(We ain't even talking about Fred's comment about 'Harry Butts'!!! hahahahaha!)
In my many years living I have found one fact, I think it is indisputable, “Women are harder and more judgmental of other women than men are." I mean, women are MEAN to other women. In Washington DC, I once had a real job; I was the supervisor of forty people; thirty seven women and three men. Let me tell you folks Women are vicious. They can cut their sisters down in a heartbeat. I spent a lot of time soothing hurt feelings concerning important things like, ‘Mary said something about Jane’. Of the 37 women I had three or four who were head and shoulders above the rest. They produced and never took pot shots at their sisters. Hey folks those odds aren’t good. Four out of 37.
Something else I have discovered, a man can work for a woman, but a woman cannot (usually). As a rule a woman has no problem working for a man. Wonder why that is?
Notice I have a lot of questions and not many answers. That is why I am no longer a supervisor, I quit.
I remember the first time I had a female sailor work for me. I asked the ‘Old Man’ if he had any instructions for me regarding Waves. His answer was, “Treat them like you do any other sailor!”
Within a month I was in his office telling him it was impossible. I had a Seaman call me ‘Chiefie’, when I explained to her I was her ‘Chief’. She began to cry. That’s when I learned you cannot order a girl to stop crying. When I told the Old man that, he said, “Do the best you can, but don’t make any more of your women cry.”
Thanks a lot. (It happened only one more time while I was in Washington, a good story, later maybe).
Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?
