Hug your boss today, for as shitty as they may be, they have not tried to pull one of your testicles out of your sac, necessitating multiple surgeries and ball-removal.
That Power Point you got asked to put together at the last minute doesn’t look so bad anymore, does it. From The New York Post:
Michael Peacock, 45, endured three surgeries, including the removal of one of his private parts, after he was manhandled during a two-day “team-building” seminar in upstate New York, a lawsuit says.
On July 18, 2012, the workers for the data-security company Iron Mountain Management went barhopping in Kingston and took a cruise on the Hudson to foster camaraderie.
But as the booze flowed, boss Richard Langtry became “increasingly loud and aggressive,” Peacock claims in New Jersey Superior Court papers.
Langtry “drank heavily throughout the day and into the evening,” and then, as the men passed each other outside a restroom, “grabbed [Peacock’s] left testicle, squeezed it hard and pulled it down as if to rip it from his groin,” court papers claim.
Wait. That wasn’t nearly emphatic enough.
Okay. That’s much better.
Peacock’s coworkers were anything but understanding about the incident.
Langtry was fired but, adding insult to injury, Peacock was seen as the villain by some co-workers. They made fun of his disability, calling him a “drag queen” and urging him to “chop the other one off,” according to court papers.
Man. I don’t even think my coworkers would say shit like that, and we are some of the biggest dicks on the internet.
In conclusion, don’t do that to anyone, ever.
