Why do men think it’s acceptable to flirt with women who are just trying to do their jobs?
I’m a nurse and I’m so sick of my patients constantly flirting with me and trying to ask me out on dates. It’s especially disgusting when the patients are old enough to be my father or grandfather.
Like how do they think that’s appropriate? I am a medical professional and want to be treated as such. I don’t want men to comment on my appearance. I’m not here to be anyone’s eye candy. I’m here to do my job.
Unsolicited comments about my appearance are NOT compliments. They are objectifying comments that make me feel sick.
I know it’s not just nurses who experience this. It’s also waitresses, bartenders, or any job that requires women to interact with the clientele.
I wish men would understand that it’s not appropriate to flirt with women who are just trying to do their job. No, that cute waitress is not interested in you.
She’s just nice and friendly because she has to be.
Sorry for the rant, but I’m at work right now, and I just had to politely tell a patient to stop commenting on my appearance because it’s creepy.
He didn’t understand why telling me I’m attractive is creepy. I had to explain to him that I’m a nurse and want to be respected and valued for my hard work and achievements, not something I just happened to be born with that is totally fleeing (i.e. my looks). He still didn’t understand. sighs
