today, a male coworker opened a car door for me. it was a kind gesture, and i thanked him for it, and i got into the car, and it was fine.
later in the day, i attempted to do the same for him. as i opened the door, he shook his head.
him: “that’s not the way it works”
me: “oh, you opened the door for me earlier… i just wanted to do the same for you!”
him: “you know, it’s actually kind of rude to ignore someone doing nice things for you.”
i was a bit baffled by this
me: “well, i accepted your nice gesture earlier… i mean, by that standard, wouldn’t it technically be rude for you to not accept mine right now?”
he was silent, but still didn’t take the seat i offered, opting instead to open his own door and sit in the back.
once we were both in
him: “i don’t mean this to be sexist, but it’s really a guy’s place to be chivalrous and make girls feel special.”
THIS is why I need feminism. Because my male coworker couldn’t even let me open a door for him lest it take away his power and masculinity.
I’m still really upset and angry. He did it once, the camera happened to be on him, he did it once and I think it’s the funniest joke that’s ever been on our show. - Michael Schur (x)
