11 Tips on How to Handle Women Employees
The following is an excerpt from the July 1943 issue of Transportation Magazine. This was quite serious at its time and written for male supervisors of women in the work force during World War II during the 1940s. Obviously, the intent was not to be "funny," but by today's standards, this is hilarious!

For those of you with efficiency issues, pay attention to #8.

There is no longer any question whether transit companies should hire women for jobs formerly held by men. The draft and manpower shortage has settled that point. The important things now are to select the most efficient women available and how to use them to the best advantage.
Here are eleven helpful tips on the subject:
1. Pick young married women. They usually have more of a sense of responsibility than their unmarried sisters. They are less likely to be flirtatious. They need the work, or they would not be doing it. They still have the pep and interest to work hard and to deal with the public efficiently.
2. When you have to use older women, try to get ones who have worked outside the home at some time in their lives. Older women who have never contacted the public have a hard time adapting themselves and are inclined to be cantankerous and fussy. It is always well to impress upon older women, the importance of friendliness and courtesy.
3. General experience indicates that "husky" girls - those who are just a little on the heavy side - are more even-tempered and efficient than their underweight sisters.
4. Retain a physician to give each woman you hire a special physical examination - one covering female conditions. This step not only protects the property against the possibilities of lawsuit, but also reveals whether the employee-to-be has any female weaknesses that would make her mentally or physically unfit for the job.
5. Stress, at the outset,…...

Short Story

...Mr Sticky No one knew how Mr. Sticky got in the fish tank.      "He's very small," Mum said as she peered at the tiny water snail. "Just a black dot."      "He'll grow," said Abby and pulled her pyjama bottoms up again before she got into bed. They were always falling down.   In the morning Abby jumped out of bed and switched on the light in her fish tank.      Gerry, the fat orange goldfish, was dozing inside the stone archway. Jaws was already awake, swimming along the front of the tank with his white tail floating and twitching. It took Abby a while to find Mr. Sticky because he was clinging to the glass near the bottom, right next to the gravel.      At school that day she wrote about the mysterious Mr. Sticky who was so small you could mistake him for a piece of gravel. Some of the girls in her class said he seemed an ideal pet for her and kept giggling about it.      That night Abby turned on the light to find Mr. Sticky clinging to the very tiniest, waviest tip of the pond weed. It was near the water filter so he was bobbing about in the air bubbles.      "That looks fun," Abby said. She tried to imagine what it must be like to have to hang on to things all day and decided it was probably very tiring. She fed the fish then lay on her bed and watched them chase each other round and round the archway. When they stopped Gerry began nibbling at the pond weed with his big pouty lips. He sucked Mr. Sticky into his mouth then blew him back out again in a......

Analytical Essay; Mean Girls 1 and 2

...Plastics" This time "The Plastics" consist of Amanda "Mandi" Weatherly, a rich snobbish girl who lives down the street from Jo; Chastity Meyer, a seemingly slow-witted blond who is known to randomly hook up with guys (even those less popular than she); and Hope Plotkin, a snobbish hypochondriac who seems to suck up to Mandi the most. In Mean Girls 1 Cady is encouraged to join the plastics. Janis and Damian only wanted her to join so Cady would tell them the Plastic’s dark secrets. While in Mean Girls 2 Jo is set to pretty much avoid The Plastics. She then meets Abigail "Abby" Hanover, a tortured artist who is actually neighbors with Mandi (they have been competing since they were little kids because Abby is a lot richer than Mandi's family). Abby tells Jo she is apart of the very small welcoming committee and then a teacher trips, accidentally throwing his shake on Abby. Jo at this point feels very sorry for Abby. Events turn worse in Mean Girls 1 when Cady falls for Regina’s ex-boyfriend, Aaron Samules. When Regina finds out she takes revenge of Cady and takes Aaron back. When Cady finds out that Regina and Aaron are dating again, it goes from a plan to find out dark secrets to a plan to destroy Regina. In Mean Girls 2, so far it is good for Jo when she takes a shop class with a boy named Tyler DuPont, and she begins to have a small attraction to him despite his slight sexism, so she proves she can really be one of the guys by taking over the project. Over time, they......

