Peeve for The Day


I seem to be all about feminism today....

But, this pisses me off....

So, I work in an office with mostly men. I am one of only2 female managers. My office is in the middle of a long line of management offices (occupied by men), surrounded by cubicles with engineers and other technical staff. Management offices are enclosed with glass windows and wood doors. It is quite a long walk down the hallway from the main door - past a male and 2 female AA's, past conference rooms and other management offices - to reach my office.

Why is it then, pray tell, that MEN walk into my office, without feeling the need to have themselves announced, to ask me if I am "the secretary for... (some man)"? WTF!

Why is it ok to see breastssses and assume that the one wearing them is a "secretary"?

It should be common sense. Look at our office layout.



Ok, I am sure I could have been more diplomatic - today - but I'm cranky and so therefore, I bit his head off.
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

You have a lot of managers, is it like the saying "too many chiefs and not enough indians"? Out of interest, what do you manage?

This drawing is the front part (management area) of the head office. The cubicles (in this area) are for 32 staff offices. The back part of the office accommodates approximately 60 others. There are around 1000+ other workers at sites around Kuwait. Lots of Indians for the chiefs.
