Two Parter

Read & answer Part I truthfully before reading Part II behind the cut & answering truthfully --

(Pick s/he depending on which gender you're attracted to.)

You're a mid-level manager at a company.  Your boss quit last week, & the company decided to replace him ASAP with someone you've never seen before.

You're sitting in your cubicle & the most unattractive person you can imagine walks over to you.

Although s/he doesn't have awful body odor, s/he is covered in a layer of glossy sweat & body hair.

His/her hair hasn't seen a hairbursh in a week.  His/her clothes are completely wrinkled & threadbare.

S/he slides a hand across your back & squeezes your shoulder gently.  S/he offers you a cup of coffee.

S/he says with professional tone & a friendly smile, "Hi!  I'm your new boss!  I think we should go to lunch to get to know each other better since we'll be having lots of long nights together."  You've been at your job for three years, & you've always had to work lots of overtime at least 4 days of the week, so s/he isn't saying anything untrue. 

Would you find this scenario creepy?

You've been single for two years & you work as a mid-level manager at a company. 

Your boss quit last week, & the company decided to replace him ASAP with someone you've never seen before.

You're sitting in your cubicle & the most attractive person you can imagine walks over to you.

S/he smells divine & has a perfect body.

S/he doesn't have a hair out of place.  S/he looks like s/he should be the cover model for GQ/Vogue.

S/he slides a hand across your back & squeezes your shoulder gently.  S/he offers you a cup of coffee.

S/he says with professional tone & a friendly smile, "Hi!  I'm your new boss!  I think we should go to lunch to get to know each other better since we'll be having lots of long nights together."  You've been at your job for three years, & you've always had to work lots of overtime at least 4 days of the week, so s/he isn't saying anything untrue.

Would you find this scenario creepy?

If you gave different answers to the different scenarios, were you really being fair?? 

Explain!

Edit/Addition: Do your answers change if you take the touching away from both scenarios? Or only from scenario #1?
