It's seema odd to me (Being white and British) but surely if they are born in America they are Americana, why does it it matter where they great grandparents come from?
Mine are from Germany but I don't get reffered to Anglo-german
Just seems strange to me is all
Gen Xer here. I love old commercial jingles, especially ones from the 70s and 80s and often I will use them to make commentary on things I'm doing. We were in a meeting with sales and marketing and were discussing a new initiative that would involve both parties in a way we've never done before. One of the younger marketing women was outlining this and I said, "You've got your chocolate in my peanut butter!" This was a popular tag line for Reeses Peanut Butter Cups back in the day and I was using it to (I thought) illustrate how we were putting two good things together. To make it worse, some of the older meeting participants laughed.
I didn't think anything of it until I had the head of HR come into my office and ask to see me. Apparently, the young woman who is in her 20s had never heard of the commercial and thought I was making a sexually charged remark at her. Even the HR person hadn't heard of the commercial. I had to go online and actually pull up the commercial for them to believe me. I'll never live this down.
UPDATE: Nothing bad happened to me. Everyone kind of laughed it off and it was seen as a teachable moment, but honestly it just made me feel old and misunderstood. The old way of the office where women, or people of color had to ignore a battery of comments was untenable and I'm glad things have changed. We are all better for it, but I do believe the pendelum has swung too far the other way so that everyone is afraid of saying anything. I don't have any animosity to HR (They were just doing their job) and none to the woman. I think that younger generations have been taught to not accept the subtle dog whistles and innuendo that plagued historical society and as such have sometimes lost the subtleties of conversations which don't always have to be negative. Things are more binary with them at times. I think they have to be that way. It gives a workplace rules where everything is more equal. That's generally a great thing, but there is also a levity and organic element that's lost too. I don't know the answer. I will however be keeping to myself much more as a result and be less likely to share my jingles. Lol.
TL;DR In using an old commercial jingle to make a complimentary comment, I instead ended up being hauled into HR for sexual harassment.
