When was the last time you ran smack up against a stereotype?
I had some yard work to do, couldn’t find either of the two pairs of heavy duty work gloves we have. They’re both sized men’s large, so I thought, “This will give me a chance to find heavy duty work gloves that will fit my girl hands!”
Went to WM…they had all different kinds of heavy duty work gloves. Every…single…one…of…them…were….large. Men’s large. They didn’t even have men’s small.
WTH? Only large, burly men do hard physical labor? Only large, burly men would be hauling branches and bricks and metal and slinging bales of hay?
Oh, they have girl gloves. Cloth girl gloves, with flowers and shit printed on them. For working in the garden, I suppose. Who wears gloves working in a garden, anyway? There isn’t anything in a garden that’s going to hurt you, except rose thorns, and foo foo cloth gloves won’t help you there!!
All I want are some pretty, purple, heavy duty, swede work gloves with lions on them that will fit MY hands! Is that too much to ask?
Snap on doesn’t make purple tools, either. I know. I asked.
Will the stereotypes ever end?
