Man, What A Boss!

, , , | Working | March 30, 2018

(We have a new girl starting with us today. We are getting everything prepared for opening, and the owner is going through the list of jobs and assigning them. After we’re all put to work, the new girl comes up to us.)

New Girl: “Whoa, is he always like that?”

Me: “Like what?”

New Girl: “So misogynistic! I’ve never heard anyone speak so authoritatively to a woman. I was genuinely scared.”

Me: “He wasn’t being misogynistic. He doesn’t even raise his voice when he’s angry.”

New Girl: “Yes, he was. He was walking around like he owned the place!”

Coworker: “He does.”

New Girl: “No, [Owner] does!”

Me: “That’s him.”

(She gave us all blank looks then blushed. She excused herself to go to the toilet and didn’t come back. We learned later that she resigned; she thought the owner was a woman, because his name was gender-neutral.)
