Quotes

Allison Henderson: At work, when you act like 'one of the boys', they call you abrasive and difficult. So, if you act like a woman, they say you're emotional and difficult. So, difficult is really just the word for anything that isn't a man.

Fictitious scenarios
13 March 2012 | by HateCoworkerSee all my reviews

A mother running a family and keeping a job, how groundbreaking. What's interesting is that Hollywood writers seem to think that working mothers really give a **** about competing with a bunch of Chanel wearing housewives at a stupid school bake sale. I always tell my husband if our child is so easily traumatized she's just not going to make it. Other than the fact that at work you get to meet good looking men who offer you a kind of escape from your daily headaches at home, this movie really isn't all that accurate. It's what I always thought a working mother's life would be...when I was 20 and in business school. Clearly Hollywood never graduated.
