It's a sad fact for me

I use to work in a sales environment where I was the only woman. It was chalk full of competition and pretty fast paced. At my new job women out number the men specifically in my department. It makes me uncomfortable at best. I've seen and been let in on some of the catty BS. I stay without opinion because I'm here for a paycheck.

I don't want to be involved or associated with any kind of drama. One of the girls tonight told me I was standoffish. I just shrugged and said I was still pretty new just getting my footing. What I really wanted to say was that I want nothing to do with the cool kid circle or any of the bullshit coworker drama. I know I probably come off as a bitch, but I'm just too old for it.

I miss my old job. ):

I'm so sorry, how come you had to change jobs?

I was told I had a transfer. My manager screwed up the process so when I got to my new home in TN and went to the store they told me they'd never heard of me. My managers did what they could from there, but the store had filled my position. Sending me searching for a new job ASAP. I got one at Bass Pro in the front end (customer service, registers and credit). I sell BPS credit cards now. It's hourly too, I was 100% commission .

I can't work with too many women. They are certainly catty. One girl at work told me today not to talk to a certain male coworker because he is her man. Ummm? What?

Oh man. That's rough. Hopefully you can find something that makes you happy.

I hear ya.

When I worked as a RN the field was mostly all women, very few men when I started.

As a CRNA there are a lot more men, thankfully.  I find it much easier working with men.  In *my* experience men work harder and stay away from the politics.  I love it.

That happened to me too. I was just in the parking lot talking to some guy coworker and this lady threatened me that if I break his heart she will deal with me. I told her I can talk to whomever I want.
