Maybe I shouldnt say stuff like that but if you would of heard they way she was carrying on and her tone then you may understand a little more. They are just too many times people say crap to me and I sit there in shock and not say anything and regret it later, felt like I needed to say something.
My apologies,you are correct! I have vented on a caller more than once myself

We have had and have women painters.
Women apprentices, women job managers, all women crews even.

I don't know what to say, don't pay much attention to it,
people are entitled to their opinions, but you know,
some are idiots anyway.

Moving on...

Everyone's entitled to their opinion but it would be best if some wouldn't state their's.

That's nice.
they wouldn't work for you anyway.
So that leaves more for the rest of us.
My best two painters are women.

I have a woman employee she has been working for the union for 15 years and helps me out per diam. I have had my share of peoples opinions but believe me or not shes teaches me things all the time. She has a stronger work ethic than my other employee whos a guy. I dont think it matters at all. People are people there are lazzy asses and there are hard workers. It dosent matter if your a woman or a man.

I agree dubin. Only matters whether you can do the job or not.
I have worked on jobssites off and on for 30 years. I rarely had problems, but I always had my 6'3 husband, the boss, to back me! I have run into it more as an owner, with GC's, at HBA meetings, etc!

i love when you get a curve ball like that...i would have said " well, she used to be a man, but with the hormone treatments and vitamins she takes, you can barely tell."

glad you stuck up for your wife. i'm sure she's fast, accurate and consistent. more than i can say for a lot of experienced men i've worked with.

let the lady enjoy her comfort zone and go paint the church with the female priests!
