A few weeks ago, I was working at a computer when I heard a strange buzzing in my ear. At first, I thought it was a fly, but then I turned my head and saw a GINORMOUS insect buzzing around right next to my head.
Obviously, I screamed.
The insect landed right on the computer monitor. So obviously, I couldn't use the computer anymore. Not until somebody (else) killed the flying terror for me.
A female physical therapist came over to me and asked if I was okay. I explained about the giant bug on my computer and that I was basically paralyzed with fear. The therapist then reached over and smooshed the giant bug with her hand.
If I were a man, I would have been totally emasculated. As it was, I was a little emasculated.
This has happened before. I think there was a jar I couldn't get open or something along those lines. I certainly don't mind getting help with something that either frightens me or involves physical strength that I don't have, but it does make me feel slightly like a wimp when a woman helps me.
