COULD THIS BE SEXUAL HARASSMENT OR NOT?

This morning I went to a restaurant to eat and when I walked in, I noticed two men who would clearly be in their forties looking me over; I ignored it, went in and got a seat. Whilst they were eating, they were very loud, talking, eating and laughing at the same damn time.

I just wondering to myself how elderly men could be so loud, they spoke and acted like they own the place. I personally do not like men who are too loud and brash; anyway back to my story.

When they were finally done eating, one of them told the female waiter that he needed a massage on his stomach as the food did not go down well. His other companion laughed. I was shocked. They were obviously enjoying themselves, one even told the waiter, that she should lose her wrapper so he could use the wrapper (a piece of clothing tied around the waist) to wipe his hands.

The waiter then said he shouldn’t worry, that she would bring a mattress so he would lie down and she would massage his stomach well. The man responded by saying, hope no one would be there so she would do a better job.

I couldn’t believe how married men could be making such statements.

I was honestly worried, if I were a wife to any of them, I would feel bad, but then as I was thinking about it, I was like maybe they were just making harmless jokes.

Could their jokes be said to be harmless or it is sexual harassment? What really is sexual harassment? According to an online dictionary, sexual harassment is defined as (typically of a woman) in a workplace, or other professional or social situation, involving the making of unwanted sexual advances or obscene remarks.

Am I taking their actions too far?

I don’t know, so guys, what do you think?
