Very true on that last point! In my last job I actually tried to make myself be more chatty around the female supervisors/ managers because if I was "too quiet" they could perceive me as standoffish and make false inferences about what I'm thinking. Whereas male supervisors/ managers would either strike up conversation themselves, or else just leave me to get on with what I'm doing. But when two or more female supervisors are gossiping away, I feel like a spare prick at a party, coz they won't try to include me in the conversation unless I practically insert myself into the middle of it. One on one they'd usually converse with me just fine, but put them together and their social blinders go right up lol. It wasn't a huge problem or anything, but it was an interesting quirk I observed on multiple occasions across several jobs

Worded that in an odd way. Basically, they become emotional and threatened. Then they have a chip on their shoulder towards me.
wow all these fucking morons who would rather work for somebody else than work for themselves. no wonder society is as fucked up as it is and our economy is shit. people would rather make someone else rich rather than themselves.
