Male cowork­er to fe­male cowork­er: Hussy!
(fe­male cowork­er laughs)
Male cowork­er: I feel com­plete­ly com­fort­able call­ing you that.

Male cowork­er: Would it both­er you more if some­one called you a hussy or a har­lot?
Fe­male cowork­er: De­pends on if they meant it in a bad way or not. But I think “hussy” sounds a lit­tle worse. There’s a right­eous har­lot men­tioned in the bible. There are no right­eous hussies in the bible.

What’s Wrong With the Pub­lic Schools, Ex­plained

School prin­ci­pal, dur­ing on­line meet­ing on in­terof­fice com­mu­ni­ca­tions: Is the tele­phone con­sid­ered non-ver­bal com­mu­ni­ca­tion?
