I always complain about how women make the worst managers/ heads of units et al. CUZ THEY DO! and i feel strongly about it because i have seen how cranky they get, professionalism doesn't mix well with PMS, i presume.
ANYWAYS. so there i was today (with 3 hours of sleep and back to back meetings from 7 AM).. and at around 12 pm, having witnessed a mini dispute a la cat fight, i was really at the end of my rope. Bear in mind that i am still sore from an encounter earlier this week with my in-charge. Totally uncalled for, totally unjust! So when a similar thing happened today i couldn't help but announce to everyone that: women will always be women, it doesn't matter if ur in a hospital (work environment) or a meelas (socializing).. they would still gossip, take things personally or just try to make your life horrible... its what they do.
Our supervisor, another woman, heard the whole thing.. and went like: and what are u? aren't u a woman?
I wanted to tell her that I do my best not to be sucked into the pettiness.. But it seemed inappropriate. We just kinda laughed it off.. But i do feel strongly about this.
Correct me if i am wrong, but isn't having a woman as your boss the worst possible case scenario?
Maybe its a cultural thing, I'm not sure yet, but I'm pretty positive it applies to women en generale..
- to getting some sleep, sometime soon! x
