Business Insider ^ | June 2, 2010 | Courtney Comstock

Posted on 06/02/2010 5:09:25 AM PDT by Pearls Before Swine

Extract: Debrahlee Lorenzana is filing a lawsuit against Citibank because they fired her, she says, for the strangest reason: she's too hot.

....Her bosses told her that "as a result of the shape of her figure, such clothes were purportedly 'too distracting' for her male colleagues and supervisors to bear," she says

If they had done this to an unattractive woman, there would be more press coverage.

She is absolutely guilty of being too hot. But, I would have given her a promotion and a huge rise, in pay of course.

Attractive but not "smokin hot"

Love this comment:

Latina chicks are all out of their minds. They should have seen this coming.

a) She is not exactly "smoking hot" b) Puerto Rican chicks dress like total whores. THAT was the distracting part, I'm sure. Her face is so so.

Oh yeah - she would definitely distract me.

Fortunately I would be above any behavior that would get me in trouble, so she can work next to me any day.

I saw her picture at the URL. She's not THAT good looking. She doesn't need a paper bag over her head, but she's not exactly a head turner either.

Our local 8AM news broadcast brought up how “bigger breasts mean bigger tips” - the recent Cornell U. study.

One of the gals at my local watering hole would definitely fit description for the high side of the curve. I was thinking that I ought to ask her next time I am there about her (and her co-workers’) experience (good ice breaker if nothing else.. lol).

This gal looks quite similar.

Cute, but not hot, per se.

She was probably dressing provocatively.

Yes, but is she fungible...?

Can one, say, trade for her with the same commodity (i.e., a woman for a woman). Is she fungible given the other woman in question is of the approximate same height, weight, ethnicity, etc...?

Silly reason to fire someone. They should of told her what to wear, not what not to wear. E.g., "Button your shirt up to the top" instead of,"Don't wear that shirt."

Still having a problem? Avert your eyes. guaranteed to work.

From her lawyer, about the upcoming jury case:

I’d have given her a huge raise, and depending what she did with it, maybe some more money too.

Well, she will get no sympathy from a female juror, lol... women are not receptive to other women tooting their own horns. She is a pretty young woman who no doubt wore form fitting clothing, and spiked heels all to her own detriment in the business world. I am sure she was warned numerous times, but seems to have considered it her Puerto Rican birthright to dress like she is going to a party when, in fact she was going to work- in a bank no less, where I think conservative attire is demanded. Maybe she will get on a reality tv show. lol

If your wife smells, you might recommend she take a shower. (Unless you're French or into the Napoleonic/Josephine stuff.)
