Fat Chicks Don't Talk Smack

Well, this one beats the Guide to Flirting hands down. These transportation managers really had women-in-the-workplace down to a science. An excerpt from a July 1943 issue of Transportation Magazine offering advice to managers hiring women during WWII these gem pieces of advice:
  • "Pick young married women... they're less likely to be flirtateous" (actually somewhat true)
  • "'Husky girls' are more even tempered and efficient than their underweight sisters" (except when they're hungry);
  • Make sure to have a detailed schedule laid out because women "lack initiative" (tell that to the hordes of useless cads I've bossed around on a daily basis at work)
  • "A girl is more confident and is more efficient if she can keep her hair tidied, apply fresh lipstick and wash her hands several times a day" (yes - to wash the stink of slimy, gropey, misogynistic managers off of them)
  • "Be reasonably considerate about the use of strong language around women" (fuck that)
Um, no this isn't a joke.
