I made a comment to a co worker that I didn't mind doing my share of lifting and helping out.  His response was that I didn't need to worry about it because I would get hurt and not be able to have babies.  That statement was so out of left field that I just stared at him for a moment.  And I couldn't think of a reply that wouldn't get me fired. 

I'm tired of men I don't know calling me baby and honey.

I'm sick of telling a man something only to have him go to another man for conformation.

I'm tired of male astonishment when I successfully cary out simple tasks.

Oh, and when I say that I can do something, I don't need to be doubted.  I know my limits and have the sense to ask for help if I'm in over my head.

I know that I'm not singing a new song here, and I know that not all men are pompous idiots, but some days things just get to me.  I'm obviously on my period or something. /sarcasm
