She has been protected from disciplinary action from two line manages because of her friendship with the grandparent manager.

If she hadn’t had that protection she would have been out of a job at the very least 3 years ago.

The other is simply great at her actress skills when line management are about.

So yesterday I was in the fire line for their toxic collaboration. It felt awful and today I’m unsure how I feel.

Suffice to say I am not one to tolerate being bullied. That is why I became a union rep in the first place.

Bullies have no right to be in any workplace, school or social environment.

So anyhow I went home and decided to immerse myself in something else.

Another attempt at decor.

Thank you to Raindale for letting me use your land to film.

Seriously!

Sometimes I have really nothing to say.

Today is one of them.

Apart from:-

1. I’m absolutely shattered

2. I barely visited SL the last two days

3. I’m uber stressed all over again

4. I’m wishing for a white Christmas

5. RL work is the reason I’m stressed and unfortunately nothing any of us can do about it.

5. Bondi wakes me at 4 am every single day, so who needs a clock.

6. I have nothing left to say.

Ok no I tell a lie, I need to let you know it’s Friday and I shall be leaping out of bed shortly with excitement, to dash to work because, later today it’s the start of the weekend.

The dress is a free gift for the group at Entice Makeover room.

Well worth a teleport. It’s the one with thigh high cleavage!

So there!!!

I'm off work for two weeks!!!

I've woken up today and was just about to start doing my routine of clothes washing for the week ahead, ironing etc and remembered. I'm off for two weeks!

Usually I only ever take around 5 days off work at any one time because the build up of work while I'm off does basically stress me out.

This time I've decided actually is it my problem the work builds up? Is it fair that they don't have a system that takes into account our rights to take annual leave. No.

So if the work builds up, when I return I will say hey "why wasn't this done and why did you expect me to do it while on leave".

I've been employed at this place 13 years and the only times I've had two weeks off are when I had to fly back to Australia in 2010 and 2012 for my parents funerals.

So in essence I've never really had a good long break ever.

So this will make a great change for me.

Who knows, I may go crazy and do it more often!

Now this outfit. Actually does have a hud which I haven't shown you in this video because, well because you will see why.

I felt like a good belly dance…..
