People like to say, “I’m not prejudice”… but then something – a statement or a look – creeps up and reveals their true nature. It happens. In a way, we all have our prejudices. These may not be major, but simply behaviors we have adopted from familial and societal influences.
I experienced this prejudice yesterday. I had to leave work because of a health situation. It was personal – I did not want to share it with the group – but had to ask someone to cover for me in the afternoon. I asked, she said yes. I was prepared to move on…then…
This coworker turns to another and gives this look – the eye rolling business. The situation I was leaving for was completely out of my control! But I don’t care any more.
They and their miserable attitudes can just bugger off.
But what blows my mind is this coworker is a devout Christian. She talks about her church, and prays for people. But the Christian’s I know – and I am one of them – don’t treat people like this.
