'20 Things Men Don't Like About Women In The Office' Is The Most Ridiculous List You'll Read Today

One author from the 1940s had very particular views about the presence of ladies in the office.

University of York student Sophie Gadd shared the following image from What Men Don't Like About Women, a book published in 1945 by Thomas Horton:

If this list is to be believed, all professional women are gold-digging busybodies who have nothing better to do than shamelessly talk about their private lives and use being women to get ahead. (Horton would be happy to learn that things like gender discrimination and the wage gap have firmly put us women in our place -- no more misapplying femininity to get a raise.)

We hope no one who shares Horton's views visits the HuffPost Women "lady corner" any time soon -- we have a lot of assumptions with regard to lunch.
