1109. She Now Knows She Can Do Whatever She Wants
“I hadn’t gotten promoted for a couple of years. So I asked my boss why. In an irritated voice he said, ‘Do you really want to know why? I’ll tell you if you really want to know. You laugh and smile too much, And until you change that, you’re never going anywhere else in this company.’ Guess what? I quit. I honestly do not know how I had the confidence to do this, because I was 40 by then, and now I know that is when ageism really kicks in. But I was determined that I was not going to stay somewhere that wanted me to change my entire personality for a company.”
