aghhhh alsdkjf;askdfj;aksdjf

I always like how all the guys try to show me how they can lift a 60lb box or asks me a bunch of questions and try to distract me when I get switched to a different department. it's like these guys have never seen a girl in their life.


oh well time went by fast when my friend and i played charades at work.

Eh, despite feminism, pop culture still portrays girls/women as helpless damsels in distress who can't do anything themselves. So these dudes can't help it.

You just gotta get used to it Alphabet. The reason I show extend courtesy towards women by helping them lift things, pick up dropped items, or opening doors for them is not because they are ladies, it's because I'm a gentleman. Or at least I want to fool everyone into thinking so, heh!

Are you any good at charades? When I worked with the staff that developed new products for a timesharing company (back in the dark agesd befoer PCs) they actually could get "Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny" in about a minute or so.

60 Lbs is nothing. Load one up to 160 and then wait for the fun to start.

Oh, yes, yes they do.

And I have learned a few years ago that while men talk like pigs among themselves (e.g. "did you see the [whatever] on that chick?"), women are actually far, far worse if you get enough of them together.
