I worked with a certain individual in a former life who is ... unique. That is the nicest way to put it. In order to protect the innocent (me) I have named him Lousy Larry. I have a treasure trove of wonderful stories of how Lousy Larry drove me insane. This is the first one.
Lousy Larry: You know the project manager for that project is a woman. And she's asking a lot of questions that project managers should know.
Me: Maybe she wants to clarify the information that is being passed around. You know, get everyone on the same page.
Lousy Larry: (ignoring my comment) It is kind of embarrassing that she is asking all of those questions. She is not giving female architects a good name.
Me: That's like saying you are the prime example of the male species and, therefore, all men are idiots.
Lousy Larry stared at me in disbelief that I would talk back to a man and then promptly stormed out of my office.
