I know, I know. Blog much lately. Anyway needless to say my life has not been in the normal category for awhile. However, with that said……I wanted to share this email I got from my baby sis. She works in a very big city at a place that is male dominated. She lives far from home and I miss her terribly (you will totally understand why when you read this)
I don’t feel like I’m good at being a girl. I mean, I think I used to be good at it… I was in a sorority for Christ’s sake! I’m so sick of having to act like a woman and work w/women. Is it just me? I don’t think I’m a dyke or anything… just not sure why I struggle at this.
In the past two weeks I have had it out with two different female vendors and I’m convinced it’s b/c I didn’t start my email w/”Hey! Hope your day is going well.” and end it w/”Merry Christmas!” No. I refuse. The bitch messed up so I cut the fluff and told ‘em that. Both of them, instead of acknowledging they dropped the ball and that I’m the unsatisfied client, tried to get pissy w/me! Really?! You wanna do this?! I freakin’ bitch slapped ‘em both w/so many facts proving they’re dumbasses. (I’m also convinced that if a male client sent the exact same email I sent… there would have been an effort to make good… not get emotional.)
I guess what got me going today is that I just heard one of my Engineer’s in the hall make a comment about how the “last girl used to take care of us.” (They gave out calendars a couple weeks ago and apparently I failed to pick up enough for them.) I also used to hear about the “last girl used to bring in cupcakes every week.” You know what, screw that, screw all of that. I am not your mom. I have absolutely no desire to win people over by giving them stuff. I do not get paid to wipe your ass… I have a job and I do my job.
I get it though, it’s a nice gesture, but I don’t see them complaining about their supervisor not picking up calendars or the director not baking cupcakes… no… it’s b/c I’m a woman and apparently that comes w/the territory. I have to do my job- just like you- but you EXPECT me to spend my days running around the arena in heels picking up whatever free stuff I find around the building FOR YOU and my evenings putting frosting on baked goods!!!
Do you think there’s any room on WordPress for this cute little blog? =)
Love you. Thanks for listening.
Yes Jenni, this lil’ blog is totally WordPress material. I love you too!
