Beck Eleven at The SST reports:
Wolf whistles from building sites might seem long gone, but workers have developed a new code to alert each other to passing women.
The classic “whit-woo” indicating a female passer-by is an industry no-no, with wolf-whistlers given warnings and moved to other sites.
But workers, who declined to be named because their contracts forbid them speaking to the media, have confirmed codes exist to communicate the presence of women walking past.
“We might yell something like, ‘Wayne’s at the gate’,” one said.
Another identified “Anyone got a spanner?” was their code.
Wolf whistling is rather primitive and aggressive, but I don’t think you are ever going to stop blokes alerting other blokes to the presence of an attractive person. And if it is done in a non-obvious way, I can’t say I see any harm.
