    Been there done this!!

    Me too. Bravo to Pattie for citing this. I survived it and am now doing fine under a new and very much improved suprvisor. It only takes one bad supervisor to falsely destroy your career. Fortunately I met the problem head on and didn’t waiver. Tom Petty once said something like “don’t back down” and I didn’t. I’ll be interested in seeing how many women respond in kind to this post. Or not, you never know.

    It would probably help if I had known name (required) didn’t mean my whole name. That is what I get for trying this in my old age. Now I’ll be interested in seeing how many of the over-50 generation will respond in kind to this post. Or if my old supervisor comments. Or not, you never know. :^) At least I have a misplaced sense of humor about the whole thing.
