I just have to laugh.....
The OP was just introducing herself and laying out her stall. She didn't talk about her workmates in a derogatory way. Yet one of the PC brigade has to jump on board crying "foul".
Beggars belief sometimes and I can fully understand why the other poster said "I could almost guarantee this comment would come".
It is a proven fact even in the uk that some people from differant cultures, who believe that women are of a lower class then men. So when the person wrote there story she did NOTHING wrong by what she said. I did not see that she was being racist in anyway.
