the thing that made me so cross about the ‘missing your children’s sports day’ comment is that there is 100% undeniably a healthy dose of expectation there that would and should be ~someone else~ (surely, usually a woman) in the background to pick up that slack at home while you work on the absolutely essential world-changing job that is a pitch, only to be rewarded with friday beers and pizza (again, out of office hours and seeping into real life hours). it’s no wonder adland is still so dominated by a certain kind of man with comments like this still floating around. GAH. (loved this week’s FTOF though, as always!)
