My computer was fried last night, with lemonade. I use it for school and work. Wine helped my nerves afterward, but today work just set me off.
I told my boss about it, and he asked me what I wanted to do about it. Honestly, I want him to get us a computer to work on. I’m tired of this bullshit, and that their entire department depends on our personal computers. But I couldn’t bring myself to just say that so bluntly. Was I falling back into “polite woman” character?
Then, as I tried to work on an old pc without the proper programs, my coworker came out of the women’s restroom complaining that she almost burned her hand with the water. That sink has been that way ever since I’ve been there, now a year. The cold water doesn’t work. Just the hot, and it gets scalding hot, fast. So I asked, “just the women’s? What about the men’s?” No the men’s is fine, she said. So maybe I’m reading into this but had no woman that worked there ever voiced this concern? Did they ever see it as a concern? Separate and not equal. That concerns me. But I guess that’s what happens when the bosses are all men. Fuckers.
They’re not going to like me as much as they used to when I stayed quiet.
