Default What do you think of women that cry on the job?

I heard on the radio that 39% of women admitted that they have cried in front of their boss.

I was a helicopter flight instructor pilot for 20 years.
When we got our first female pilot, she made the TV and print news.
When I "failed" her on her first flight examination, she began to cry.
That's when I decided I would retire.

completely unprofessional and inexcusable. I have dealt with this in the past with a female employee who would cry everytime she did something wrong. I let her go explaining that I needed someone who was emotionally stable and could do the job properly. ironically the female who replaced her did the same thing and her employment was short lived.

We have four women in our office, with a couple new ones coming and going thru the years.
Every one of them has cried at one point.




























And no, it had nothing to do with my sexual advancments.

It was always afterward then?

I think every clerical female I've had has cried, sniffled, or the like at some point. Only two professionals (i.e. analysts, technicians, or engineers) that I can recall.

I think it is a minipulation thing...and I think it holds women back from being paid and promoted as much as men.




And No, in over 30 years of working, I have never cried at work.

It's a proven fact that woman are more emotional by nature...not that some use it (even subconsciously) as manipulation..they probably do.

But, if one of the girls that worked for me pulled that shit they wouldn't get much sympathy from me...I don't pay you to cry...I pay you to work.

I made an old boss cry on about a weekly basis. I hated her, and it was fun. Then she got fired and all was well.
