Really, the punchline is in the first line of dialog, isn't it?  Why do bosses act like this? Do they honestly think that it's OK for THEM to do it because they're different from all the other jerky bosses that act this way?

Sexism! Alive and well in the modern world (even in the Western World!).  I think my original point, back in 1999, was: "Haha, stupid woman didn't choose her words well!" but now, 17 years later in 2015, I look a bit deeper and see this as a rough metaphor for what happens when women speak up for themselves.  Be ready for the consequences of speaking up.  I'm not trying to discourage women at all.  I'm just saying that your freedom of speech can often cost you--so get help--financial, emotional, spiritual, whatever kind you think you'll need when the ridiculously patriarchal society we live in goes for revenge.  And it WILL go for revenge--even unconsciously.
