The one on Alpha Females

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

i agree hands down.
women = meanies
what do they get out of this?
i feel suffocated around too many women...each one trying to out do one another with their tongues and their things...
it's good to know that atleast there are some normal women out there!!

Come on... there are some very successful, professional women: Nouria Al-9ebee7 the minister of education in Kuwait, Sheikha Al-Ba7ar from NBK, Fayza Al-Khurafi former president of KU and the most successful president yet, and many, many others.

If we women place ourselves in those stereotypes we can never gain respect in work environments.

^shm3at al jilas she's not saying women aren't successful, but the things is women in leading/supervising positions has this aggressive/Meany/whiny/moody/jealousy attitude!

which i totally can relate to from my daily observations @ work.

Yes, lil asaf they tend to do all that..


Sham3at al jillas: I am all for women taking positions and making a difference, and leading those under them in a professional manner. But they also need to be aware of their shortcomings, maybe its because of how the female brain works, or the culture, or hormones... but the fact remains.. everyone i had this conversation with, and from what i have seen.. women tend to work more emotionally than professionally.. I actually came across a research paper that found that employee satisfaction was higher in organisations lead by men, its a good paper.. i should send it to you.. Again.. im NOT anti-women.. I'm just saying it as it is.. from my perspective :)
