Never have I been more offended, shocked and furious in my life.
There are a few things I have come to expect about job hunting. Long hours of filling out applications and very few returned calls. I have not, however, expected blatant sexism when dropping off a resume at a prospective place of employment.
Yes, sexism. Today I was told by the attendant at "Modern Ages Tobacco and Gifts" in Athens, GA that "we aren't looking to put a female on night shift because we've been robbed in the past." He went onto explain how "it isn't a personal thing against me, but the owner wouldn't put his own wife up here and he wouldn't want to do that to anyone else's wife or girlfriend either."
I barely contained my outrage as I left the store. Never mind I worked 4pm-10pm just up the street at Rite Aid for goddess knows how many years.
And yet "the area is dangerous".
I was livid and the first thing I did was send a letter of complaint to my local free newspaper. For an insult to me as a woman is an insult to all women.
I will not stand for such an insult, good intentions be damned.
