I mean, who would want to work with someone who thinks like this?
I just choose the lifestyle I want first, before I choose my work. Lifestyle first means that I turned down entry-level bullshit jobs in favor of playing professional beach volleyball. Not because I was dying to have all my friends think I was a lunatic, but because I couldn’t believe people expect you to do mindless work after earning a college degree.
And just to prove how the old-school, old-boys network has no place in the modern workplace, they offered her this advice:
Here’s what my boss’s boss’s boss said: “You should write for Lifestyles. That is more women oriented.”
Disappointing, but not unexpected. It just goes to further prove the theory that practically every corporation remains home to such deep-seeded, flawed, and ridiculous mores and cultural crapola, that it’s going to be a terribly long road before we see anything change, if ever.
As always, we continue to wish Penelope luck. And anxiously look forward to her next incarnation.
