I made a call to a person who works in our City Engineer's office (private firm) who had a question on a street name for a plat. I told him that I was finally able to speak to our street naming person and had a street name for him. He says, "What's his name?" I said "HER name is ..." and he actually said to me "now, don't you think that is a pretty big responsibility for a woman?"
I say "Excuse me?"
Can you believe that jacka$$? I just changed jobs to a smaller town (20k) but it's in a metro of a million person city. Where do these people come from? It was such a nice thing to happen on a friday. I wonder what he thinks of me, a woman working as the City Planner? I guess he wanted me to know, without saying it straight out. oh well, anyone else deal with this?
