Yet another abusive working environment.

Ha-ha. That was exactly what I thought. Yep! You can bet on that. ;‑) I guess the two women may have learned they had gotten themselves in a mess after getting sober. I'm sure what they had done taught them fully crime doesn't pay.

You don't think women should be treated equal?

They don't want to be treated equal, as soon as you mention to them about signing up for the draft they immediately balk at it. They are OK with letting guys sign up for the draft but themselves? Oh hell no.

I hope they don't get a pity-party sentence and are put behind bars.

"Remorse" followed by out of court settlement followed by probation.
