Have you ever been the recipient of sarcasm? Unwanted teasing? I’m not necessarily talking about the illegal kind, AKA sexual harassment. Rather, I’m talking about the smart remarks and teasing, poking fun and “just messin’ with ya” kind of stuff. If I don’t laugh or I -gasp- dare to say I don’t think it’s funny, the perp puts it back on me by saying, “Can’t you take a joke?” or “Geez, you don’t have much of a sense of humor.”

I almost had myself convinced that I was the one with the problem. Then I read this article

I’m not saying humor should not be part of the landscape. I’m not saying everyone should be serious all the time. But no one at work should have to put up with teasing, insults, unwanted nick-names, or passive-aggressive comments.
