I enjoy having a job so I can destroy men.

One of the assistants at my work was let go last week and it turns out he wasn't exactly keeping up with his work. We found piles of filing that should have been done. Now the rest of us are playing catch up and covering for the two attorneys he worked for.

We put up a craigslist ad right away. So far most of the applicants have been disappointing. One woman showed up 15 minutes late for her interview. Um, nope, you can go now. If I have a job interview I leave my house ridiculously early. Another woman complained about the walk from the T to our office. It's really not a bad walk and if that's too much for you I don't think you're right for the position. This job can sometimes be a bit physical with having to lug trial boxes around and running downstairs to grab documents from a client. You don't just sit at your desk all day.

Another woman looked like Elise from the movie Insidious.


Not that that's a bad thing. I just wanted to share because I found it amusing.

There is one guy they are considering who is coming back in for a second interview today. Hopefully we'll have a warm body soon.

Apparently I missed drama in the food court yesterday since I was covering phones. This guy who works in a building close to ours sometimes eats lunch with us. The receptionist knows him just from passing him in the mall all the time (the entrance to my office is in a mall). Well I don't think he'll be eating with us anymore. Apparently he made some comment about how woman earning their own money is ruining men. I'm sorry the actual wording was something like "raping men emotionally and destroying their soul". My co-worker K went off on him and basically told him that she's sorry he's not man enough to not feel threatened by women with good jobs. His response was that she's a "fucking bitch" and a lesbian. She's not either. The lesbian part came from her saying she's all set when he asked her if she was single or not.

He then stormed off. Good. See you never. He is so lucky I wasn't there. We have gone at it in the past over other stupid statements. And yes they are stupid and usually don't make any sense but none of us have ever resorted to name calling.

On top of this the Paycheck Fairness Act failed again. Why should woman get equal pay? We just show up to work so we can destroy the egos of every man.

    1. Not anymore. I was never a big fan of him but didn't feel right to tell him to leave. Now I do. He is actually in his 40s so he should know better.

  4. New here from Abby Normal. This man still had the playground bully equivalent of calling out "FATTY!" Of course his snappy comeback included the word "lesbian". I wish I'd been there too.

    1. Thanks for visiting! Really he is acting like a bully. Resorting to name calling is just sad.

  5. Yeah that walk from Copley is so arduous. It take a whole, what, 5-10 minutes? It feels nice to move a little bit before and after work, especially since work itself involves many hours of sitting.

    1. I like the walk and it's a pretty straight shot. There's not even an incline!

  6. What the hell. I don't understand why some men feel they are worth more just because of... I don't even know what. Do they feel their genitals are really that superior?
