Sexist Humor — Friendly Fire

Or... How to ask for a raise if you're just a gyrl.  I enjoyed a laugh this morning with this advice from Women's Day on how to ask for a raise: wash it. Wash it good.


  1. Ack! Is this another sign that we're headed back to the 50s?

  2. Was there disposable douche in the 50s? I bet you're thinking of the 70s or 80s.

  3. I wrote to Women's Day, and just got the following reply:
