After Haley was born, I worked in the office at a trade school. I was the only female in the building (staff and students included) for many years. Is it any wonder I am the way I am? You have to develop one tough skin and a seriously sick sense of humour when working around a bunch of tradesmen.
I shudder at how naive I was. One morning as I was pouring coffee in the staff room, I turned to the group of instructors and asked, "Hey guys, does anyone have a hedge trimmer I could borrow for the weekend? I really have to trim that huge bush......"
That's as far as I got before the room completely erupted in peels of laughter and I was forced to try and remove my goddamn foot from my mouth. Given the chance, I was going to add "bush in front of my house". I wasn't given the chance. There were no chances for further conversation. The peels of laughter followed me all the way back to my office. For the next week, the guys would come into my office and make chainsaw noises, laugh hilariously and leave.
Little did they know I'm a brazilian girl. Ahhh I miss my guys sometimes, they were the most loveable bunch of asses ever.
