Sometimes it really kind sucks having a guy for a manager. I mean, as I've said many a time, I love Scott to pieces. I do. I couldn't ask for a better manager. It's just, well... Scott was all surprised that I came in today, after I left way early yesterday with the sick thanks to the Cramps of Epic Fail(tm). Now, see, if I had a female manager, I just could have explained that it was Cramps of Epic Fail(tm) and that I was feeling much better today, but you can't explain Cramps of Epic Fail(tm) to a guy. It's just... creepy. Possibly bordering on sexual harassment or something, I don't know. It's just Not Done.

So, yeah, score one for the gender divide.

I've actually found that some guys, as soon as you hint the problems involve your girly bits, they back off, wave chocolate and don't want any more information at all. I suspect it would work on my current boss....

Try doing it in Japanese. o_O

I mean, we HAVE "menstrual days" allowed in our contract, but calling your male supervisor and telling him that you need to TAKE one? Yeah. No.

I wish we had those. 'Menstrual days' that is. Cause those'd be useful, but nooooooooo.

That sucks.

I wouldn't care to tell the department manager if I was having bad cramps, because that's just John, but like the store manager? Meh.

I hate explaining anything to him period. (No pun intended >.>) He just stares at you as you try to tell him anything, as he's already decided that you have no idea what you're talking about. He's not mean, he's just... off-putting.

Yes, all you have to do is say, "You see, sir, it's that time of the month" and you can almost hear the wall being built up around his brain so he doesn't have to process anything else you say. YOu could probably say, "It's that time of the month, sir, and I hate your guts" and it wouldn't matter, 'cuz the only thing going on in his mind is, "please don't say anything more about your period!!! Ew blood gross!"

I'm not like that, but 99% of my male friends are.
