I noticed lately... women are so darn bitter! They walk around with dissatisfied facial expressions, they harp on everyone, snap at people every chance they get and are huge on getting into ridiculous jealousy feuds. Is it just me, or has it become increasingly worse in general? What is going on? Why?

OH MY GOD!!!

Do I have stories to tell but I cant on open forum. And believe me I am not perfect by any means but there is one woman I know who will drive the Dali Lama to the nut house.

Actually this is a huge issue in the business world. I will try to find that study and post it here but is said that 54% of females do not want to work for a female manager because of all the bagged that female management carries. Men was even higher. Puts companies at a very bad place when it comes to hiring female management. sad.gif

BTW: Welcome back Poncho. How are you doing kiddo?

To be honest, I think it's been like that for as long as I can remember.

Now I would classify this one as a rhetorical question.

Well let's see... Majority of my dealings is with the Academic "world." But then there are saleswomen, cashiers, traffic officers, MTA workers. Perhaps I should even reduce it to minorities. I have an awful luck with black women. They are so aggressive, sometimes I think it's a race issue or maybe it's because my derriere is just as big as theirs.

Recently I had a screaming exchange with a Bridge Patrol officer. We took a wrong turn and ended up in the Easypass lane (a prepaid pass that just gets scanned, eliminating the need to pay the toll each time). She was a pyramid of a woman, I explained the situation and told her that we don't need to go to Manhattan but Brooklyn, and if there is something we can do to avoid paying the toll. Without even looking at me, while she was leaning against some poll, she barked that it was our fault and responsibility to pay the toll. When I asked her if we can just pay her (she wasn't in the booth), she snapped "you see me standing here right, baby?" As I was giving her the money I told her that she doesn't need to show me attitude, that I was politily questioning. She started yelling and I started yelling back, she ordered us to pull over and demanded our driver's license. After the drama was over we left.

Now, my friend works in the Motor vehicle Investigation unit and she has a badge. She told me that in a similar situation, she didn't even had to flash it, they just took her license and told her to turn around and get it on the way back, to make sure she is not trying to swindle them. It was possible for the pyramid to help me, but she just wanted to be a witch. There are sooooo many more of that sort. Most of the students that give my department biggest trouble are black women. I hear this from men as well. I also have the hardest time with female professors, they are just plain nasty. Now I don't understand why? What has happened to women that they need to be such witches? Is life too much to handle for them?

Anoushik:

I have a completely different version of women around New York Metropolitan area. I live in Northern part of New Jersey, which is very close to New York City. In my college I have had the most wonderful women professors of all time. All three of these women professors were like role models to me. So smart and yet so wonderful. Apart from that, I have also met young college girls and they all like me as I like them, and I get along with them very well. Now I know I am older than them; but as I have become friendly and with empathy, they have similarly responded to me in likeness. Even the black women. I know the black women are a bit harsher than the whites sometimes; but I talk to them in a special sincere way and they end up liking me just the same as the whites.

I don't know, but maybe I have a special touch or a special way of talking to people that they have ended up liking me. You know what it is? I have usually talked to them with sincerety and with thruthfullness with a smile; and it always works.

So you see? To each her own. I have had good experiences to speak of, of the academic women in here as well as the salesladies, etc. etc. That's why, in general I love people because they are usually really wonderful!

You know what it is? You've got to use your smarts. Even with the so called grumpy ones. I turn it into a challenge and I give them a special smile or even a small compliment and they turn around their grumpiness 360 degrees. I like challenges, don't you?

So that's why, I say most most people on earth are really wonderful; you just have to open up to them first and be really sincere, then they'll love you for it. wink.gif

However the Armenian women in general, especially the older ones; and in some cases even the younger ones I have had problems with; as they have acted with me in bitterness, jealousy and with wanting. Generally speaking, I don't see why most Armenian girls or women should be that way. I have had my problems with Armenian girls and women. I think in most part they have showed me jealousy and a lot of kneedling; which is not good at all and point blank, it's a shame.

i think the problem is that we are raising a generation or two of women to be as agressive as men. and i have no issues with that but some just go above and beyond the avg male.
