There are some people on here taking this a little too serious.

Of course. Women don't have a sense of humor.

Kidding!

Oh boy, you've never worked in a male dominated restaurant then. Those boys can be such drama llamas! I can only assume its similar in other fields. Doesn't matter which gender you're talking about, if you lack class, then it can't be helped. I don't think any field would be much different if it were dominated by the opposite gender.

@The_Optimist

You complain about catty, passive-aggressive nurses? I've read more than a few of your posts around the forum...it seems you may be the biggest cat of them all.

Anecdotes all as far as I am concerned. Yes, some women are catty at times, also some are fair, focused, smart hard working, etc, etc. some men also have some of these same qualities, both good and bad. I work in a small unit and the majority of the nurses are women ( I'm a man) and I N E V E R have seen anything even close to what is mentioned in some of these posts. I'm not saying it isn't out there but there's a lot of B.S. that gets put out by guys too.

From my experiences with males, less squabbling more work and productivity. With females, it feels like I'm in high school---thug mentality---some are great but some are just catty or backstabbers.šŸ˜«šŸ™

In nursing it's not fun because it's destructive to the patient care. I can't handle nonsense.
