Ladies work...

So, I was working at my desk and, let’s call him Sam, the cleaner, came through to sweep and mop etc. He’s also one of the mechanics in the workshop. He’s a nice guy. As he was working some of the other mechanics wandered and Sam said to them, “Just doing ladies work.” I turned to him and said. “What was that?” His response was to blush and say, “Just talking tough in front of the boys.” The boys all then looked sheepish as men do when confronted by lovely, yet scary, women such as myself. I smiled and said, “It will take years for you all to be as tough as women.” One bloke nodded and said, “Yep, I just do what the wife tells me to do. I don’t want no trouble.”

Men – delightful souls when trained well.
