Flirting is good for you

say working women!

From SMH


Most working women in Britain say that flirting is good for their health and confidence and one in 10 has had a fling with her boss, a new survey released Today showed.

The poll of 5,000 working women for the British edition of Top Sante magazine and the private health care organisation BUPA found that three out of four had flirted with a colleague at work, and 28 per cent had had a sexual relationship with him.

A total of 61 per cent believed flirting at work was good for their health and confidence. More than 80 per cent said that if a male co-worker, boss or client made a pass at them, they would feel flattered and laugh it off, while 13 per cent said they would lodge a complaint.

Of the 10 per cent who have had a fling with the boss, only 11 per cent ended up marrying him, although a further 12 per cent were promoted.

One in five of those polled by the magazine said that she would flirt with the boss to boost her job prospects.

However, virtually all the women - nine out of 10 - said they were worn out by the demands of work and home, which they believed was damaging to their health, notably those returning to their jobs after having a child.

They feared their family lives were being driven to "breaking point".

Top Sante editor Juliette Kellow said: "Superwoman type role models aren't at all helpful to ordinary working women with families who don't have an army of people from nannies, personal secretaries and cleaners to support them.

"Working women are heartily sick of these do-it-all role models. It's time for superwoman to be put back in her box."

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
