    Is it mandatory for members to display the space between their thighs?

    Or is it something that just happens naturally? Because it happens here too, maybe you lot have a sort of masonic lodge or something.

    There's a deeply misogynist culture in the union and in the trade. There are hardly any women in non-administrative roles. One of my colleagues, who was hired at the same time is me, is the first woman of color to ever work on our international's staff.

    I meant from the back. I sometimes think that elevator repairmen are required by ancient lawful custom to wear trousers that display at least four finger-widths of buttcrack.

    Nah there's not too much of that. There's a formal dress code in the international HQ anyway.

    I found something out about a former coworker today. I'm even angrier at him now than I was before.

    It did show up around 8pm as we were headed off on a night walk so she could tell me all about how bad the day was. She really liked it and she showed the card to her coworkers. It is the shortest love note I've ever written and apparently the most well received. It just said: For my hero.
    Anything you can share? Sounds like there's an interesting story there.

    Can you please elaborate more about this issue? To be angry at a coworker is one thing but to former coworker that sound like (s)he did a conspiracy :undecide:

    You should do it ! ;) Sometime I think we should be whooped like that too. It is no pleasure answearing complaints calls daily. It is like a wave - we receive complaints here at the office , we punish them (in most cases cut a 100PLN from they payment) but still they don't seem to care because like I said earlier most of them are crappy paid outsourcing/part time couriers. That is why I think the future of parcel delivery is in drones ;)

    "we punish them" - I meant the drivers , not the clients :D I really need to review my posts more often before hitting the submit button :blush:

    I honestly find it amazing that it's taken you, of all people (and I don't mean that in a bad way), years to get angry enough about this to do something like that.

    I can't see that working here. How would a drone deliver something to an apartment building?

    :think: Maybe there could be designated drone delivery zones on the rooftops - drones could land on them and send a notification. If the system works maybe building admins would install a small elevator so that the receiver do not need to climb all the way up to the roof to get her parcel.

    Or delivered to a lock box outside the building and they send you a code to open it.

    Where would I have a porch? I live in an apartment building, and there are two ways to get in here: Either through the door, which leads to a hallway, or via the balcony which is far enough above the ground that if I fell off it, I'd probably break my neck.

    And don't say the drone could deliver to the balcony. I don't use my balcony because A. Mobility issues; it's unsafe for me; and B. The pigeons took it over last summer and it's full of pigeon crap. Also, in the winter we're not supposed to open the windows or balcony doors because there's a danger of the pipes freezing (they run along the length of the outside walls in the living room and bedrooms). So that's potentially October-April when we wouldn't be able to get deliveries via the balcony anyway.

    And that's supposing the apartment even has a balcony. All of them do in this building, but not all apartments have balconies.
