    I work with a travel agency at work when I am arranging flights and whatnot as part of my job. I've been in this position for several years and have met all the agents, so talking with them is usually fun. There are a few that are just business, but there's one that is just a chore to deal with, and he's the only guy. He's just not that nice and doesn't seem to care about the job. There is also a woman that is like that, but I'd rather talk to her than him. I'm sexist.

    Are they both the same race as you? The same age? You might be racist and ageist too, y'know.

    come in, lie down... tell me more...


    how does this make you feel? are you aroused when this woman calls?
    perhaps angered by the male - by his complacency? do you often wish it was Friday? when did you first feel this way? icon_biggrin.gif

    Careful. Ask how much BodyWork charges per hour first.

    Doesnt sound sexist. From what I see, its cause hes a chore and not that nice. If there was a guy there that was really cool Im sure you wouldnt hate dealing with him.

    Because the woman has a more deferential attitude when talking to a man like you? I bet if she were more condescending you'd prefer talking to the guy.

    I think it comes down to as we are growing up it's ingrained into men to be patient with women constantly.. I do the same thing, two people very similar I"ll tolerate the female a lot more then the male..

    same with everything though, I'll handle a lot more physical pain when it's administered from a women then a man..

    How is that sexist? You're attracted to men so naturally you're going to give more slack to the man than to the woman.

    you should still be really nice with him. maybe try to get him to lighten up. maybe the reason he hates his job so much is because people don't make an effort with him, and so he started becoming bitter thus making other people want to talk with him less. lol it's a big cycle. you should just be super nice to him regardless of how he talks back, you never know what effect your kindness will have.

    the other day, i went thru a drive-thru and the lady sounded like she really hated being there. i just talked to her with a very "happy" voice, asked how she was and how her night was going, and although she seemed taken off guard, she responded in a very appreciative tone. after she took my order, i said thank you so much. when i drove up to the window, i paid for my order, she gave me my food and i said thanks again (called her by name) then told her to have a great weekend. she had the BIGGEST smile i have seen on a person and she had a look like she couldn't believe what was happening, lol.

    it was fun, felt good to turn her night around

    Timberoo,

    This is a great suggestion from txguy1605! Sometimes the smallest things make the biggest difference.

    ...we recommend though, that you avoid french kissing. icon_wink.gif

    I'm always good with the agents, our account has quite a few type A's and they can be assholes, so I'm always nice and patient, especially when I get someone that doesn't know our account well. I've tried saying stuff like "How was your weekend?" and making small talk, but no luck.

    I do recognize that there is a part of me that just likes dealing with the women more, and I that is sexist of me.

    At first glance I thought this thread's title read, "I'm sexiest."
    I entered for the purpose of totally agreeing with you Timberoo. icon_redface.gif
    But I read your op, you are not sexist you just get along better with women. You don't think men are inept or sub par due to their sex so you are not sexist.

    I have been working in a workforce now for 15 years that is something like 85% women.

    I now long to go back to the old days of being in a workforce that is 99.999 men. At lest with men, you can deal with it, and have a beer together at the end of the day.

    Women just love to hold onto that grudge, and many times don't even want to talk about it, because they don't want to let go.

    On the days I get to work with men, it's almost stress free.
