  • Grrrrrrrr!why are they(the normal ones,not us peace lovin hippy type)so feking aweful and bitchy...work related...get a feking life or get some cock,sort ya selves out.....uj said working with men is as bad,but i work better with blokes xx

  • Is this a trap? :D


    It’s swings and roundabouts. Sometimes working with women is a blessing, sometimes not. Same can be said for working with blokes.
    A mate quit his job last year. Reason he gave. “He couldn’t handle the tough Male, chauvinistic, sexist, racist attitude, comradely during the van share drive out to jobs. The pussy lived under his mums pinafore until he got this job. I wonder if some cock would do him any good. :reddevil:

  • I have personally worked in construction/haulage/agriculture most of my life. I have always enjoyed the camaraderie & banter on sites etc. Women in general seem much more prone to bitching about each other & gossiping about anybody & everybody. Couldn't do with it myself.

    Women have a completely different attitude & outlook on life to men in my opinion.

    That said tho, thank god women exist, otherwise I wouldn't have any clean plates or socks by now...👍😁

  • no trap..lol..just out of practice in working with women..ie ignore them..i try talking about sensible stuff ,like which trees in the school grounds look like they may need some work,and the moon phases and what the owl we can hear when we go on fag break is and all they do is stare and carry on talkinfg about £400 hand bags!..but this was bitchy criticism about my work,which was total shite!..il make sure im on ignore setting tonight 😊xx

  • Bloody people is what I often think,though thank goodness there are some great ones or I would have to try even harder to avoid them.


    I will have you know Hun,that I would not think twice about buying a 400 quid handbag !!



    If it had 500 quid inside it ;-)

  • the one with the 400 quid one has 10 so she told me..iv got 2 ,1 was £10 but thought that was overpriced..but was for a wedding...the other is a walking day bag..rohan dont ya know..£1 charity shop xx

  • Funny because I've worked in factories most of my life even when contracting. The blokes are usually full of shit or just talking about the new car or the next expensive holiday or these fucking Alexa type gadgets whilst the women are, apart from a few exceptions, generally better to work with and talk to. Yeah ok there are the bitches but blokes can be just as bad..


    Ok part of that is taking the time to talk to them (or listen in quite a few cases as it seems that all some of them actually want is someone to vent to) Once a handful of them talk to you the rest seem to accept you..

    Of course if you just want stereotypical look at her tits type conversations electricians are the ones to hang around with although I've found (again generalising) that quite a few of the lesbians here are quite happy discussing attributes of both others and themselves..


    The main advantage of having worked with loads of women is that when you are younger and out with all your mates who all work with blokes none of them have a fucking clue how to talk to them. I've started many conversations for mates with the women of their choice in exchange for beers...

  • Since working in a all Male environment (coal mine) I adapted to a certain unique one sex culture, where everything was on the table around menfolks. From then on I learned to (bite my tongue.) respect the unknown female creatures when in their working space. In later years & working in forestry/countryside management alongside male and female office staff/colleagues, I assumed all were equal and approachable in a pc way. If I had to work for long periods with anyone I didn’t respect/value/like. I’m sure the person and conversations would do my head in.

  • I love working alone and not being bothered by anyone except the singers and musicians that I sometimes have lurking in the background :-)


    I used to work in the charcoal making sector of a rural willow centre in somerset and it was my job to collect the wood and cut it into the artist sized pieces that we sold. I cant remember the number,but because of the quality of the charcoal we produced,we had cornered about 80 percent of the worlds market,so I was kept busy all the time.

    In the next room to me were the girls who packed everything into the metal boxes and sorted out the different sizes before it went into the kiln and i will say that they were without a doubt the most fun people I have ever had the privilage to work alongside.


    Very local and very somerset they were and their way of talking was hilarious at times in both content and accent.


    I always remember one of them saying that when she fancied a bit with her husband she would say to him in her thick accent "come eer and let I love thee' and that still makes me giggle today when I think back :-)


    Have helped male friends on jobs and on renovations and that is cool as they are friends,but other than that I have often found other men in the workplace to be very competitive and challenging,and personally I do not want to spend my time around people where a constant pissing contest is in place. I hope that one day they find happiness and serenity in their lives !!

    anything is possible,that my friends is a mathematical certainty ;-)

  • most of my life i ve worked with blokes, at college the engineering course was all lads bar one lass in the year above and she just joined in with the banter.


    but the last 25 years i ve worked in construction its been a hotbed of sexist well generally ist tabloid place of work. I miss some elements of those days the tea breaks no phones and conversation at those times. I dont miss the breaking down of everyone and mild bullying of everyone,


    Now i just try to be grown up avoid talking about sex, realtionships, and try not to get involved in site politics, if someone asks me or draw me into a slag off fest i wont do it, i say that between you and them i ve even had families on jobs trying to get me into a bitch fest as well and that is like a bucket of tnt.


