Inspired by ZG's Story
A few years ago I had a scoping meeting to attend in a male dominated society/nation. As part of my punishment for being a woman and daring to attend a business meeting, they decided to cancel the day meeting and instead have a dinner meeting. Sounded great to me... until I showed up at the "restaurant", which was actually a bar that featured no food and half-naked lady waitresses and bartenders that served us in panties and a man's button down white shirt, unbuttoned of course.
The gentlemen at the table proceeded to stick their faces between inappropriate places on the waitresses and make perverted jokes about women for the entire night. We did not discuss business at all. I stuck it out. Had a beverage. Made nice-nice and then left after the guys were all wasted and drooling on themselves.
Edit: I should add that I had to travel 4,000 miles over 15 hours to attend this meeting... each way.
