"C" for "Corporate Cartoons"

I love doodling.  I love making cartoons using paint brush or any other tool or website and toondoo.com is an awesome website which helped me a lot in blogging. Some times things which we fail to explain in words can easily be displayed in the form of a cartoon. If we cannot reflect few expressions using words or exclamations(!) we can definitely take the help of illustrations or cartoons.

The below cartoon shows various kinds of corporate cartoons/ flirts. They are incorrigible , unbeatable and unrepairable flirts. Some are harmless where as some cross their limits which is irritating.

Below are few categories of flirts

1.) Always on a look out for a hot lady : A new joiner, new team mate, receptionist so on so forth. They are always on a look out for a pretty woman! Their vision gets strong, hearing frequency increases and god knows what other senses get active when ever they spot a hot lady. They can't resist ogling and discussing her and sometimes they give ratings to her too - 7/ 10 , 10/ 10 ....!

2.) Shaking hand unnecessarily : I also faced this. It is very easy to demarcate between people who shake hands as a polite gesture and who just hold hands just for the heck of it. There is a difference in the "touch" so the battalion of men need not start a war of words by saying that they are scared to be even polite these days. Of course men face such scenarios too where every polite gesture is considered as flirtatious by few women who think importantly about themselves :)

3.) Saving the damsels in distress : They will push their limits to help the lady. They may have to burn the midnight oil or skip some thing important to gain few brownies and needless to say many women take advantage of these heroes!

4.)Too friendly.. too Intrusive:  You shoo them away but they will be behind you. You turn around and change your direction, if you spot them but they will always be on their toes and cling like a parasite on your back. This is the toughest category of men to whom you need to give a blunt response at times to keep them at the bay.



Hope you enjoyed this cartoon :) This is not a post to start Men Vs women fight. This is just to share some laughs. I know there are many women who take advantage of poor flirts and there are many other categories of flirts too. It needs a different blog post. Will meet with some other toon doo doodle before the challenge ends. I have made some cartoons which depict a typical corporate boss - Mr. Half Baked Head- Read my posts with label Half Baked Head Doodles if interested!

Thanks for your readership and support :) This is my 3rd post for "A to Z blogging Challenge 2014"

  22. Interesting and funny.. but took me back to my days in India, at one of my work places, where I faced similar situations, and being naive, I was almost trapped. Thank God, I realized at the right time.
