I know, his demeanor lately is so bizarre. Was he at the G8 summit or a fraternity party? But he's just a good ole Texas boy, bein friendly and all..

He was just trying to make her comfortable, but still, that's weird.

Maybe it's a Texas thing.

"Grope". Since when is massaging someone's shoulder "groping"?

I think it's more of an asshole thing.

It's not like these are two people who know each other really well and are goofing around at a party. If some guy I was just getting to know did that to me - especially in a business setting - I'd give him the withering stare of death.

You can't be serious. You don't give someone a suprise massage in an office meeting to make them comfortable, do you?

About the only person you give a suprise massage is your significant other...

And it's definately not a TX thing, it's a moron thing.

The massage qualifies as sexual harassment where I work.

Huffington makes the grope point repeatedly.

In my work situation, when we're on retreats, there's a certain casualness to the interaction -- massages or quick shoulder rubs are not uncommon when there is massive amounts of stress.

Just so people can see why women still haven't made it as far as we should in this society. Is it any wonder when you have attitudes like this?
