Too sexy to work in a bank

A former Citibank employee has filed a lawsuit against her employers for allegedly firing her because her male colleagues found her "too distracting".

Debrahlee Lorenzana, 33, who worked in a New York branch of the bank, also claimed she was not allowed to wear certain clothes because it was "too distracting" for her bosses and co-workers.

"My entire life, I have been dealing with this. I couldn't take it anymore!" Lorenzana told the Village Voice, which did a cover story on her.

"I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I said, 'You gotta be kidding me!' I was like, 'Too distracting? For who? For you? My clients don't seem to have any problem."
