The receptionist walked right past two of my male colleagues to ask me if I could take the phones while she and the other admin person went out to lunch. The ONLY reason is that I'm a woman. When I started to question that she decided she might ask the other two and one of them helpfully volunteered.

Shock! Horror! In a moment of impulse, the receptionist was being sexist by discriminating against her male colleagues! Do you seriously believe this Julie? Perhaps she asked you because you have a better phone manner than your other two male colleagues?

Oh DG, do you not know that only teh womenz talk on teh fone. Teh menz communicate by manly psychic powers alone..
DG posted at 12.12 on 9th January
We have three very able and polite males working on our phones in our [redacted] support centre. They are definitely not psychic!

Nope, she asked me because I was the only other woman in the office. She didn't even think to ask them until I started to question why she was asking me in particular. Clearly she didn't want to diminish their essential manly fluids by excessive exposure to a telecommunications device.

Telecommunications devices are a total killer for the essential manly fluids. They also diminish men's psychic communication powers by jamming the signal (received via chest and nose hair).

Unless they're an iPhone of course.
DG posted at 12.32 on 9th January
and our guys don't suffer from excessive nose hair yet in their life cycles, nor do they have iPhones. Keep up the jovial stereotypes Enid, you are making me have a good laugh on the last few days of my vacation.
I might go get a woman to cook my eggs now LOL

Perhaps you should also clean the kitchen Julie - you have a better kitchen manner.

I note you didn't comment on the hairy-chestedness, or otherwise, of your male colleagues DG...
DG posted at 13.08 on 9th January
there's only so far that I would delve regarding what men have under their shirts. Chest hair also occurs on some women so it's not an area for discussion really.
