Something happened today that made me mad. I have to let it out or I may explode. So, welcome to my rant of the week. Apparently, if you don't have children and you work, you're just a warm body. You're not a person. If you're a woman who doesn't have children and you have a job, people don't think that you should be able to come in late, leave early, take sick leave, use vacation days, go on trips, have a decent schedule or have a life outside of work. And when you try to stand up for yourself, you're told that "you don't have a family to feed, you wouldn't understand." Actually, I do. My family may be less than traditional, but nevertheless, there are bills to be paid, mouths to feed, things that happen, days off that are needed, etc. Also, mind you, this wasn't exactly my choice. I would love to be a stay at home mom, but I'm not, so don't punish me for that. Seriously. Just because my life is different doesn't mean that it's wrong or bad. So there.
