Yup. I'm surrounded by them. How I navigate the day:

"When strong, avoid them. If of high morale, depress them. Seem humble to fill them with conceit. If at ease, exhaust them. If united, separate them. Attack their weaknesses. Emerge to their surprise."

Yes, everyone loves to watch a little girl on girl. I can see how it might be distracting.

"We are hard-pressed to think of a term comparable to 'catfight' that is regularly used to label conflict and competition between two men,"

"Pissing contest", you idiots.

They should work it out on the field of honor which, in the case of women, is a small pool of mud or jello.

My office experience is that women hate each other intensely and other women have concurred with this assessment.

Yeah they seem to think it's entirely a perception issue and don't seem to have considered the possibility that there might be some actual reason for that perception. In my experience, getting in to a fight with a guy usually ends in you two working it out soon after, now that the grievances have been aired and everybody knows where everyone is coming from. I think this stems partly from men's lesser (or at least simpler) social insight compared to women.

But with two women they are more likely to know exactly where the other is coming from before the fight erupts and so are more likely to conclude "Fark that biatch" then men who after the fight are going "OK, fark him, but I didn't realize how my actions were affecting him. Maybe I should make some effort to be more understanding of that."

Sort of the greater empathy and social insight paradoxically making it harder to work out some kinds of conflicts.

When men fight, it's settled. There might be a grudge but we typically let it go unless you're the guy who wrote Count of Monte Cristo.

Women will plot for as long as it takes just because someone laughed at her choice in shoes or passively remarked about her weight. She will also remember you forgetting to take out the trash one week in 1997.

I often wish I were gay, because guys are just easier to figure out.

I should clarify that I meant another woman making those remarks. That seems to draw the ire, hence TFA.

/has never dared to discuss weight with a woman
//or what dress she should wear, because no matter what I say I'm always wrong

I don't understand..if there is more than one woman in an office, there is fighting.  I thought this was just the way it is.  They're like big ol' betta fish.

I think men tend to brood silently until they explode, while women "share" everything from the most minor perceived slight to "Imma kill a biatch!"  It's the constant dripping of vitriol that disrupts the workplace the most.

Woman-on-woman fights are definitely to be avoided. Unless there is Jell-o involved.

Damnit I was coming here to suggest that we do it to avoid getting splattered with Jello!

Have had my share of spats with female co-workers. However, the absolute worst was a disagreement with a gay man. I have never experienced such immaturity in my life. I swear to god he was all 'I know you are, but what am I?' To this day, I can't remember what started the disagreement, I just recall it was so inane I couldn't fathom why it was an issue. I'll take a knock-down-drag-out any day with a woman -- gay or straight -- over even the tiniest disagreement with a gay man.

The more illogical, stubborn and emotionally invested the two sides are the harder it is to resolve the problem.

You can draw your own conclusions.

I did a brief contract with the Finance team at a huge aged care provider run by the Anglicans.

 
There was some ongoing niggle happening between two ladies, both in their early 30s, doing important shiatkicker roles. One day it turned into a bit of a shouting match in an office, and one of them decided to simply storm off home.

 
Farking classic!

 
Of course all the male managers were cowering in their offices. Not one of them tried to mediate or intercept her at the elevators with a bit of "In your dreams, sister! You go and park that fat ass of yours back in your office, we have deadlines."


Nothing was said the next day either. Coz, you know. Chicks.

Will never forget the office fight where two women who had it out for each other got into a screaming match that deteriorated into each accusing the other of farking someone and the other clarifying and insulting back ( e.g.  "So what if I farked X?? he needed some quality after farking you!" "Sure, you're such a big a*hole 'cause his c*ck easily fit yours!" "Which he stuck into your mouth many times after my ass, am I right??")

I was glad I hadn't farked either of them... several guys in the office were quite embarrassed and sort of hid for about a week.
