Did the items come together as a set? Perhaps he's just a clueless male who had a salesgirl pick them out and wrap them for you.

i was thinking the exact same thing, but didn't want to say anything because i didn't want to seem like a weirdo.

@op, you better hope he is a creep and not just being a 'man', if not you're going to feel bad, and things will become awkward really fast, i mean for you, not him. chances are, if he is just clueless, then he won't think twice about you giving it back. you on the other hand, well...you've already made a thread about it

haha, good luck with that

Jesus, why all the drama? Take them to him along with the tight t-shirt and return them.

Be professional and draw the line, telling him it is not appropriate without being aggressive.

You've already photographed the items, make sure you photograph the lable too.

I saw him last night at our Holiday party. I was a bit nervous when he approached me and asked if I liked the gift.

I did what Karen had suggested,laughed it off then swiftly excused myself. He tried coming back around to where I was standing to engage in conversation,even asked if he could get me a refill on my drink,but I kinda ignored him.I can be cold like that.It worked.He didn't really bother me for the rest of the evening.

*I'm going to exchange his gift asap.

Hi Inky..

They were wrapped in the same box but didn't come as a set per se. The panties actually have stickers on them that say, 'I have a matching bra'

I'm pretty sure he's just a creep and not clueless. (see explanation above)

Duly noted,sir.

I intend on exchanging the items as soon as I get the chance.

Naaaah, Sook. Instead, you can neuter his secret Santa fantasy. Every time he approaches you and attempts to strike up a conversation, just play this song and start tooting on a party blowout while doing the Funky Chicken in time with that song .

Trust me, he'll never be able to redact the spectacle from his mind.

Amen.

but, liiiike, Sooki you do know that's fireable, right?

I'm not saying "ruin this fuck's life" because I don't know nearly enough about the situation to make that kind of suggestion casually - I've refrained from posting here for that reason - but it occurs to me just to say "hey: you realize that you can get this guy fired, right?"

just in case

it's like he gave you a box of bullets - or better: a card that reads "if I ever bother you in any way again, redeem this card to watch me led shamefully out of the building with my belongings in a box"

I, for one, would be stoked to get a box of bullets for secret santa.

You should make someone else aware of what is going on just incase it escalates.

I would have returned them to him in front of witnesses if it creeped you out that much.

Anyway, have you exchanged them yet and what did you get?

Sexual harassment poisons morale and hurts the productivity of all involved directly or indirectly. It also exposes the company to the risk of being sued. He might as well be stealing from the till, as far as I'm concerned.

I'm not saying I think it is or isn't - it's definitely a wacky choice of gifts and no one in their right mind would do such a thing without an established flirty sexy friendo-relationship already in place - even then, in the States, the shit is serious and it's worse than just losing your job in many cases.

Guy is saying "I will be treating you like my superior from now on, or I am going down, down" as far as the courts are concerned. There may have been some wiggle room -

but instead, there's that gift box and that printing on the motherfucking glory-floss of all things.

What are some people thinking? It's quizzical. And I'm a disruptive element in the office workplace? Please.

You're only disruptive in the workplace because everybody has money riding on you in the office deadpool. It's kind of like here in that way.
