I'm not much for people touching me. I just never have been.

Sometimes when we are gathered for a meeting, my boss will put his hand on my shoulder or back. Awkward enough, but sometimes he touches my lower back. He is just that way, and it's always been awkward to me, but I know how he means it and it's never 'really' been an issue. I just let it go.


Just a minute ago there was a line crossed. I was walking through the corridor to the restroom, and he was standing one one side of the hall, talking with someone standing on the other side of the hall. So he's on my right side, and there's enough room to walk between the two to round the corner and go to the restrooms. On the way by, he gave me a "good game".

For those who don't know what "good game" is, it's a smack on the butt.

He said something when he did it, but I was too busy not reacting violently to understand it.

I really don't like people touching me.
