From the “get a grip department…”
I have several HR colleagues who apparently take offense to these new bracelets being circulated for breast cancer awareness. Those little plastic ones made so popular by Lance Armstrong some time ago…
Only these say “I ‘Heart’ Boobies.”
And some want these banned from the workplace. They say they are unprofessional, and nearly harassing from a sexual perspective.
To that, I simply must say: “REALLY???”
Are we so comfortable that we’ve taken care of all the high-value efforts that should keep us awake for hours on end that we can spend time, emotional energy, and personal credibility on little plastic bracelets, well-intentioned if inaptly applied??
I must say, I believe it’s simply ridiculous.
Take care of the big stuff, and this ain’t one of ’em.
But that’s just me…
