Why is it MEN seem to get along better in this field than WOMEN??!!! - page 5

Hello this was brought up to me so now I'm sharing it with you all, I had a new R.N. nurse come to me in tears because another R.N. treated and talked to her very badly when she asked her basic... Read More

    I think at least one lady on this bulletin board finally understands the way this world works. The rest of you ladies are clueless, as usual! I have lived my life trying to treat everyone equally so I have adopted the motto, "You can't hit a lady, but you can smack a B*tch!". It has gone a long way to shortening most arguments with women (or men) who don't know how to be polite!
    I think you are the one whom is CLUELESS because if I'm right MONIST is a MAN and not a woman this is his quote, The one thing a man knows down deep is that he either has to kick butt or get his butt kicked. There is mutual respect among men because no one wants to have to fight in the parking garage after work. An MD will never talk down to even a male housekeeper because he knows he may actually get beat up if he does. It hurts to get punched, so we stay on our best behavior with each other. I used to go shooting out in a popular shooting spot in the desert. It was the only place everyone seemed truly polite to one another. It's amazing how mutual assured destruction works even on the microscopic level. As for as your little underlined motto about smack a ***** evidently you haven't crossed the right lady!:angryfire

    I have had to put down a couple B*tches (both men and women) in my days. I think a couple good smacks would help your attitude! I am just here to help.

    If you are here to help HELP !!!! but don't put down on all women I was the one that started this thread and I did agree with some things all of the men have said, but to say women are basically the cause of all the chaos is crazy because as I stated before I have witnessed some men with backbiting behaviors and you call that help when you are telling me you think a couple of smacks from you will help my attitude I'm afraid not BUDDY!!! You need to go and come again and read the entirety of the post instead of jumping in because I don't think I will be alone on this one! and for you to easily want to strike at someone I wonder how you are around fussy pts. especially FEMALES.:uhoh21:

    lisa, the worst thing you can do is let this not-so-well man get the best of you. obviously he has problems and short of a lobotomy, there's nothing much that can be done. but somehow i picture him laughing his butt of at your (or any woman's) reaction so walk away girlfriend.

    Getting back on topic ... I asked a few of the female nurses at work about what they thought regarding this topic. Almost everyone of them thought that women tend to get caught up in the little things, while the men they have worked with let most stuff roll off their back. Not sure why that is, but from my perspective, I would have to agree with them.

    I go now in peace........

    I really, really hope you're kidding.

    I think that men are conditioned/socialized/nurtured to be goal-directed and little girls are conditioned/socialized/nurtured to 'take care'. Nurturing and care-taking were considered 'feminine' occupations -- those that centered on teaching, nursing and being a secretary. Those were your choices back in the day.

    That aside, there's really no simply answer. We're different, men and women, and recognizing that is the essence of equality, IMO. When society values choices more than it clings to its 'traditional values' then young boys and girls will be nurtured and brought up in a way that promotes the value of both genders.

    I love working with men and I find the female gossiping at work distressing. I keep to myself, help when I am able to, and do my work with as much enthusiasm as possible on any given day. Which means that some days are easier than others, but my patients, profession and employer deserve nothing less than my best effort.

    you know, a few months ago my DON called me down to her office. she accused me of acting like a man....she then started to explain that women tend to complain amongst each other and leave it at that; that they (women) don't do anything about it....whereas a man complains about something and is actually proactive in resolving it! well, the DON was actually complaining about me because i acted like a man. that conversation just showed me the mentality i was dealing with.....op said it perfectly; that when people actually like and respect themselves and are confident, then they are not threatened by others and can treat people accordingly. when you believe in yourself, that gives you many less obstacles to deal with.

    [QUOTE=hobbes] .......I think many of you have been too far removed from your biology and psychology classes and want to cling to the belief that everybody is the same and it's just a matter of changing your attitude. Yes, to an extent, but men and women are "wired" differently in many respects. Why is it that so many people were especially appalled at seeing that female MP in Iraq engaging in those horrendous acts? It's because it's not considered natural. Women generally don't have the propensity and inclination to violence that men do.....QUOTE]

    I believe that, even generally speaking, women have as much propensity towards violence as men do. They might not be as physically strong nor be as encouraged by their peers enough to carry out their violent inclinations in the same ways men do, but they still got it. I mean, I sure have seen women be pretty scary during my lifetime and thats why I think so.
