Has any one ever worked a "man's" job?

I say "man's" job only because in Construction you don't see many women. I saw more that I expected but not many. Anyone else ever work something that is considered a "man's" job? Just further proof that we can do just about anything they can do, they are still stronger by far, but we hold our own quite well.

  • when i was growing up (im 21) my mom had "men jobs". she didnt have any education to speak up (she completed the 8th grade) so she didnt really have a choice. she did construction, dug ditches, worked in a furniture (sp?) building place, i could go on...

  • And by that you mean what? I was just wondering if any other women have worked a traditional "man's" job. That's all. What it was and if they still do it?

  • i AM A BIOMEDICAL EQUIPMENT TECHNICIAN- THE ONLY GIRL IN OUR DEPARTMENT. some guys look at me or ask do you need help with that? I tell them no, im perfectly capable myseIf. And seeing how some women are on here im glad i work with men instead of a bunch of women. i wouldn't have it any other way.

  • That's why I did what I did, I cannot work with other Women, they are (for the most part) catty, underhanded, two faced liars. I get along with men WAY better. I have very close Women friends but they have my personality so it works. I trust Men way more than Women.

  • Way to go ladies!!!! We rock!!! I no longer work outside of the home, I'm home with our children, that and when my Dad and I were building a barn, I ruputured a disk in my back and had major back surgery. Damn 350 pound I beams, I guess I shouldn't have lifted 8 of them above my head to set them in place. Oh well, it was still my FAVORITE job ever and I did it for 6 years.
