Overheard in My Office

Steve, my boss, to another manager: Women in general, can’t really be bothered with [whispering:] careers such as ours.

This person has a wife and four teenage daughters.

The wondrous career he refers to is the management of two designers and one developer, yours truly.

I am the only woman he’s ever hired (told me that himself) in the 21 years he’s been with the company. I was the only candidate to pass their technical interview and they were desperate (also his admission).

I am witness to similar wonderful episodes several times a day, every day.
