Fired For Being Too Sexy
I saw this news online; a dental assistant was terminated because she was irresistible and attractive for her boss. Melissa Nelson worked in her boss's dental clinic for 10 years and the problem began when she started wearing tight clothes, her boss got distracted and his wife got jealous of her husband's attraction to an employee. She has become a marriage threat and the wife decided to take action before worse comes to worst. Iowa Supreme Court determined the question to be "whether an employee who has not engaged in flirtatious conduct may be lawfully terminated simply because the boss views the employee as an irresistible attraction."
If you ask me, it is unfair to fire someone just because she's too sexy, attractive or irresistible, not to mention taking that to court, it's just so narrow-minded. But I understand what the wife is trying to do, to save their marriage; Nelson must step out and disappear. The dental assistant should have known better but to cover up and just try not to be sexy if it's a distraction, but one cannot help it if they have the looks or the body and it's human's nature to be attracted physically. The wife should have made an effort to lure the attention of her husband back to her; maybe she's becoming too boring. My suggestion to the wife is why not ask Melissa Nelson how to be irresistible? That would save their marriage even in the long run.
