    that was actually the very first thing that struck me while reading this diary: the fact that you called an adult woman a "girl." It seemed ironic in the context of your topic. I'm 56 years old, and was already considered inappropriate and derogatory way back in the 1980s when I entered the workforce (I remember a couple times new people getting chewed out by the assistant manager for using it), so it was pretty shocking to see you use this derogatory term for the woman you work with, especially given the point you're trying to make in your diary. So the other commenters are not blowing this out of proportion, but anyway, now you know.
