"Well, that's fine for you, young man. I still can't see why you've put it off for so long. Maybe there's something wrong with your brain. But, never mind. You're still just as selfish as ever. I want you to pick yourself up, and march right down to that pub you visit, round up all your friends and tell them how wrong they are. Then motor down to that tea shop I was telling you about and spend the afternoon writing nice little apology letters to all your mothers. Show them to Miss Wilkerson, and don't you dare move until she approves them, or I'll give you all six of the best on your selfish little backsides.
"And while you're there, make sure you get your first crochet lesson from dear old Miss Wilkerson. She'll report to me on your progress. Now, aren't you glad you came to me with your itsy-bitsy little problem?"
Is Colny Hatch still operational? If I can't get out of this style of writing, I'll probably have to pay an extended visit.
Where are respectful children? I don't object to mischievous, or rambunctious kids, that's always happened. But pulling a gun on a teacher, or hitting her, or having sex in the classroom?

In all fairness I should indeed have lowered my expectations of my coworkers at my initial job.

To begin, welcome to my personal rant.
For the last three years I have worked in an environment where women outnumber men at least 5 to 1. Over these years I have found myself to be the go to scapegoat for anything and everything in the workplace whether I was present or not. The things I am blamed for have ranged from extremely trivial to outright illegal and possibly grounds for defamation of character. The one common factor is that I was the only male present at the time when the issue was being addressed.
Examples include; not answering an incoming phone call to the workplace on days which I was not even present at the workplace, improper inventory keeping of merchandise which arrived before I began working at current location, not signing off on paperwork in other departments, "planting" drugs on persons (female), and "stealing" merchandise by ringing up sales under the associate numbers of others (female) for the incorrect price.
Today presented a prime example of this behavior. I was in a computer lab when suddenly music begins playing from a computer in my general area. The woman, whose computer was obviously playing the music turns to me and tells me, does not ask but commands me, to turn my music off. I respond informing her that it can not possibly be from my computer because my volume is muted and the drafting software which I have running does not include any features which allow for music to begin playing.
This was not acceptable to her and so she proceeds to make her way over to my terminal and verify for herself that my computer was muted and no audio files were being accessed. Having proven my innocence I stand up and walk over and mute her computer at which point the music ceases to play.
This brings about the all too familiar female's response of not admitting or apologizing for accusing me, but rather making some snide comment calling me a jerk.
Ladies, what gives?
