Receiving a Power Wink from a male co-worker!
In 99.9% of public situations, if one male goes out of his way to wink at another male, its pretty safe to assume, that the man doing the winking would be down to touch penises. But somehow, if you use this widely known pickup move in an office setting, the meaning completely changes. It's supposed to symbolize gratitude and respect towards your fellow co-worker. The only problem, is that it feels really creepy.
The male power wink makes you feel less like you're being praised, and more like you're going to be followed into the men’s bathroom and solicited for homo sex. "Hey, great fourth quarter stats Pablo *Power Wink* ..now lets get naked and sword fight a little bit, you dynamite man you."
I'll be making sure that Human Resources step in on this one and red flag this sneaky daytime eye rape as sexual harassment. I need to have peace of mind that if I wanna go across the office for whatever reason, that I won’t have to Matrix dodge winking bullets from fairy sausages along the way.
What’s next? Blow kisses to show we're going for lunch? Ew.
