I was once working on a reception desk where my boss thought he was so funny, he was constantly cornering you to retell a really old joke and everyone would have to laugh otherwise he got moody. It was a PR agency, and most of the other staff were women, and I guess he liked the fact he had a male receptionist because he could banter with me a bit more. But it got too much when he used to wait for me behind doors and attack me. He was in his 60’s but thought it was what every red-blooded male wanted at work. It was so embarrassing I never knew what to do, I just had to wait until he let me go. I just wanted to be left alone!
