Default John Buccigross texts -

I dont know if i am out of the circle on this but it appears putting Buccigross in the same context as Weinstein and the group of others?

Calling someone doll face in a text and that person continues to want to meet you for dinner etc?

Thank goodness for Sadie Hawkins or nobody would get anywhere.


Someone would have to be named Ichiro just to get to first base.

He also sent pictures of himself without his shirt on to a colleague. Don't know where you guys work but that seems way out of line to me. People come to work to earn a living.

Yes and what was the reaction to the text. People do come to work to earn a living but people at work to sometimes meet their future husband/wife at the workplace do they not?


Meeting for lunch is a lot different than meeting for dinner to a lot of people, not everyone but a lot of people. To avoid any inferences, meeting for lunch is a lot different. I know even man to man i wouldnt ask a colleague who i do not know well to meet me for dinner. I would do a lunch first for example.

Men do not wear shirts at the beach, its not like he was not wearing pants. There may be fake excuses by the accuser of the non-contact but it did appear that she was still open to meet him for dinner.

Most companies have internal rules against senior employees engaging in personal relationships with colleagues. Or if a senior employee is in a relationship with a colleague, it would need to be reported. These rules are in place because people in less senior positions could be left to feel like if they don't play along, there will be consequences.

Not to mention Buccigross is married.

Being married/bad marriage/Separated etc doesnt matter. As chris rock said, you are as faithful as your opportunities. There are many solid relationships that dont end in marriage as well. It shouldnt be either you get married or its harrassment.

Well, i dont know if you need to report about having one dinner with someone that never occurred. (as far as we know) How do you define relationship. Plus dont even know if he had to report anything. As you know many doctors have married nurses, many professors have married students, many senior employees have married junior employees etc.. He appeared not to be close as being a direct supervisor, he didnt know her work schedule etc.

I am just going by what the texts that i read.

Most companies do allow for employees do date each other.


I dont see her telling him she has a boyfriend....heck in college i used to ask a girl where the bathroom is at a party and her response was 'i have a boyfriend'

Allow yes, but if you're someone's supervisor or in a senior position over someone else, most companies require that relationship be reported. The reason is that an underling may not feel like there's a choice.

ESPN released the text messages it wanted people to read and withheld texts they didn't want people to read. The point is that this guy is one of the senior most employees at ESPN and he's texting a woman building her career who may not feel like she has a choice but to entertain his texts or else lose her budding career. That's why his texts are problematic. You also can't walk around calling a woman at work doll face or long legs, whether you think she wants that kind of attention or not it's unprofessional.

This sexual harassment and #MeToo crap is dangerous and has gotten way out of hand.

For the record, my fiancee and I met when she was my boss. As long as it's kept professional at work, they didn't care.

Well this is a woman trying to make dinner plans...i dont see many guys trying to make dinner plans with guys in senior positions from the get go. Usually theres a lot of time involved to get to that level of friends. It would seem she is doing a short cut to get to the dinner plan parts. Before you consider asking someone for coffee on a first date you need to report to HR? Many junior position people marry senior position people or have a good mutual consensual time together. I would think if you are not kissing, what is there to report to HR..

if she was trying to meet him a midnight in his hotel room to discuss her career? What is the line...making 8 pm dinner plans with someone you do not know that well seems beyond the line..

I can only go by the the texts i have seen. I hope you are not going by texts you have not seen. Going by the texts is all i am saying is what i am commenting on
