Owner Boss did something earlier that made me twitch (not visibly.) I had made a mistake on the plans because we were hauling ass to get them out the door. He called me out on it, which is fine. When I make mistakes, I learn from them. I was unclear on what he was calling me out on, so I was trying to explain my thought process in a calm, professional manner. He explodes at me with "GIRL... I mean, lady, look here" and then proceeds to actually explain my mistake. I get it, I look young. Yes, I probably appeared dense while he was being unclear. That doesn't give him the right to do what he did. I'm going to ignore it for the time being until I can figure it out. It's not the first time he's made little "slips" like that, but this was the most egregious. I'm used to west Texas. Everyone is Honey, Sugar, Sweetie, or Babydoll. I get that calling women "girls" isn't that far behind us. But there's a difference between vernacular and what felt like almost a slur (I'm not sure he meant it that way, but that's sure as hell how it felt.) I can't run it up the chain, he's top of the food chain. His name's on the freaking building.
No announcement yet.
