I work in a geriatric center. I've said that before.

Anyway, today, I walked past this 90 year old man and he looks at me and says "hey there good lookin'!" and waggles his eyebrows. I just say "good morning", and look in his room to see if it needs to be cleaned.

He sees me looking into his room and says "oh don't you worry, honey. My wife ain't in right now". Um...gross.

Then later, I walk past him again, and he says "wow, you're just like Santa Claus, coming by and showing me your goodies!"

HE'S 90 YEARS OLD. I'M 17. GROSS.

I think it's pointless to be reporting residents for harassment. Especially on medical wards. Seriously, these people can't even sit up by themselves, and everybody knows it's only a matter of time before they die. Why make their last days uncomfortable by getting them in trouble? It wouldn't prove anything. He's just a flirty old man who didn't have his wife around to censor his mouth.

Yech, that is gross.

Thank god its never happened to me, but there was that one time that this old man "bumped" into the back of me, but supposedly he was just "trying to get by" which was bullshit.

Anywho, since you said its pointless to get him in trouble, just tell him to stop harassing you or you won't change his bedpan.

At my work we have a dirty old man by the name of Oscar he harrasses my boss from time to time, she hides out in the back until he leaves. I estimate he is like 80 or 90 years old but man he gets around.

Not my duty anyway. I'm a housekeeper, not an aide.

Though I could tell him I won't clean his sink....

This is just cold, but..

I personally support any hostile physical act you wish to undertake against the man. He is by now a burden to society, so try not to weird people out while you are at it, ok grandpa?

Let the old man have some fun. Don't make his last days uncomfortable like you said. If he wants to flirt with you, let him, just make sure he knows it aint happening between you two. Why dont you try and make his day by going along with his flirting JUST ONCE, and then never do it again. I know its gross, but just have fun with it, dont let one old guy gross you out. Or just tell him you're a lesbian, which would make him even happier, and MIGHT make him stop flirting with you. Just try to make some fun out of this disgusting situation.
