Dear Life,

Hi. I got that big promotion that I asked you for. I got the job I wanted. I got most of the money I wanted. I got the responsibilities I wanted.Fuck you.

But here's the deal, LIFE: you gave me a job where only a finite number of women hold positions of authority in the USA. In NYC, that translates to abour less than 2%. But I usually like that. It's worked in my favor until now - until I took a position of noticibilaty, as a woman doing work - good work.

Until a man, that is your junior, followed in your literal footsteps to be exact, asks for your career advice over drinks, then drunkenly tells you, you're only where you are because you are hot. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU. And when other top suppliers and employees around you agreed or abstained , you broke me.

Did I mention FUCK YOU!?!?! I brought my last property up by almost a million dollars last year, and I GUARANTEE I will do the same in my very new HIGH recognition, position. FUCK YOU. I have Gigantic Blue Eyes. Really Long Blonde Hair, DDD boobs and a Southern Drawal that can both melt and freeze ice, but I am the smartest mother fucker you will EVER negotiate with.

Get over the fact that your predecessor is better than you, So, little man, next time you insult me by saying I am hot and that is why I am where I am, and then asking me to suck your dick - - - please forgive when I rip it the fuck off and remind you where you are.

I have commission to collect, but tonight I can't help crying at how far behind I am as a woman....

I can't help but want to cry about how far behind our society still is in regards to successful women. Damn it. What the hell.

it's not "society" that is behind, it's those lame-o penis bearers. I say we start confiscating them until they learn their lesson...

*evil laugh*

I'm (almost) kidding :)

Fuck the corporate world.

And Blondie: i really think you should actually rip his dick off and mushroom stamp the fuck out of him with it.

Three out of four of my bosses are women, and I think they're pretty cool and deserve to be where they are. Not every man is a dog. They give us normal guys a bad rap.

Kind of off-subject: Do the girl-power girls hate the old-fashioned wooing of women? You know, holding doors open, pulling out chairs, etc?

No. It's always nice to be treated special and respectfully. It's flattering to even the most badass of independent bitches.

Absolutely not. I'm dating the dude who wrote the book on chivalry and man. I think i like it. It also helps suppress my tendencies of being bitchy, because it makes you feel TWICE as bad about it afterwards, because the guy is an angel.
