    Default The Only Man in the Office?!

    I was wondering if any of the guys are the only male in the office? Or at least in the midst of an estrogen ocean in the workplace?

    If so, how well do you get along with the women?

    At first I was when I was working, but then they hired my buddy and it got to be less of an oysterfest.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    We only have 4 guys in the whole school I work at. Only one that works in my wing. A little tip, mark your calendar for PMS time and either stay far away, or bring the women some chocolate. Then you shouldn't have any problems!

    For a while I was the only guy in my section at a ratio of 15:1. Got treated very well. Never had any problems but, man, some of them had some serious problems with each other.

    I work at a non-profit, and about 85% of the 250 employees are women.

    Being in HR Management makes it very interesting - women absolutely relate and behave differently from men. Not worse, not better, but there are definitely things that have to be taken into consideration here that you wouldn't have to in a male dominated workplace.

    Small example - we provide residential treatment services and we're closing one of our programs - all of our programs are here on site. The program was very small, and the closing is timed so that nobody is losing their job, and no residents are being moved (they were leaving anyway). There is literally NO adverse effect of this closing - because of new construction we're gaining a bed, nobody laid off, only one or two employees even have to transfrer to another program, which is on the same campus. Yet it was this whole emotional thing when the announcement was made, there was this careful timing of the announcement to make sure certain staff heard first, the staff meeting went for hours and everyone was crying, etc.

    In a male dominated workforce, that announcement gets made immediately and everyone just shrugs. Sure, I can understand some sentimental feelings from the staff, but give me a break.

    I've learned a lot, but there are times it is SO aggravating.

    Same here. In my department of 8, I'm the only guy. I LOVE IT.

    OK so it seems to happen a lot. So my next question is where the hell are all the men?!

    All the other departments at work have more guys or its about 50-50. Somehow mine ended up with none before this guy I work with and I moved into it in Feb. Its weird. Makes me wonder did all these catty (because YES, they are) women chase the men out! lol

    I am now. Me and three woman. When i first came here it was 3 guys and one woman. They're taking over!!

    My last job had 70 women and 4 men. That was crazy. I prefer to work around men, those women stab each other in the back the first chance they get.

    There's seven of us in our office and only 2 dudes (including myself). Gotta love it! We all get along great anyhow. They really are some of the best people I know. Sometimes that's the only thing that keeps me at this job. Plus, the girls are pretty easy on the eyes!

    Holy smokes, aint that the truth. I used to work with 12 women and one other guy (my boss) who was out of the office a lot. I would pretty much detach from most of the banter with them. They would be syrupy sweet in front of others, but then you'd see office doors close and two or more women whispering about one of the others. They were harsh!
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?
