I’m sure some (or if not most) work at jobs with mostly females. Is it just me or is it different from working with men? I sometimes wonder why women are so mean and vindictive towards one another? Why can’t females just get along with one another and help each other out? Why do people resort to being hurtful and bringing one another down? I’m not saying all women are like this but it happens. Some jobs feel as if you’re back in high school or even elementary school! Some people still have a lot of growing up to do. I’ve always held jobs in sales, call centers and freelance writing gigs. The writing gigs were great because I worked from home and worked on my own time. I agree a 9-5 isn’t for everyone but you do what you have to do in order to pay those bills, buy food, things, go on vacation, support children, etc.
There’s been instances when females pretend to be your friend in the work place. Once you let your guard down, BAM! They try to get you fired, take what isn’t theirs, disrespect you, etc.! Are some people so miserable in life they want to hurt others? My conclusion is yes! I’ve always tried to help others out especially if they ask for it. At the same time, I don’t put up with bullsh*t either. I don’t allow people to walk all over me. People also tend to get upset when you call them out on their BS. They act as if it’s your fault. A lot of women also LOVE to gossip about others who aren’t in their group/clique. It also seems like people become jealous when you outperform them and take your job seriously. My parents always raised me to take any job seriously (whether I like the job or not), even if it’s flipping burgers or picking up dog sh*t.
In my experience, working with men usually seems to be more productive and laid back. Men usually don’t start drama or want to get you fired. It seems like men want to make the work day run as smoothly as possible. I’m sure some enjoy the drama but not as often as women. It seems like a lot of women want to plot against others any which way they can, unfortunately. What has your experience been like in the workplace? Have you dealt with anything like this in the past? Have you ever made friends at work? Based on previous experience, I try and just keep to myself from now on and leave. I’m not going to lie, I am guilty of thinking about work way too much when I leave the office. I am going to work on that from now on. I am going to start leaving work in the office when I go home.
