being a general manager of a late night bar establishment i have been met with a series of both sexes asking to “speak with the manager” only to be met with stunned surprise that a woman of 27 years old could run an establishment. often met with “no, the ACTUAL manager”. Even more amusing to point out my Area Manager is also a female.
The constant inappropriate gropes and men stopping me to try get my attention when working is always frustrating. I’m lucky to have a very female forward team in terms of management and security, we have women feel comfortable enough to come up to us to let us know if there is an issue with guys harassing them or making them feel uncomfortable. Over the years in this industry I’ve learnt how to deal with the pig headish behaviour of men and I’m glad I can help other women who need it in my place of work
