We had a safety meeting today at work... we get these memos everyweek about how to be safer and if there were any accidents etc.. One of the memos stated that an employee had sprained their wrist putting a box on a pallet. (box was too big for contents and the box shifted)..the employee lost 6 days of work due to restrictions.. Anyway.. we were all done discussing that little episode and the Boss... Yes Boss says the following: "I'd be willing to bet that it was a woman with the amount of time that was taken off"... > ** < (my stare as I was whisked away to an earlier time when comments like that were accepted by placed of employment....) this would be the reason I am seeking employment elsewhere... even after 19 years here. I have to listen to this kind of crap everyday.

Chauvinism is not becoming.  Don't blame you for seeking other employment.

 Wow - he just showed his intelligence.  So sorry - that is crap.  Good luck on your job search.
