Now that sounds like the Canadian women I know! Ungrateful, entitled, expect the best of everything because they are women and expect you to help them because you are a man.

Damn my wife would be happy to take that job as would I. Love workin in the kitchen! You never go hungry and its always warm working over a burner. I don't know why people get so insulted over cooking, when I was 24 I took a chefing course and it was great, learned how to cook all sorts of great stuff. No better feeling when hungry guys are chowing down on your work and they compliment you on it.

If you are scoffing at an $18/hour cooking job, then you've clearly never worked in a restaurant before let alone a regular job.

I'm only responsible for what I say not for what u understand. FYI the sad face at the $18/hr rate was because my management experience won't get me squat in the "skilled" trade and I am used to earning much more than that. I once owned 2 restaurants (as well as other ventures) so I have no problem cooking or baking. I've also crawled on my belly in crawlspaces as well as climbed 25 ft ladders so this girl has no sense of entitlement when it come to job duties. In the future please ask more questions before making assumptions. Blush
