After listening to a conversation between several of my coworkers on why there are so few women CEOs, a friend and I came up with several reasons as to why men in general are more successful than women in business. We determined that this is due to several learned behaviors that women exhibit and that society imposes on them.
So here it is…why women are not as successful as men in the business world:
-The idea of a ‘career’ sounds nice until they realize that most work actually sucks
-You usually cannot get a raise by withholding sex.
-An MRS is easier to obtain than an MBA.
-A woman who sits around the house all day watching TV is a ‘housewife’, a man who does the same is ‘lazy’ and ‘shiftless’.
-Most people would rather deal with an actual five-year old than a boss who just acts like one
-Most office conflicts cannot be resolved by shoving a bottle (beer or baby) in the other party’s mouth
-No one ever put in an 80 hour week cleaning the house and cooking dinner
-Any feeling of purpose and self-fulfillment that one receives from earning money is usually offset by the crap you have to go through and put up with to earn it.
-Men can’t get themselves knocked up.
-When you leave a job, you don’t get to keep half the company.
