And eat it, woman! Now follows what will at first sight appear a chauvanistic post causing cries of shock horror from the fair sex. When the subject of equality, or inequality, surfaces logic appears to be tossed out of the window by the working female section of society.
Od One sorry, Odone accepts that women have a choice, unlike men, whether to become a full-time parent or to follow a career. So don't, please ladies, whinge when it finally hits home that years earlier, you feel you made the wrong choice.
Whinge No 1: "I had no idea where our mop was kept......I now know where the mop hangs and the dusting cloth, too. I an intimately familiar with the inside of my utilities cupboard." Odd really, as in my experience women very quickly learn where their clothes cupboard is and become intimately aware of the insides.......!
Whinge No 2: "The workplace is designed for full-time (make that 24/7) employees. It has no flexibility to allow for the tug of apron strings." And does not an employer have a right to expect a full days work from his/her employees, so that the company can flourish?
Whinge No 3: "I went [ to Oxford] to learn how to fulfill my dreams. And, let me tell you, these did NOT include how to fold a shirt in four seconds flat or how to iron the perfect crease down linen trousers." Likewise I expect men went to Oxford to fulfill their dreams, which did not include learning how to change a nappy or bottle-feed a baby!
I can but echo a cry from men, through the ages - 'Make your mind up woman, what do you want?'
Ok ladies, I have had my say - over to you!
