I went for a drink the other day at my son’s pub. During the course of a conversation, I heard about the new adjustments to the Sex Discrimination Act. I couldn’t believe it at first, but my understanding is that I could be prosecuted (or the landlord could) for calling a barmaid ‘love’ or ‘darling’.
I haven’t seen any clear guidelines.
What happens if I call a barman ‘love’? ... or ‘mate’?
What happens if a barmaid calls me ‘love’?
Harriet Harman appears to be blaming this move on European legislation – but can you imagine how this kind of legislation would go down in France.... ma petite chou-fleur?
I believe I started getting the same feelings last time we had a Labour government for too long – why can’t they let me look after myself?
If one of my son’s customers upset one of his staff, I should think she could handle it – and if she couldn’t, then he would!
Or maybe they should just call the police!
