    Don't want a workplace lawsuit, so I offer a pretzel. I always keep a container from Costco in my office.

    If I knew her well enough and felt comfortable joking with her about such things I would give her one of those "really" looks, and then just smile.

    I'd have a devious smile on my face and laugh. Then try to shield myself from what ever was thrown at me ;)

    You know where the vendor machine is! I'll show you if you don't.

    Gotta be careful at work. Especially if she was a new employee. And I had no previous banter with her.

    I would say " Are you sure you don't want something sweet " with a devious smile then pull out some candy from my purse !

    We all need something sweet during our busy and stressful day !

    not everything that is said is meant to be sexual ........ geez

    If meant in a rude or less than professional manner I would discipline based on her conduct. If she was new she would be released.

    That said, I could almost be sure 95% it would never happen.

    I also asked MrsDSG just now her response to such - she would remove for her organisation with immediate effect - breach of professional standards and contract.

    Depends who it's said too, someone can only be removed if the boss hears it. Highly unlikely someone would say that to the boss. It could be said as banter between people who do know each other quite well , and no one else would ever hear about it.

    MrsDSG is the boss and the owner :)

    But in a honestly it would not be said in our offices.

    I know, I meant obviously she or any boss would have to hear it first. And not sure anyone would say that to the boss.

    Well maybe not. No one hears everything that goes on though.

    Our services are professional services - so I'm sure it would never happen. What goes on in personal time - each to their own - but in the offices they know exactly the required roles and responsibilities. Even when representing clients in other locations. Clearly defined.

    Professional etiquette comes into play - and such a statement in our environments would be frowned upon. But to sound like a broken record it just would not be said. More likely to hear "I'm now out at XYZ, revert calls to the mobile or hold in reception"

    Based on the services offered we her lots of clients into our offices. Most of our colleagues and partners have personal offices - so very true no CCTV in personal offices for client confidentiality.

    Tell her the local gas station has snacks. Give her a dollar and ask her to get me a payday while she is there
