What she wore: pink long-sleeve tee, denim skirt, pink Uggs (I know people say these are out of style, but here in AR we’re OK with them and it’s kind of like getting to wear slippers to work)
I hate to even write this down because I feel like a traitor to my sex.
Working with a whole lot of women can suck sometimes. Nothing really set me off today, but in general it seems like women-dominated workplaces can be a little bitchy. At my school every team has one man–I think this helps break things up a little, but still things get weird. The other day at team meeting all the older women that I work with started giving Mr. K all these compliments like "you’re such a good teacher," "you have such a great personality." Somehow I doubt this happens in real estate offices or technology firms. I can’t imagine my husband sitting there with a bunch of fellow officers and gushing over a new lieutenant and telling him how great his personality is. Not to mention the fact that if I were to compliment Mr. K like that whispers would be going all over town.
At least it’s not like my old job where there really was a horrible gossip problem. The people at my current job are much less nasty–and at least I don’t work in an elementary school. I’ve heard those places are all out bit#h fests!
Food for thought?
