    I think the Spanish have a phrase for this:
    la sacudida es muy gayo

    Aha, the old sympathy ploy. It's obvious that you were being worked for a heavy romp in the sack and you blew it. A nice card, flowers, and candy might get this back on track. At the very least a few drinks to bring the situation under control and show your sympathetic caring personality. You do cards, don't you?

    Does anyone else get the feeling this will ultimately end with another "answer your phone Mark" thread?

    Not only do I believe it, I think he lost his job months ago and is posting from a friends boat in Freeport where he's been habitating for months whilst he deals with the lawyers and washes his clothes up on Sunrise Hwy next to "teh Immigrants".

    He's the Uncle Rico of JI.

    You should have jumped up on your desk, wearing your assless black jeans and yelled "GRRRRRR! Imma grope-a-saurus rex!" and launched yourself at her, peniz first. Situations like this demand a not subtle response, and should play to your "strengths".

    Slept on it, know how to deal with it. I'm spending the morning watching Old Yeller on the iPad. Once I get a good blubbering weepiness worked up, I'm heading into her office with some made up dilemma and seeing how SHE responds to it.

    Ann Landers rotting corpse delivers better advice than you lot.

    Nice visual!

    Professionally speaking, you did the right thing. You touch her in any way, you will pay for it later, in a bad way. She'll eventually tell people she went to you for advice and that you hugged her, which someone will take as harassment and your days of looking at multiple copies of paper resumes and asking about dinosaurs will be over.

    I did as soon as the thread was started. Nothing gives me blood like a woman's tears.
