...and I'm out of that place. Friday and Monday.

And I'm so, so glad. Yes, being unemployed sucks because of money and associated worries, but you know what also sucks? Having a job that wrecks your mental health.

I'll also be glad to leave the sexism behind. Yeah, today was one of those days where I was once again reminded of just how much our bosses value their female employees. I mean, I've always felt a little bit underestimated, but before they got two new, male apprentices, I didn't know exactly why. Now I do. It's because I'm female, and clearly females just aren't as competent as men. Doesn't matter that the guys come to me if they have questions, nope, by virtue of being male, they are automatically able to do more tasks than I am.

I don't blame it on the guys. Both of them are nice, and we get along really well. I blame it on my bosses who are stuck somewhere in a world where equality of the sexes isn't invented yet.

And you know what's worst about sexism? It doesn't just make you hate the sexist people, it makes you hate yourself. Or rather your gender. I know it's not rational and I shouldn't think like that, but for a moment there, I hated the fact that I'm percieved as female. Which I shouldn't because self-hate is one of the most harmful things in the universe. But that's what sexism (and any kind of stigma, actually) does to you. It makes you hate yourself for what you are.

...but no worries, now I'm back to putting the hate where it belongs: their stupid sexist asses.

Ugh, your bosses sound awful; at least you're almost rid of them.

(And that first picture is perfection.)
