Who's managed to…
Sleep with a colleague and survive?
A boast thread in juxtaposition to the other current thread about getting busted. Or just inappropriate touching if you deem it adequate…Posted 4 years ago
I.Posted 4 years ago
Ended up married to a colleague – does that count as surviving? 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Only in my younger days.Posted 4 years ago
Yep, when I first left school I worked in a call centre, shit, shit job but excellent social life and lots of people aged 18 to early 20s who drank, clubbed and bumped uglies with each other most weekends.
In fact I lost my virginity to a colleague a few years earlier when I worked part-time in a supermarket. No law suits yet!Posted 4 years ago
I slept in the same bed as a female colleague once but I’m sure that isn’t what you meant. I have absolutely no idea where that appears on the current scale of things and I had only met her that day.Posted 4 years ago
Proper full on body rubs and groping during the heady days of clubbing, but 500 people rammed into Fabric at 3am means someone over there is going to come over to you at some point and jiggle and wiggle provocatively in your face…
Male or Female.
Not at work though, but my Boss did marry his secretary.Posted 4 years ago

No but could be considered a cruel and unusual punishment.Posted 4 years ago
YesPosted 4 years ago
Don’t dip your pen in company ink. I was told this 40 years ago and it’s advice I’ve heeded.
When it goes tits up, and it usually does, they nearly always side with the womanPosted 4 years ago
Sleep with a colleague and survive?
Yes, on a regular basis for the nearly three years we were together, and I guess having sex in the front seat of my Morris Minor also counts as ‘sleeping’ together…Posted 4 years ago
Yes. Several times. Several different jobs.
Ended up living with one.Posted 4 years ago
Junior colleague, yes.
Same level colleague, yes. more than once[/edit] [2nd edit] several more than once and I’m going to stop thinking about it [/2nd edit]

I was a 19 year old IT monkey in a call centre of 18-25 year old girls in the city.
I’d been asked to monitor all the emails from the call centre staff by the MD, so mostly monitored for any positive mentions of me. Good times.Posted 4 years ago

What constitutes “survival”?Posted 4 years ago
No idea ..consensual sex ?Posted 4 years ago
Yes but it was a stupid idea every timePosted 4 years ago
Survival would probably be coming out of it still with both of you employed and no harassment claims in the pipeline.Posted 4 years ago
Yeah, survived. Nearly got caught on the boardroom table though.Posted 4 years ago
Nope. And if you’d worked where i’ve worked, you’d understand 😉Posted 4 years ago

Used to be a truck driver .. one shop always took longer to unload 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Worked with a girl many years ago who’s nickname was BJ… Took full advantage of thatPosted 4 years ago
Does it count if the action happened before you were colleagues? I survived, but 4 years later when I started my first grad job, the dawning realisation and ensuing embarrassment of how I knew my fellow grad from somewhere damn near killed me.Posted 4 years ago

I was told this 40 years agoI was told this and it’s advice I’ve heededignored then learnt the hard way.
When it goes tits up, and it usually does, they nearly always side with the woman
Had a few part-time jobs when I was younger and tried to make a go of one of them (not saying where as the young lady in question’s dad is on here!!). Moved to another office to do some management training and met a young lady (she was 17 and stunning) there who was the Saturday worker. Everyone was after her except me, didn’t really like the people there so just kept my head down and got my 6 month placement over and done with. On the last week I was there we had a party as we’d met bonus target, just a night out at the local pub. Once the food had been eaten most of the staff went on to a nightclub in town and it was just me and the Saturday girl left so I gave her a lift home. As we pulled up at her place she jumped on me and I didn’t resist (did I mention she was stunning 😉 ). Seeing as I was leaving that office I thought ‘what the hell’ and we started a relationship that lasted 6 months.
This was until she decided to cheat on me with the new trainee at her office. Things got a little messy personally and professionally (to say the least!) during the beak-up with people in her office taking her side and it lead to my path into higher management being blocked by one of her colleagues a year later as it meant working with her and the new trainee again. No other options for me to explore and once I’d had a path blocked I was overlooked for everything. Someone started spreading seriously nasty rumours about me shortly after (later found out it was her new partner, the one she’d cheated on me with) so I left the company and moved on to a job I absolutely hated.
Saw her about 6 years later and she tried to be all nice and pally with me, as if nothing had happened. She’d gone from the person I liked the most to the one I hated the most.
I’ve never ‘dipped in the company ink’ since despite a few opportunities.Posted 4 years ago
I slept in the same bed as a female colleague once
I’ve done that too. But not at the same time.Posted 4 years ago
Never been tempted. There’s no female prison officers in my age range I’d go near even if the continuation of humanity depended on it!
