Just like the million others who is living under the same sky, I'm just trying to find that significant one to write my own fairy tale stories...

Man, you behaved like a woman!

It is difficult to work in an environment where the management is sexist. It seems as if the skirt is getting in our way of promotion or maybe it makes us look like we are not capable of handling big project. Whatever the case is, I personally felt that the ladies are wearing the pants in my office.

I’m not saying that the male species is more inferior. But the male gender in my office does seem to be lacking in the ‘man’ factor.

Teaching is already difficult in nature without all the politics. It is even more frustrating when one has to play the rules and handles the admin work. It does seem that the male species, too overcome by their competitive nature, are too consumed in the political games to pay attention to anything else. It is as if they are been paid to play games and not to work. They are good at pushing blames or playing ‘taji’ when work is assigned. To make things worse, they can’t even do the work assigned to them simply.

A very good example happened recently. A particular male colleague was asked to photocopy the notes for the whole level as he had forgotten to include the chapter when we sent the notes for print. It sounds fair enough that he has to do the damage control isn’t it?

Well, guess what. He managed to screw up again. The teachers needed the notes to teach the classes but he had not even sent it for print. How difficult can it be to print 2 pages and then placed in the print folder for the printer to print for us?! He managed to come up with a thousand and one excuses on why he can’t do it. I felt like telling him that a good excuse would be that he is incapable.

In the end, the others had to do his work for him. This is not the first time that we had to end up doing his work for him while he happily goes home at 3pm everyday. I really felt like asking him if it is that difficult to stay for one more minute to send the thing for printing?

So much for being a man. Someone please pass him a skirt!
