Anna113619:  It’s so true. Every all-women job I’ve worked at has been drama filled. And the worst part is if you distance yourself from it, you’re considered a bitch as well for being unsociable. Ugh this thread has got me thinking about when I used to work in the cosmetics department. Shudders….

Anna113619:  Sorry to hear about the shitty day, at least its almost the weekend!!!!!!!!

Hope you have a better day, it sucks being around people who don’t get along or create drama, definately creates negativity in the workplace!

Anna113619:  I’m sorry your taking so much flack for this post.

I don’t believe you were on some campaigning mission to let the world know that women are the causers of drama- end of story.

I totally get what you were getting at, in a general sense, and took no offense from your post whatsoever- and that’s not because of my stupid experience that I shared, but a general…..understanding.  

Coincidental or not- it just happens to be that some women are better at causing drama that men.  That said- I know a few men who might tops the charts over any woman- unicorn- clown-hyena- anyday!!

I had an upper level manager who cried when the office furniture she wanted was back ordered.

Not all women are like that of course. But I have found that some predominantly female offices just have too much estrogen!

MrsEME:  

I used to work in restaurants for 6 years, and I totally get where you are coming from. When I hit 24 I just couldn’t deal with the environment, and moved on to my current job. World of difference in terms or working atmospehere.

I was also the girl that didn’t wanna go out drinking with them after work so that also added to me not wanting to serve anymore.I just wanted to work my shifts, do my job, and go home.

I acutally have nightmares where I am back serving and they are horrible lol

Well, maybe I’ve been fortunate because my boss and most of my department are filled with extremely calm, logical, reasonable and respectful women.

However, in the past, let’s say I have had problems.lol I tell people all the time that I prefer male bosses.  Sorry, men are just easier and for me they tend to present less issues. This is the first job where I have had no women issues thank God.  And honestly, I think my female boss is so cool because she has the stereotypical ‘manly’ traits.

I’ve worked lots of jobs, many of them with all-female or mostly female staffs. 98% of these women have all been nice, supportive team-players who were very honest and forthright regarding problems/issues. No gossip, backstabbing, or drama. I have to say that those who complain about how “dramatic” other women are might want to consider the common denominator (themselves) in their relationships with other women.

Also, regarding the previous post about substituting “Jews” or “black people” for “women,” I think that’s a very apt comparison. Sexism is just as bad as racism. The fact that it gets a free pass by so many shows how deeply ingrained it is to privilege “male” behavior over “female” behavior and to believe that sexism isn’t a problem in our society.

My current workplace is majority women employees, and it is horrible.  So much bitching and backstabbing.  I used to mix with the main offenders, before I woke up and realised what horrible people they are.  I have distanced myself from them, which has made me so much happier, but the downside is that I am now the target of the bitching.  Luckily a few of the other girls also know how horrible these people are, so that makes it a whole lot more bearable and we laugh together about the other girl’s vain attempts to turn everyone against me.

I am changing jobs in the new years (largely for other reasons), and hope it is a more hospitable environment than this one.

OP I’m not offended by your post.  I read it for what it was; a vent about a crappy morning at work.  I’m lucky enough to work closely with a great group of women who are smart and professional, so I haven’t had those issues.  I definitely think it depends on where/what industry you work in.  When I was in restaurants the job seemed much more social; people would make friends and spend time together outside of work.  This is why I don’t mix my work and personal life together.  Drama-filled friends are much easier to “dump” when they aren’t your coworkers.

HAPPY FREAKIN FRIDAY!!! and I hope your day gets better!

Wondering if men would ever get up in arms about a thread generalizing guys as difficult to work with? Probably not. Ha! Drama queens…
