The Audacity of HPOA

/blogs/xx_factor/2010/08/10/_2/jcr:content/body/slate_image

I know we are always and forever telling the young ones not to put up controversial images on the Web and never to post anything they may regret later on in life, but this blog post was just too perfect to leave alone. This young woman quit her job, explaining herself only in whiteboard, then e-mailed the images to her entire office.  I’m not sure it’s the best possible way to call out your vile, sexist boss, but it’s incredibly honest and funny and probably resonates with every one of us who ever overheard similarly grotesque remarks ("nice rack") in the workplace and did nothing about it. So Jenny-if that’s your name-thanks for using the whiteboard for good, not evil, and here’s hoping you have a new job immediately. Like you said, something tells me you’ll be just fine. h/t Ann Friedman
