@MrsCoachBtoBee: Men in my profession (computer tech) get paid a hell of a lot more than women.  AND get preferencial treatment.  It f’ing SUCKS.

I have actuallyy worked for chauvanists in the past who made it clear that women were a subspecies. Try putting up with that every day!

At my current job they actually took work away from one of the guys to give to me, lol. But the guys who work downstairs get free donuts. So not fair ๐Ÿ˜›

I did once work at a store where the assistant manager stood by and let a customer make all sorts of chauvinistic remarks to me because I wouldn’t give him a refund on a product he a) didn’t even bring in with him, b) had already consumed in its entirety, and c) only wanted his money back for because it hadn’t been on sale. Then the AM stepped in and gave the customer the refund he wanted, let him make a few parting jabs at me (“That’s why I wanted to talk to a MAN!”) and wished him a good day. I asked the AM why he didn’t tell the customer off for treating an employee so badly and he replied, “Eh, it wasn’t worth a fight.” Gee, thanks. I guess you’re right, I’m only one of the highest rated employees you have, why defend me?

@MrsCoachBtoBee: meh…. it is, but in a right-to-work state, you’re kinda screwed.  

And… that is why I write fiction.  ๐Ÿ˜‰  You can dish out all the justice and revenge you want and get away with it. And, if you’re really lucky, you might even get paid for it! LOL!
