(Thanks to Matt Filar, who says "I would like to go on record as stating that I do not agree with any of this.")

Wait a minute, let me write this down... I'm gonna be doing a lot of the hiring and other odd jobs once we move back in, 'cause the wife will probably have more important things on her mind...

And the word "chauvinism" had not yet been added to the English dictionary in 1943.

Great Scott the Frist!

No. 11:

"Get enough size variety in operators’ uniforms so that each girl can have a proper fit. This point can’t be stressed too much in keeping women happy."

Current variation: Does this uniform make my butt look big?

I could see my grandfather writing this.

No. 2

"Older women who have never contacted the public have a hard time adapting themselves and are inclined to be cantankerous and fussy..."

Sez who?

(corrects spelling of name)

Okay, that made me laugh. I'm in good spirits today thankfully, due to tidying my hair and applying lipstick.

Cantankerous, are you by any chance related to Grouchy Woman?

"Get enough size variety in operator’s uniforms so that each girl can have a proper fit. This point can’t be stressed too much in keeping women happy.” And shoes. We really like shoes.

*^5s Steve H for a GMTA moment.*

Whatever you do, don't let Cat see this!

Uh, thanks, I *think* ...

(frantically trying to find both *^5s and GMTA in the Acronym file...)

they made a movie of the article: A Meager (income) of Their Own"

^5 - high five
GMTA - great minds think alike

I'd love to see what they'd have come up with if the 1943 Woman had written one of these about hiring men....

....and if you think I'm touching this one, you're smoking crack

And "'husky girls', those who are just a little on the heavy side, are more even tempered and efficient than their underweight sisters."
Well, that just leaves me pretty nearly speechless...

Desk Dive---they would have had to be allowed to own businesses first.

Sorry! That would be "Diva". But Desk Diving would be fun if a sufficient crowd were available.

i'm glad to see that Matt doesn't agree in any way with this. Otherwise, this cranky old menopausal woman with a large caliber, semi-automatic weapon could get really, really pi$$y, because everyone knows that's how older women get. (especially when i can't apply fresh lipstick and fix my hair periodically throughout the day).

wicked, I'd be right behind you with my machete.

Wicked and Sioxie - you'll also have the cranky non-menopausal women with you too. Very VERY cranky, as seen in this Sat. Nite Live sketch from the weekend:

Once a Year

(warning: this video may be disturbing to males)

LOL DavCat! Hilarious!

Cranky, WTF you mean by cranky?
