“Macho does not prove mucho.” – Zsa Zsa Gabor
Open For Business
Employers are constantly trying to find ways to maximize productivity, decrease labor turnover, and optimize job satisfaction. Well, at least that is what a GOOD employer will do. Bad employers will focus on the first part of the equation without realizing that all three of these areas overlap and affect one another.
Some companies will go so far as to study human behavior and implement findings to create an ideal work environment. An example of such tactics is the ever-popular “open space” office set-up.
The concept behind open offices stemmed from the belief that, when humans aren’t corralled and isolated into cubicles or offices, employee interaction will improve exponentially, creating stronger work ethic and job satisfaction.
But this recent Harvard study found the exact opposite happens, and here is why.
When it comes to dating, we all have “preferences,” and then we have “hell-to-the-f’ing-nopes.” One set of standards usually has some wiggle room; the other ones might as well be written in cement then embalmed, that’s how unyielding they are.
Preferences usually involve things like height or race or age – you definitely have a type, but if someone amazing came along that didn’t quite live up to your ideals, it wouldn’t be a deal-breaker.
Hell-to-the-f’ing-nopes (or HTFNs) are glaring red flags that you’ve probably established through past experiences. Examples of HTFNs would be when a guy lists “entrepreneur” as their career on a dating app but has never actually owned anything in his life (he’s unemployed). Or when a woman uses that Marilyn Monroe quote about not deserving her at her best (she’s batshit crazy.)
Essentially, HTFNs are a composite of skeletal remains we gathered from the boneyards of our PAST relationships used to weed out drama in FUTURE relationships.
Here, 24 men dish on which red flags they refuse to ignore when it comes to the opposite sex.
