Hydro One is wrong

Sometimes very late at night, unable to sleep, usually full of self pity and scotch, to the point that I can no longer follow the storyline on any of the Netflix series I am following, I find myself aimlessly wandering through the time killing sites, the latest move clip sites, unblocked Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman episodes and finally before I pass out, news bloopers.

I find  the gaffes, miscues, asking Mike Tyson if his rape convictions might hurt Rob Ford’s chances for reelection and then being surprised at the response, hilarious, but what I don’t understand are the clips of some asshole running up to some reporter to shout some obscenity. It is not a blooper, it is not funny, it is just crude, juvenile profanity for which the perpetrator and their actions should shunned, not heralded.

So when the CITY TV reporter went after the bystanders that were egging on one of their friends to shout an obscenity into her microphone at a soccer game, she was doing us all a favour and by filming and posting their failed attempt to justify their laughing at the incident, she thoroughly embarrassed both individuals.

However the crude juvenile actions of these two individuals in responding to the reporter was not sexual harassment and definitely not harassment in the workplace and does not warrant being fired by their employer.

Hydro One has overstepped and none us should be supporting their action and if you have a problem with that, take it up with Fern Hill at Dammit Janet.
