I’ve joked since that I felt like I had to say yes because I was afraid she would fire me.We ended up going out on a date, and seriously at 17 I knew I was going to marry him.Picture a conference room with a huge center table and a movie-size screen on one wall.The video system was set to turn on automatically each week at the appropriate time.Every week we had a global video conference involving all the regional teams (North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe, Australia).The managing director of each region was required to be the lead for their region. Here are some amazing stories about workplace romance that commenters shared in years past.
As the MD and regional CIO scrambled off the table and out the door, I saw things I will never unsee. This is perfect for a movie I met my husband at work 6 years ago. At the time we were case managers for homeless and runaway youth, and the youth loved us but knew we disliked each other.
Very loud consensual adult activity on the very large conference table.
It would have been way past normal business hours where they were located, so unlikely anyone else was in the building to hear them.
Both were immediately fired and I didn’t keep up with them. Well, long story short, a youth suggested I hang out with him after work to see how nice he really was.
