Word has reached the dungeon that Price Waterhouse Cooper sent a receptionist home for not wearing the requisite heels on the job. It was only a matter of one phone-call from a lazy radio show researcher before Minister for PR, Terry Prone, was forced to take cover under a cloud of smug from where she instructed us all on the etiquette ways of the workplace.
Flat-shoed + make-up free = disrespectful
Heeled-up + make-up wearing = respectful
As a crude argument, it was highly impressive.
Sharp intakes of breath ensued across Ireland FM with the rapid reaction force launching sexist-seeking missiles towards nonsensical arguments that fail to support the double-standards women are forced to endure.
PwC policy + Terry Prone defence = pile of sexist shit.
As a sophisticated feminist argument against sexist practices, it was a hard one to challenge.
As an example of the corporate world’s ugly self-regard, the incident was another glaring one that mystifyingly managed to evade attack.
Sheila wasn’t sure if her heels had made her unsteady
or if it was just the feeling of power going to her head
