Recalling Bad Men
This past week we hit the slopes for spring skiing. It was truly an epic year of snow. Some people we know came out skiing from NYC and Fred did a few runs with them. I caught up with them and their friends later in the morning. I went up with one of the men on the chairlift which is part of the whole experience. I learned that his wife had spent the beginning of her career at Macy’s. We had overlapped.
When we got to the top I asked her about Macy’s. Ends up she was at Bamberger’s NJ which was owned by Macy’s (bought in 1929) and changed its name to Macy’s in 1986. That was the beginning of massive shifts in the department store world.
We chatted a bit and then she told me she worked for a man, who I do say his name in public when I speak but never have written it down in a post, that I worked for as well. I said to her that he was the worst. He said to me that women do not move as quickly as men do. She then went on to tell more stories and what a disgusting person he was. Before the #metoo era the stories are endless and how I hope that they end.
This man has gone on to be extremely successful. For what it is worth, she told me that she wishes him to be dead. I would find it hard to believe that he has not retreated from his vile behavior.
Times are different now. We all must speak up. We can not let a
The time must be up.
