Chauvinistic NO NOs
Do you mean something like "Well, I gave it to the girl. What do you expect?" Not starting anything here, much, but that attitude is very prevalant in the workplace today. Not said out loud. Just when the good ole boys are passing the buck. I once had an excellent female Inspector reporting to me. She came with a QC Manager's background and years of hands on Inspection skills. You would not believe the complaints from her male co-workers and other male members of Management about her. The truth be known, she was more competent than any of them. When I tried to defend her, and suggest that they might learn something from her, I was accused of " you must have something going on with her". On more than one occasion, I had to caution subordinates that they were way out of line and leave my office. Like, NOW! The whole story about her credentials vs. the complaints about her would require a separate thread. Summing it up, they were very frightened by her accuracy and eye for details. Boy, I bet I opened up a can of wormys.
Here's one I find to be big problem.to one particualr sex. I am not generalising, maybe its just the men folk I have worked with!.
