"He Won't Leave My Inbox Alone"
SAUCY ACCOUNTANT EMAIL AGONY
Can you help?
I am 20, attractive, and work in Marketing.
Two weeks ago I started receiving e-mails from an older man in the Finance department.
At first these seemed innocent enough but now I dread opening my inbox....
The e-mails are becoming increasingly saucy and smutty. I think he’s using his experience to try and seduce me.
Is it really normal to use words such as ‘market PENETRATION’, customer ‘PROPOSITION’, ‘PROCEDURES manual’, ‘SARBOX’ and ‘DOUBLE-ENTRY’ ? I think not.
I decided to confront him. He’s 40, but attractive, and I could not stop blushing. It was awful.
He brushed it off saying it was just part of our working relationship and that I needn’t worry.
But I’m suspicious and the e-mails have continued.
I feel dirty and used, but, strangely, excited.
What should I do?
