Tell me — have you ever had a female cable technician?
Jun 11 2010 Yesterday morning, PetSugar had cable installed in her new digs. Afterward, she told me about her experience and disclosed that her Comcast cable technician was a woman. You know me — I'm all about sisters doin' it for themselves but for as many times as I've had Comcast employees in my apartment, I've never once had a woman install my cable. I admit that I was a bit surprised. Sure, it's a well-known fact that the number of men outnumber women in the tech industry, but I never thought twice about tech service jobs like cable installers. Did I just perpetuate a double standard by always thinking that my cable guy would be . . . well, a guy?
