Granted I'm one of those that picks mercilessly on the guys (verbally only), but I'd love to hear the "other" story.

Many years ago I worked in a lab where we were getting a new mortuary.  The
new one had been built, but the old morgue was still there with the tables
etc still in place.  I was the student coordinator for the med lab program
as well as histo supervisor and part of the job was to choose the students
and oversee the training program.  Being a targeted male in a predominantly
female work environment, a running joke was my interview technique for
mostly female students - of the nudge, nudge, wink, wink variety.

I came in one morning and the Chief Technologist attacked me verbally about
leaving the old morgue in such a mess, and how he was completely disgusted.
So I went to the morgue and looked.  The buggers had spread ladies clothing,
empty liquor bottles, pantyhose, blankets and other stuff all over it to
look like an orgy.  I was the butt of their jokes all day long, the sexists!
Since they had draped more than three or four pairs of ladies undies around
the mortuary, to this day I don't know whether to be insulted or

What nobody was expecting was that right afterwards, and before it got
cleaned up, an RCMP officer came into the hospital to see an autopsy on an
unexpected death.  He went to the old morgue instead of the new one.  I
understand he stood still in shock for a few minutes, then turned around and
left.  He was never seen again.

Of course, I eventually got my revenge, but that's another story.