    I ve found lasses esp electricians work well and i hate to say it as a possible sexist comment lasses are better at lighter jobs, electrician, plumber, tiling decorating


    Hate to say it unless there a butch 14 stone woman they dont really suit labouring or heavy work like building etc.

    in fact no one in there right mind likes labouring, but when women come moaning to me about thats to heavy for me can you move it and they struggle with wheelbarrows full of gear, i think if that was a lad i d say do it yourself thats what your paid for, but because its a woman i help out.


    When a womans on site men generally are better behaved better mannered it sometimes kills conversation but when im busy i am not to bothered about talking rubbish.


    Maybe id struggle if the lass was drop dead gorgeous you would find the men flirting and trying to out man each other, but generally if everyines in work wear they look the same baggy trousers fleeces etc, so everyone works.

  • i suppose im prob just having a bit of a grump cus i so miss doing the job that this late in life ,iv realised its what i love doing,and being stuck in an overheated indoor job is to me horrible...iv looked but theres sod all in this area in most types of work apart from caring or cleaning...thought of starting up myself but with rules,regs,dbs,insurance,tooling ,dont think its possible...gone are the days of doing mrs smiths garden to help her out in her advanced year,to get a few £ to get by xx

  • If you love doing that kind of work, the rules, regs etc aren’t all that difficult to overcome.
    What is your business idea? Maybe we could encourage you to have a go. Gardening for instance, clients like to form a longterm relationship. Once you establish that, word of mouth soon gets you more work. I know a couple who started their own gardening business in the last two years. Both have different approaches, and both are getting work. One thought buying tools would create work, but 2ndhand tired ride on mowers are temperamental. He’s on his 5th ride on mower already, but cuts more lawns with a conventional petrol lawnmower. The other gardener bought basic tools and uses his saw and electric battery drill just as much.

    Trouble is are you prepared to do the rough work for mrs smith, ie digging the flower beds shoveling tons of horse manure and compost then barrowing it to the beds in the rain, mowing the lawn in baking hot sun.


    Its not all snipping a few shrubs people like to see a lot done and the rough with the smooth and what gets gardeners backs up is when they are just left woth the rough.


    Try working for a gardening firm it would maybe be an eye opener, you would maybe find you would enjoy it. and learn skills.


    Personally id hate it, its hard work on your knees weeding and generally nowadays it rains all the time or you get burnt to a crisp in summer.


    Try an old school nursery or plant place that way you get to know all the plant names diseases, nutricion etc, and that way you get to meet your mrs smiths needing a few plants snipping and you get to look really clever knowing all those latin plant names.


    The easiest job going in my opinion is decorating, your in the dry most of the time you cant do the job if it rains, and it basicly consists of sanding papering and painting and its a job you can do as an old person as when you get slower people still pay for a good job.


    but if your really keen on gardening see whats about, but remember its a seasonal job, and if its a wet summer its a pain, but the many good summers i guess its quite satisfying.

  • If I am one day working somewhere nearby to you and Uj on a gardening job,I would throw a bit of work your way :-)

    Maybe one day I will be back in the uk travelling around and if I do I shall create work opportunities around the the island where I may need help from time to time !!

    Is it you does dry stone walling too?😊

  • RM my BIL does it part time. Hes got a load of gear, a good chunk of money comes from his tree work at weekends but he also does a few lawns. Cheap petrol mower from the auction in town and he charges £15 a lawn. Hes stacked out in the week with them, so many hes turning them down in summer. Also got his name down with age concern so they recommend him for a lot of the sheltered houses etc. Obviously insurance etc for the last bit but when he started it was lawns and cash only. 2 a day for 5 days is £150 in your hand minus petrol.

  • For a few years now LocalAuthorities have been clamping down on unofficial sole traders undertaking tree/gardening work. How effective these investigators are is anyone’s guess. How much man time the LA’s put into policing cash in hand/unregistered/ uninsured craftsmen gardeners/odd jobs man I don’t know. There is certainly a market for female gardeners.
    Some good advice been posted above. The going rate for a skilled gardener is around £20 per hour. I specialised in hedge maintenance and I ended up with more work than I needed, eventually I could build up a route which allowed for seasonal travelling with guaranteed work on route. Beauty about specialising on hedgerows is the time off durning the nesting season. :)
