You have got to be kidding!

January 25, 2011

I just now hung up the phone from a man who told me I was lying when I told him I was a “handywoman,” owned the company, and could help him with his repair issue. 

Have you ever had an issue like this?  If so, please share your story.

    Sounds like something you can talk about on the radio!

      You bet. I was so shocked I didn’t know what to say to him. I laughed after I hung up.

    Fifteen years ago in the US we had a “handywoman” who did everything! I didn’t think there were guys like that out there any more. Maybe he’ll call you back after he makes a mess of his project!

      Awesome! I have several women who work with me and we always run into some people who are surprised but this is the first time someone has been so rude about it. It’s been a long time since I have been speechless but he got me. He really was offended. We have had people ask if the women are there to “clean up” when we bring in a mixed crew. I guess that’s about the same thing.
