Whether it's why you should love your boobs or why you should not cut your own bangs, MTV's "Girl Code" delivers fresh insight about all-too-familiar topics, and is sure to sometimes have its female viewers fervently nodding their heads while mouthing to the television screen, "Yessss, exactllllly!!!" Oprah calls that kind of catharsis an "aha! moment," which sounds like a positive thing, so we're highlighting a different part of the show each week that made us feel like maybe, just maybe, we're not the loner freaks we originally assumed. Take a look at the latest below.
"I think workplace romance can be fine, as long as you're in just a job-job, and not a career-job." -- Wise words from Alice Wetterlund.
Whenever you start work at a new place, it's easy to get excited by all of the fresh eye candy -- especially if you're lucky enough to work at a place like MTV, where everyone's young, attractive and not afraid to admit they like "One Direction." But "Girl Code" dictates that while you can look, you most definitely should not touch, because if things with your office fling go south, everyone at the next all-hands meeting will have to cut the tension in the boardroom with a spork. Not that that's ever happened in our office...
"You're not supposed to f**k your coworkers," Nicole Byer puts it simply in the clip below, before explaining, conversely, just how convenient it is to get all your jollies in one place. "But, like, when you get to f**k one, it's like, 'Yeahhh! I get to go to work, make money and have sex!'" (Nicole, have you been booking "brainstorming sessions" with the intern again?)
As fun as a bit of inter-office afternoon delight sounds, Nessa knows first-hand that any perks that come from hooking up with the guy a few cubes down is not worth the messy aftermath. "I don't think you should date anyone you work with. Take it from me! I did it! So, I'm not, like, trying to tell you something I don't know. I'm telling you, don't f**king do it." We're inclined to stick with Nessa's cautionary advice, however Carly and Chris might beg to differ, as they're the two Codemasters that decided this one rule was worth breaking.
