  • If I were a woman, I'd say two words "sexual harassment"
  • Well honestly it depended on what my job was. If I was a receptionist or something else that represented my company to the public, I would do it.
  • If I was Front of house and representing the company I would consider it to be a part of my job.
  • tell him to put on make Up
  • That would be pretty sexist, and maybe grounds for legal action, so I would gently hint along those lines, if I was female.
  • I would say, boss if i put on anymore make-up you're going to get arrested for running an establishment for prostitution, but if your game so am I. Your make-up or mine boss?
  • Its none of his business...
  • I think the only time when I would be happy with that comment would be if I was a model preparing for a photo shoot. In all other cases, I would be offended, as it is my preference how I look. As the boss has employed me for my skills and not my looks, I would not consider it appropriate in any way to be told to put on more make up.
  • I'd ask my boss if he wore make-up for the customers. :-D
  • LOL...what line of work would this be in? I'd laugh if my boss ever said that. Does your boss require the men to "wear more make-up" as well? If not, then he/she shouldn't be asking you to.
  • That he/she didn't hire me for my looks, he/she hired me because of what I know, and because I do the job well. Therefore the customers will learn to appreciate what I bring to the table, just like my boss has from the start.
  • well, i would question his/her judgement if s/he wanted me to wear makeup since i'm a man. :)
  • I'd be sending out my resume...but, then, again, I'm a guy...and I don't need any more make up than I have on now!
  • that is sexual harassment
  • being an ugly guy I would not have a job where my looks were important... however most jobs where you deal with customers looks matter. if you are in a job where tips occur then you benefit from looking better. unless wearing makeup was part of your employment contract then he is overstepping his bounds. but it is NOT sexual harassment as some might think.
  • wow what bussiness are u in? unless the business needs u to be "pretty" then i would think that is unfair and discrimation.
  • I'd tell him that the customers would rather put on their own makeup. ;)
  • I would ask the boss to pick me up some make-up because I don't wear any.
  • I guess that would depend on what business you are in.
  • I would quietly seek legal advice and keep a record just in case this sort of behaviour continues. Perhaps you should send yourself an e mail everytime something like this happens and that way, you will be able to prove the date of your record. Hopefully, this is an isolated incident and it will not happen again, but be sure to keep a record for legal reasons just in case it does not. Be sure to use your own e mail at home after work if possible so that your information remains private.If you have a computer at work, your boss might have access to it.
  • do you think I'm a call girl?
  • I'd tell that son of a bitch that he'd better buy me a nice dinner. And not Burger King, like last time. And would it kill him to compliment me once in a while?
  • i would say no thanks i am not that kind of guy
  • Ask him exactly how much is enough, and please show you where it says that in your job description. Also point out that if that is a requirement of your job, you will expect a "make up allowance" to be included in your check.
  • Boss, I need your full legal name please, so when I file a lawsuit for sexual harassment, I'll get it to the right person.
  • well i already wear make up at work, why wear more? i dont wanna look like a clown ..unless that job is the circus??
  • i'd understand if you were working as a clown, a uh, "lady of the night" or an actress. i have a solution for you though! be a total rocker-chick and wear sunglasses and hot pink lipstick while at work ;) or wear black eyeshadow and red eyeliner. your boss did not specify what kind of makeup, right?
  • go as that shrek girl or smurfette and put full-body makeup :D do you think that would be "enough" makeup then?! or let him hire a makeup artist to "make" you "up" every morning (or whenever you work!) btw, what is your job anyway, if you don't mind me asking?
  • I would tell him to go do something that is physically impossible to do....for most people.
  • Considering that I'm a guy, I would really find that odd ;)
  • I'd be pissed and I think it must be a sexist remark so, I'd get him for it.
  • I would look him directly in the eyes and ask,"What makes you think that is an appropriate request?". He would know from tone and facial expression that he was out of line. I doubt he'd have the guts to do it again.
  • Firstly, if the boss told you to on more make-up for the customers, then I will certainly do it. I don't see anything negative factors by doing this unless you're a guy. Furthermore, sometimes if you show loyalty to your boss and apply what the best asks you to do; you may get a pay rise. Therefore, listen to your boss and you'll get promoted.