The Firm

The firm provides them with a BMW, low rate mortgage, sign-on bonus, a cash bonus for passing the bar exam, study aid for the bar exam and continuing education following it, the use of a corporate jet and international accommodations, and it repays all of Mitch's outstanding student loans.

Lizzie Borden

...The murder of Abby and Andrew Borden by multiple ax whacks to the head caused many to believe that Lizzie Borden, the daughter of Andrew Borden, did it. The case ruled ‘Not Guilty” on June 20, 1893. Based on research and evidence, I believe that Lizzie Borden was guilty because of her claimed whereabouts, the ironic poisoning coincidence, and the burning of a dress, which is the opposite of the actual court ruling in 1893. Lizzie Borden and the maid, Bridget Sullivan were the only ones home at the time of the murder of Abby Borden. Bridget was outside washing windows and Lizzie claimed to be downstairs. It’s strange that “she heard no alarming noises”. (Source J) In addition to that, there was no sign of forced entry. If an intruder committed the murders, they would have “had to hide in the house for 90 minutes or departed and then returned without being seen” (Source J) because the 2 murders happened over an hour apart. This would be nearly impossible if Lizzie was downstairs at the time of her stepmother’s murder. At the time of her father’s murder, she claimed to be in the loft of the backyard barn, searching for sinkers for a fishing trip for 15-20 minutes. The police said the loft was very hot and the “also found no footprints”(Source J) which contradicts Lizzie’s statement of where she was at the time of the murder of her father. 2 days prior to the murders, on August 2, 1892, “Abby and Andrew Borden awaken, complaining of stomach sickness”. (Source I) Abby believes......

The Surprise

...“The surprise” Crying Abby was sitting on a wrinkled bed clasping her legs and hiding her head in the knees. Next to her there was a mangled body of what, untill recently, was her favorite doll Nancy. A damned dog violently tore it to pieces quarter of an hour ago. And once a pretty talking, singing and dancing doll was able only to emit broken sounds, jerk and twitch. What is more, a punctured forehead, nose and cheeks, detached half of the arm and torn locks of hair left no chance to Nancy for a bright future among the Abby’s toys. And nobody wanted to get insight into her trouble, everybody was occupied by other things and mostly by her elder sister, who had recently given birth to a child, and all the household was constantly talking about her and her baby, getting ready to their soon discharge from the maternity hospital. In response to Abby’s complaints everyone only instinctively nodded and pronounced: “Not now, honey, not now”. Full of sorrow and resentment the girl had been crying for a long time before she fell asleep with her eyes being red and swollen . At night while sleeping Abby felt her mother come into the room, kiss her forehead and cover her carefully with a blanket. Next morning Abby woke up because of the sounds of fuss, whispering and exclaiming somewhere in the house, and after a while the noise broke off. Getting up from the bed the girl caught sight of Nancy. Bitter feelings came over her again and tears welled up in her eyes. Full of......

Dear Abby

...Minh Dinh SPCH 10 Dear Abby Assignment Dear Abby, My best friend, “Tuan,” recently admitted to me that he wasn’t sure about his gender. He told me with a sincere affection that he was bi-curious, and he wasn’t sure he was completely heterosexual. After hearing his confession, I quietly couldn’t believe his situation. In a moment, I decided that we still be friend forever. I told him that no matter how he was, I still stood right by side with him and that nothing’s going to change the friendship between me and him. However, after few days, I had an embarrassed feeling whenever I hung out with him. No one know his secret, except me, because I am his best friend who he believes the most.

However, at this time, I still don’t believe and can’t accept the real one in him. Is it wrong that I’m still friendly with him? Should I be angry at Tuan? What should I do now in order to escape my awkward feeling and don’t ruin my friendship? Signed, Minh D. Dear Minh D. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. The first thing I’m going to tell you that I am very jealous of you because of your wonderful friendship.
