As opposed to men, who draw out all OUR energy while we're awake

I actually read a book about the male version--incubus.

Hey, isn't there a movie with William Shatner in it called "Incubus"? IIRC, that may be the one where they speak in Esperanto. I used to see trailers of it in VHS tapes.

Re: Mommies In The Work Place

There is a Taoist teaching that men should "conserve their ching", or semen, to sustain health and virility. As I remember they use the image of the Tiger Woman, who draws all life from the man and leaves him sexually and morally destroyed. They particularly warn against women of a certain age. (Unfortunately the only age that I am likely to qualify for.)

I tried it once, but discovered two drawbacks. One, your female partner only appears insatiable. Put her to the test, and soon it's Are we done yet?

The other problem is it really isnít that much fun to leave before the end.

Ha

Re: Mommies In The Work Place

Wondering how people feel/felt about co-workers who had family obligations which kept them from being complete team players.

I was one of those that would take time from work. Sometimes when we needed coverage over holidays or week-ends people without kids would fill in.

Also had a co-worker who took maternity leave, we had to cover for her in the meantime and then when she came back and after we breathed a sigh of relief, handed in her resignation to be home with the baby..

I remember a woman who had no children who would complain about women with kids not puting up as much effort and getting cut more slack.

Well, we do need to bring up the next generation, but work life is not always equal for those with no kids or those whose kids have grown.

Re: Mommies In The Work Place

Sometimes I would hear some grumbling by my staff who did not have children or other family obligations. They were the ones who ended up covering for others. The most important thing is to staff at suffiient levels so you don't take advantage of certain people, but of course that doesn't always work out perfectly.

Re: Mommies In The Work Place

I remember when it was perfectly OK to take a 2-hour lunch to play racquetball, but not so good to bug out an hour early to pick up your kids from day camp.

Leaving 'to spend more time with family' is often a cover for avoiding a scandal.

(Lately it seems 'going into rehab' is the way around all scandals.)
