When you were growing up and were taught how to interact with people, whether it was with a clerk at the store or that annual review with your boss, many of you probably remember your parents’ advice to look someone in the eye. This is a sign of respect and an indicator that you were actively listening or paying attention. Well, if you work at Netflix, you better start that iPhone timer and rudely look away before the clock strikes six seconds. Netflix streams insanity and becomes one of the latest left wing wackos.
That’s right, according to an article in the Sun, a Netflix employee says “Senior staff went to a harassment meeting to learn what is and isn’t appropriate. Looking at anyone longer than five seconds is considered creepy.”
Netflix neither confirmed nor denied these new rules as of Friday June 15th, but they did tell the Independent “We’re proud of the anti-harassment training we offer to our productions. We want every Netflix production to be a safe and respectful working environment. We believe the resources we offer empower people on our sets to speak up, and shouldn’t be trivialized.”
How “safe place” for Netflix, now one of the most successful left-wing-wackos out there. What is happening to common sense? Let’s look at some of the other reported rules according to the same source.
- No looking at anyone for longer than five seconds
- No lingering hugs
- No flirting
- No asking for a colleague’s phone number.
So file this under, lost their minds. If Netflix employees can’t look each other in the eye for more than five seconds, where can they point their menacing gazes? Pick a spot on the wall? Stare at their toes – won’t that be harassment too – toe trolling? The Millennial employees will have a clear advantage since their deficit in social mores keeps them staring at their iPhone while in conversation. Maybe Netflix employees will have to carry around hoods so they can pull the proverbial wool over their eyes in order to conform to another left wing wacko policy.
