As I Sat on the Bus # 27: Roxanne Catches a Glimpse of the Glass Ceiling

What a wonderful Thanksgiving we had. Mom and I cooked together while Dad and Sabrina watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and football. I never knew Sabrina liked football and I don’t suspect she did either. She is so much a daddy’s girl she would watch anything just to be near him. It’s what makes having him here so special. I still don’t trust him though. A zebra can’t change his stripes. If he hurts that little sister of mine again there will be hell to pay, I promise.

In the meantime Ms. Senter presented our findings today to the board. They told her they would have an answer for her in a week to 10 days. I’m not sure why it should take so long. To me, it’s a no brainer. The money we will save as a company in ten years would equal a year’s salary of one of those Bozo’s, maybe even two of them.

Personally I believe that if Ms. Senter were a man they would have said “yes” on the spot. That is something for me to think about moving forward. Of course I would not leave this job now, I am just getting started but do I want to give my loyalty and hard work to a group who does not appreciate me simply because of my gender? This is definitely something I need to think about.

I think I will close my eyes and lean my head against this bus window. I’ll catch a quick nap before Brad calls me to make sure I am awake for my stop. I’ll give him my sleepy sexy voice when I answer.
