HEALTH worker Steve Whitaker spends his days in an office surrounded by 39 women.
So a brewery took pity on him and organised a special beer and comedy night for him in the garden of his home.
The smile was put on his face by Castlemaine XXXX.
Steve, 38, of Holywell Green, was entertained at an exclusive backyard gig with his friends and family by Jason Cook, a rising star of the UK comedy scene, after enduring seven years of talk about hairdos, handbags and boyfriends.
The married father-of-two won his ‘money can’t buy’ prize after XXXX launched their search for men trapped in Desperate Worklives.
Steve, a therapy assistant at the Laura Mitchell Health Centre in Halifax, revealed his plight to XXXX and how he won the night of fun with his family and friends.
He said: “I have been working at the same place for seven years and all my workmates are great. But I am the only man and there are 39 women. It feels like I am one of the gang now.
He added: “It doesn’t matter what they are talking about. They don’t stop when I walk in the room.
“I have heard it all, hairdos, boyfriends and all sorts of other women’s chat.
“I try to change the subject to football – but it doesn’t seem to work!
“I am just glad I have two boys at home. If it was all women there too I’d go spare.”
