Male coworker to female coworker: Hussy!
(female coworker laughs)
Male coworker: I feel completely comfortable calling you that.
Female coworker: That’s okay. I know you mean it in a good way.
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.
