It sounds like you could write a book about your experiences there. Across the street from Location B is a bar that has a lot of riff-raff. Let me just say the police earn their pay from that bar alone.

That was an honest job and a valuable lesson in human nature,

and perhaps there's a story or two that you've written - or will write - that is rich with authentic detail and a scenario your readers can see bacause you know the material. Amazing what can come of just doing your best to keep on keepin' on.

Poor job really Kabu after going to your special school. I bet there are plenty of jobs you could do today Chiropodist  £30 half an hour. Electrician £50 an hour, or even a gardener say about £20 per hour. Pole dancer ?? Stripper ??  . No! How about a dog walker? I cannot remember you telling this story in the last hundred years. You should have learned Sheep Shearing.

I can understand the difficulties women face at workplaces, and probably even the advanced countries than ours have, more or less, similar kinds of obstacles for women to wade through.

Ooh, this is interesting, S. Sister. Yes, employers would hire a single woman before they'd consider hiring a married woman. I remember being asked if I was married because they assumed I would get "with child" and leave if I was married. I remember being very young and very shocked to hear that statement.There was "mandatory retirement" regardless of age, in those days, which forcibly occurred when one reached the 6th month of pregnancy. It ended through the courts right about then.

Please continue. Women were often defined first as wives, daughters, mothers, and then by occupation, if there was one to name.
