SF Drabble #205 “But It Wouldn’t Be Nothing”

I came aboard at Viria, jumped right in. It was nice to be working on a modern drive for a change. I’d been on a bulk hauler before that, but the Captain of that one fancied himself an engineer as well, and I think he was threatened, so I was out. I mean, I’m just a girl.

There’s a lot of that out here. Just getting certified was twice as hard. You have to work twice as hard to prove yourself, but don’t make the boys look bad or they’ll all resent you. Men are such children. Human men, anyway.
