A Chester man has been hauled in front of his firm’s HR department after purchasing a vibrator as a Secret Santa gift for a female colleague.

The man, who preferred not to be named (but his name is Jason Powell, from Saughall, Chester) works for a firm of accountants in the centre of Chester. Every year the firm holds a Secret Santa where staff members randomly, and anonymously, choose a name of another staff member for whom to purchase a present. Each present has a limit of £10.

This year Jason drew receptionist Kelly Jones. Kelly, a twenty-three-year-old brunette, was described by Jason as “a bit of a sort” and so he thought it was appropriate to purchase the budget sex aid from the sex shop Nice ‘n’ Naughty.

Kelly was not impressed when opened her present. While her colleagues all received gifts such as chocolates, wine, books on finding yourself and cuddly toys, she was horrified to receive the budget vibrator ‘Pocket Pummeler Pro’.

After demanding to know which insensitive oaf had purchased the inappropriate gift, Jason was unable to contain his laughter and promptly gave the game away. This led to him spending the next three hours in a hastily convened HR meeting, where it was explained to him why what he had done was wrong.

Jason was taught about appropriateness, boundaries, sexual harassment and the ‘me too’ campaign.

After leaving the HR meeting, Jason spoke to the Bugle. He commented:

I can’t believe she complained. She’s well fit. I thought she’d love it. Her loss like. I still would, though.

Jason is convinced the firm over-reacted. Last Christmas, he got into hot water after purchasing a Roy Chubby Brown DVD for a Polish colleague to help him ‘integrate’.

Jason is single.
