I feel your pain. I spend 12 hours locked in a room with 2 people.
One of my co workers joined a fire department not too long ago. Most of the departments just started accepting women in the past 5 years, and there is only 1 to 2 women on some departments. It's been a round and round issue. What does she do in her interview? She tells them that she does not want to fight fire, *per se* (damn phone). She will if no one else is available, but she mainly wants to cook their meals and clean the station so the men folk can take care of other things.
"Please say it ain't so" was all I could think when she said that.
