This past week I have been called at least four different names from various men. A disparate cross section of people I know in various capacities. Not sure yet if this is going to be an essay about me, about how men see and treat women in the world, or what it’s like to be a “woman in a man’s world”. Come along for the ride…
“Sweet Pat” – This came from a contractor with whom I regularly deal. He does great work and we have a nice working relationship. He called me this in the context of a return call to come and tweak some work done on my home. Here, I regard the label as a success because I feel like it represents my ability to get what is my due, and do so in a nice manner.
Thanks for reading!
