Are you anti-PDA?

Have you ever been out in public and noticed a really obnoxious couple who are taking “public displays of affection” too far? A lot of people don’t mind seeing a couple happy and in love. It’s the couples who are in lust, that annoy everyone!

Most days, when I am not all “down will love” I can appreciate seeing two people happy to be with one another. I just think there is a certain line you shouldn’t cross. At some point, you really should go get a room.

Oddly enough, I don’t require a lot of PDA from men I date but I don’t like it when they are completely anti-PDA. Why would you not want to publicly show me affection? Are you afraid of being secretly filmed by the show Cheaters? Then I get all paranoid and start acting irrationally with over the top PDA to prove a point (I know, I have issues).

What is your stance on PDA? Are you for or against it? Have you ever dated someone who was not affectionate enough or was into PDA too much?

Bluz give me your address so I can send you a pacifier and a woobie to keep you company.

I wasn’t trying to come for you so shut that sh.it up. As I’ve said before if you’ve ever re-read any freaking thing with your name next to it, you too, would see…but I digress.

Really,though…

CC – I’m agreeing with most of what has been said here. He needs to handle her and let her know 100% that he’s not available or interested. I think it would be nice for you to go to the birthday party so you can meet her face to face and show her that she’s got nothing on you!

…..and she’s not gonna get to know anyone if she’s spending all her time calling/texting Mr. Cents. She better join Events and Adventures and KIM…..

EXACTLY!

He said that he doesn’t want to engage in the “Stop calling/texting me” thing because she is his subordinate and he doesn’t want to create an acrimonious work environment. Also she is a good employee in a position where he has struggled to keep a good employee. He very seldom responds to her texts and the only way I know she has been texting/calling is because he tells me and shows me the texts. (I don’t do the phone snooping thing. Too much damn work for no return)

MsAtl~ You can just be my alibi then… :lol:

Officer: Where were you on the night of Oct 20, 2012?
Me: I was with MsAtl helping her do trial prep for a difficult case
Officer: MsAtl, can you verify her whereabouts?
MsAtl: Hell naw! I worked to hard to get here to get caught up with that murderous heifer! :lol:

Too bad he can’t *un-give* her his phone number.

But really, he can just tell her that she is contacting him away from work just a bit too often and that it’s making him uncomfortable and he doesn’t want anything to happen that can be taken the wrong way.

So, now I must start thinking about what to wear to the party. Dress or pants? Dress is sexy but pants say control… Hmmmm.

MsAtl~ I hate depositions so no can do. I think that has got to be one of the most boring parts of the job. I worked in PI for a few, and that was the part of the job I liked the least. That and the bates stamping. Ughhh… When I first got out of school, that seriously made me question my decision to go into law. :lol:

Dress says more control because you have a dress on. Pants allows you to let loose once common sense has left your body!

Actually, now that you mention that she is subordinate to him, I would say not to go to the party. It would only contribute to continued blurring of the line between business and professional.

He should just let her know that he can’t because he and his wife have something to do that night.

I don’t do anything personal with my employees. I’ve been hesitant to show them any of my wedding photos, even though they keep asking.

I choose not to socialize outside of work related functions with anyone that I have to supervise.

I thought long and hard about whether I would go to an employee sponsored picnic this weekend. I’ve decided that I will go, for a short period of time, wearing a company shirt and driving the company truck.

As a serious response to your question Comon, I agree w/ SexyC. He should just tell her he can’t make it because the two of you already have plans. And as for the calls/texts, just don’t respond. If it’s work-related, it can wait until they’re at work. If it’s not, then there’s no need to respond.

IDK. I will keep you all in the loop. I told told the hubs I would call him in between work and the class I have to teach tonight, so I will post the verdict tomorrow. But, I think I agree with Leggs that if I’m going, I’m wearing a dress. Hell, I might even take swiss’ suggestion and engage in some PDA with the hubs…

You forgot the original tribe…the C.A.B.Q.(cut a bi.tch quick) tribe…. The Black Mamba(she’s not with us right now) started it a long time ago. I was on the committee…for some odd reason ;-)

Comon- I think you should back off a bit. Right now your hubby has not given you any reason NOT to trust him or his judgement. You let it be known how you felt. He obviously has no ulterior motives since he told you all about it and let you see the texts. Don’t make a non issue into an issue.

Comon Cents

When he first brought her up, my question was why the Hell would you move to a state where you don’t know anybody?!? It’s not like she has some great paying job. She’s a prep cook. Ok dough, but not worth moving from Chicago to Atlanta for. And she didn’t have the job before she moved here. Apparently, she applied after she got here. Mr. Cents looked at me like I was crazy! :lol: He said “I don’t know all that. I try to talk about personal stuff as little as possible with her!” :lol:

I know the way I like to party, and my co-workers will never be privy to that. She shouldn’t want to party with a bunch of her coworkers. How long has she been on the job, Comon?
