Zero Knitting Content....

....just a rant.

I know I work in a profession primarily populated by people with penises, but PLEASE! When I ask you a question, have the courtesy to direct your answer to ME, not one of my penis-posessing colleagues.* I cannot think of one thing you could do, short of slap me on the ass and ask me to get you a cup of coffee, that could piss me off more.

*I am extremely fortunate to work in a wonderful place with exceedingly wonderful co-workers, and rarely have to face this kind of behavior. This particular ire-inducing incident was perpetrated by an outside contractor.

Ugh, how infuriating! I'm glad you don't have to face that often, but that fact sure doesn't make it any less off-pissing when it does happen, I'm guessing.

sorry to hear that. I've encountered that too in a different form. I hope it gets resolved.

ACK! I hate that!

About 10 years ago I was shopping for a new car. I took a friend with me that was a total screaming *queen* (and proud of it!) He was so feminine he made Nathan Lane look butch!
Anyway, every.single.dealer. spoke directly to Eric and ignored me completely even tho I was asking the questions! Sheesh!

Oh, that blows. Really and truly. I work in an area that is penis-predominant and have been asked to "get me a cup of Joe, doll" and have had salespeople ask to see the "man in charge...the lab director". Ahem. Snookums? You're lookin' at HER. :)

Wow, that's bad. You'd think by now people would know better. I guess there are still Neanderthals out there.

That happens all the time in my line of work. Very irritating.

OMG, I was LMAO @ Mini's "snookums" comment. Too funny. Sorry about the outsider. What a schmuck.

We had a veterinarian who used to do that. She's not our vet any more.

Oh, how I hate that stuff.

you know, despite the funk of having to deal with pompous penis people, I do like all the alliteration of that first sentence. :) (sorry, being all late and glass half full over here.)
