So you're saying telling them to foff is out of the question?

I'd probably put laxatives in there drinks when it was my turn for the bar.

looooooooooool, hey Ash:-D


Hiya Peggy, you having a nice night?

Either ignore them or say; "do you realise that you are always belittling me?"
If they say "no" they will probably apologise and not do it again
If they say "yes" then you reply with "Ok, thanks for that, I just wanted to check with you before I reported you to your supervisor/manager/company director etc"
Either way, make sure you have a witness (a work mate - someone who you know will back you up); failing that, record it on your mobile phone or something.
They will brick themselves and it will end there and then

haha! thing is i think the way they are acting is like i'm one of the lads. its supposed to be a good thing but i never grew up like that so not really used to it. esp being bottom rung of the "gang" just kinda need advice on how to handle the banter but keep on everyones good side.... quite alot of money rests on these relationships


when you are at a bar say 'ohhh davies getting the drinks in, its a kodak moment'

when they come in to the office kid on to be on the phone then hang up and say 'oh that was 1988 on the phone wanting its jacket back'

tell them their face is so rank they look like they been dooking for chips

tell them their so rank their face looks like a stunt mans knee.

it's part of the whole initiation thing. if you survive this you probably will survive the lifestyle you're embarking on - i have confidence you'll be a fine young man! at some point earning respect is not just about doing well at your job but being able to stand your ground. all of us kinda have to go through it and yeah it's a bit annoying but if it gets too out-of-hand and you handle it in a manner that will get respect then you've made it. seriously it's character building and will stand you in good stead.

[COLOR="Red"]Dawg, you said you've played sports but you're not used to banter?

Did you play tennis or something?

When I was 16 I was playing semi-pro football with adults and in training and in the dressing room a lot of the banter was aimed towards me 'cos I was the youngest. After a few weeks I started dishing the banter back and now I am rarely the focus of the jokes.

If they say something to you, say something back. NEVER BACK DOWN otherwise they will think you're weak.

You need wit though, and that's something you either have or you don't. Luckily I'm a witty, quick thinking guy. I'm not sure what I would have done if I wasn't witty.[/COLOR]

well start organising team to events you have an edge over - show off your skills (and personality) and beat them at their own game. i remember we had a really cool guy in our team from pakistan and we're all good mates and all, but the boys sometimes took digs at him/accent thinking they were assimilating. one day he turned around and said at least i know i can beat you lot at cricket! that kinda shut them up LOL and then we all went down to the pub afters, but he earned more respect points. having a good sense of humour is crucial!

nothing wrong with being THE social secretary, just means you can multi task unlike most of the men. and you can thank your mom/dad for your good looks - if they tease you re: girls.

i've always got things to say brah i just bite my tongue cause i dont wanna **** them off cause it will cost me $$$$$$$$$$$ come bonus time.

and no i played rugby, cricket and basketball at school. i was the captain of all three teams and i was captain of intersports for my year each year. thing is i was good and captain so people used to suck up to me so i would keep them on the team/give them the places they wanted to play. plus i was the one that used to dish out the jokes so its a little hard on the receiving end when i feel like i can't say anything back


[COLOR="Red"]How do you know it will cost you billz if you don't try it?

If I was 50+ and earning billz in an office and a new kid came into the office and started dishing out banter I would think 'fair play, this lad is fearless and has a lot of game - he will go far'. However if I was picking on a kid and he didn't bite back I would think 'wow, this kid is weak'.

IMO you should start dishing the banter back and see what their reaction is.[/COLOR]

cant you tamper with their work???

can you pretend their mum is on the phone wanting to know what time they will be in, when the manager is in listening range??

change their screensaver to a porno image when their out to lunch, preferably the opposite of their sexual orientation lol
#18
if all else fails offer them out.........
#19
......or remain a kissass x
#20
how long you been there? might just take time until you're more senior and 'in' with them?

Failing that recommend getting a newer guy in so you can take the p*** out of him instead of you getting it!

Or find something that they're terrible at....and bring them down.... If you're smarter, and quicker, they won't have a chance :)

My advice mate is give it back as good as you get it! That way they will see you as being a strong character and "one of them".

It sounds like they are just jesting with you and trying to feel you out. I'd go as far as saying they are looking / wanting you to dish it back to prove your worth to them. Like when you say you are worried about gaining their support for future promotions and projects etc well if all you do is "defend yourself" or try to laugh it off without a proper comeback then they will only see you as being weak and nobody wants a weak character on their team.

Trust me mate I've been there before. Be strong and dish it back, they will gain more respect for you!
#22
So you can't take a bit of fun? Just read your reply to JFK, you enjoyed dishing it out but don't like receiving it... Hmmz.

Anyway, give as good as you get - Be witty rather than rude. Don't go mad with "Baldy/Gay" etc. I spent the last year working with jokers - It's what keeps you sane!
