how would u feel if someone said this to you

m not going to bore u with the details, basically at my job everyones shift ends at 9 pm except two people stay until 10 and those two have a supervisor with them.

on a particularly slow night last week i was staying til ten w/ another girl and the manager said one of us could go at 9 or sooner and it would just be the one person and the sup.

i told her she could go early i wanted the extra hour

later the manager was looking at time cards and a person was behind in thier hours, they have insurance thru where i work and i dont so they have to have 30 hours every week. the manager said the supervisor could choose who would stay until ten. now i will tell you the other person is a man, and so is my supervisor.
now the sup. picked the guy to stay til ten over me and tahts fine i have insurance else where and i understand he had to get those hours more than me. what makes me mad is the way the sup. made the decision cont

  • maybe he doesnt trust himself being alone with a female or maybe he has a very jealous wife that would freak if she found out it was just him an a female associate

  • I don't think it's wrong. I would feel more comfortable working with a woman then I would a man. Just because you don't know how that person will act. Like if he's married I'm sure he doesn't want rumors started that you two got it on or anything

  • lol thats what my mom said about it, the cant handle himself alone w/ a woman. but ive worked with him alone before. and he is one of the types that has to ask his wife everything. i just think his choice shouldnt have been made by what sex i was. our staff is mostly female.

  • Welcome to the fear of sexual harassment claims environment. I'm not saying you would do that, but my husband would have done the exact same thing. He is hyper-afraid of even the possibility of the claim. He is a forester. He refuses to cruise timber with any of the women foresters without at least one other person (a male) present. I'm glad he cares that much. I hate you didn't get your hour just because some women are opportunists.

  • I suspect it isn't so much that he can't handle working with a woman but that there are too many cases of a woman accusing the man of improper behavior, and he doesn't want to have to deal with that. Plus his wife or the female coworker's husband might worry or cause trouble.

  • That is sexual discrimination. Maybe instead of worrying about a sexual harassment claim, he should be worried about a sexual discrimination claim.

  • I think thats ridiculous for you to be mad about and should stop focusing on it. Do you blame him? Every time you turn around a disgruntled employee is crying rape or sexual harassment when nothing happened just for leverage.
