Important accomplishments and contributions - Check. Team player - Check. Doesn't smell like a fish market - Check.

Hey ladies. Feeling under appreciated at work? Want a big, fat raise but just don't know how to go about asking for one? Then I've got one word for you -

Douche.

That's right, douche. Clean the private area. Take a special shower. Steam clean the meat curtains.

Summer's Eve ran this rather unfortunate ad in a recent issue of Women's Day magazine:


According to the ad a crucial step, nay, the FIRST step in approaching your boss for a raise is making sure your special place is nice and squeaky clean before leaving for work with the help of Summer's Eve Feminine Wash. Then eating a good breakfast. It's all about priorities, people.

And then if that wasn't bad enough, ladies, if you're worried you might stink up your boss's office with your womanly smell, maybe you should bring a packet of feminine cleansing clothes with you to the office to freshen up with before sitting down for the big talk. You never know what may waft up when you cross and uncross your legs.

Summer's Eve's brand manager has since apologized for the ad stating that "... Fleet Laboratories and Summer's Eve brand have the utmost respect for women." They respect you, but they still think you're kind of stinky.

Kind of makes you long for days like this, doesn't it?

Oh Jesus Christ, now I've seen it all. I think your label pretty much sums it up. Are you fucking kidding me?! Unfortunately, no. You are not.

Words have officially failed me on this one.

I am bothered the most by "Great job on XXX project, you made me look good"

What In The Hell?

"Focus on things you've done to improve the bottom line" is making me laugh, though.

As someone who has done advertising campaigns, I am really curious which ad agency is responsible for something this disturbing.

I, um, I... uh... never worried about this stuff before they came along. Thanks Summer's Eve for making me feel not so fresh.

That is CRAZY!

meat curtains....that's a new one.

I never thought that flower-scented junk was something the Higher Ups look for when deciding on handing out raises. Hm. Learn something new every day.

Douche is something I *call* my boss, not something I do because I have to ask him for a raise.

(Their stupidity is kind of funny, however.)

This might be the weirdest thing I've ever seen.

So if I'm ever passed over for a raise or promotion, now I have to start worrying about whether or not my reeking vag had something to do with it? Awesome.

Remember when we were on that boat? And we were chatting about how "not so fresh" we felt? Yeah, those were good times.

"That not-so-fresh feeling" is still something I say all the time because it cracks me up. But it usually refers to when I am doing something like scrubbing out the trash cans.
