My childhood/early teens days had no computer
my early childhood had no TV. One of our entertainment activities was taking turns reading a book aloud to one another, Sounds weird now, but we loved it. I remember once reading a sad part where everyone broke down in tears, and I had to finish the chapter because the others were crying too much.
/tales from the olden days
I missed the work but computer technology is a whole new world in 15 years
Most of my knowledge is too outdated. I can't even talked shop with hubby these days
He is a system architect and his company provides software in retails.
It's not culture shock. It's I needed to work harder and better than my male coworkers and still, lots of my customers would only give me a pat in the head. They (the male bosses) were not rude to me, they were polite to women and tolerate me. They hear my words but were not listening.
Men are so good at tuning women out. Even women automatically think a man will have more technical knowledge than a woman, I am glad not to fight this battle anymore. And somehow it's cumulative. Nthe first 100 times aren't as bad as the second 100 and then by the time it's reached 1,000, it's really tiresome.
It seems to me that young men are more resistant to hearing from women than older men, but I could be wrong. The good thing was that once they we in big trouble, they were keen to get my help.
