…and not delivering them! I’m madder than a surgeon with a rusty scalpel – I went to the doctor’s office the other day and found the old sawbones I’ve been going to for 40 years had hung up his stethoscope – and his replacement was a woman.

This whole idea of women taking men’s jobs is something that has been getting my goat ever since the women’s lib wackos cooked it up back in the 1970s. I say there are some jobs women just weren’t meant to have. I’ve never seen a female football player who could knock over a man. I’ve never seen a female stand-up comic who was funny. And I’ve never seen a gal yet who could pilot a 747.
Let’s face it, women are more qualified to serve coffee or tea on a plane than they are to sit in the cockpit. Would you put your life in the hands of a lady pilot who’s got to pull over every five minutes and ask for directions, and check the rear-view mirror while she puts on her make-up?
And those lady comics – give me a break! All they ever talk about is their feminine health problems. The day you see Ed Anger laughing at a PMS joke is the day I shave my legs and start wearing a garter belt, by jiminey!
Years ago, women used to know their place. They let men handle the important jobs like driving cars, building things, and surgery. They knew there were some jobs they shouldn’t even bother applying for.
Look at my loving wife, Thelma Jean – you never saw her putting on a construction worker’s helmet or driving a truck. She’s always been happy making my dinner, doing my laundry and keeping my house clean. That should be all any woman needs to have a full and satisfying life.
These modern gals have to stick their feminist noses in places they don’t belong – like in a doctor’s office. To make matters worse, the lady doc whose office I wound up in had a male receptionist. And even though this male-secretary was all smiles, I could tell he was plenty upset to be doing a job that was more suited for someone wearing a skirt.
I’m sure that office would’ve been much happier if the man was doing the doctoring and the woman was answering the phones. I guess it makes a kind of sense to have special women doctors for female problems, but there’s no reason on Earth why a man should have to go see a woman doctor.
I figure I’ve made it through 72 years of perfect health without a woman doctor and I plan on making it 20 or 30 more years the same way.
I’ll have to admit this gal tricked me at first because I figured she was just the nurse. But then she had the gall to ask me to take off my shirt. Whoa, Nellie! Ed Anger doesn’t undress in front of any woman, except my wife, and even that’s done in the dark.
This Medicine Gal pulled out a bunch of her medical doohickeys, and I could see she was getting ready to poke me in a way that no woman ever has – or ever will.
Needless to say, I was out of there in a flash – and on my way out the door I told the male-secretary that he could cancel all the appointments the Anger family has with this lady sawbones.
Now I’m gonna go out and find me a new family physician . . . and you can bet your bottom dollar it’ll be a fella!

  2. women have not only held these so-called "men's work" jobs but have also had wonderful contributions in such fields as medicine. I will not go into your personal life or that of your wife's which I imagine has lingering and quiet thoughts of a more rounded experience in her life, but in regards to the validity of women maintaining and succeeding in all fields of labor I regret to inform you that your notions are incredibly off point from reality. so much so, that i question the validity of this opinion in its entirety. however if this is an honest opinion i would very much like to believe, though doubt, that you might re-open your mind to concepts about the world in which you live. for starters you could go to this website and read of women's honest to god important achievements and contributions to the medical field. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/changingthefaceofmedicine/
    then perhaps you could start reading some history books on women's growth and contributions in society and perhaps even read some writings by women. i think perhaps the best and most important thing you could do, as difficult as it may be, is to begin asking yourself, seriously asking yourself, how you would feel if you were a women, how you would react to the events in everyday life. these should not be black and white answers but those in which you put great deal of effort into empathizing with someone different than yourself and letting go of your instinctual reactions.
