    Women in the workplace?

    Why is it you get two extremes of women in the workplace?

    Very nice personality, people always walk all over them

    Complete ball busters/battleaxes.

    Why can you not get a happy medium between the two?

    Now please comment if you NOT have encountered someone like this.

    Im not being sexist but I have been working since I was 15 and have always encountered this.

    I had a female worker call me up during the week crying as her boss was being mean to her and she thinks she is far too nice and should be a ball buster like others. I said no you should find a middle ground and she said how?

    The receptionist at our place is an obese annoying moose!

    Our accountant is also a moose, but has a SERIOUSLY fit daughter!

    As annoying as our receptionist is, she's a GREAT worker and has a heart of gold.... shame she annoys the t*its off me at times

    I don't work with any women.

    However we have a graduate (if rumours are right) starting next month, in charge of a department of male engineers.....

    Could be interesting.

    We have 2 in our room where I work and they are both 'normal'

    Have a laugh and joke as much as we do. Even the ones directed at them they laugh at and give as good as they get.

    Women in the forces are wide and varied. everything from butch skin head lesbians to petite pretentious slags! But generally the majority are pretty sound and always up for a laugh and a piss up with all the lads.

    I work in a male dominated industry and although I wouldn't count myself as a ball buster, you definitely have to give as good as you get otherwise the guys will just walk all over you. The other girl in my region is definitely a ball buster but I've met plenty in the industry who aren't.

    Being surrounded by dirty mechanics, panel beaters and painters all day is one of the perks of my job.
