A Sure Fire Way To Piss Me Off
I was at work today having a great discussion with some co-workers. We were discussing politics, abortion and homosexuality, specifically gay marriage.
One person was very adamant that all are black and white issues and I and another co-worker were insisting that there are shades of grey in every part of life including all of these issues.
We had finished the conversation and a while later we each got called into our supervisor’s office and were informed that our conversation had “offended” a co-worker and that we needed to cool it.
Excuse me? When did someone who wasn’t involved in a conversation and was basically eavesdropping have to right to complain about our private conversation?
If someone doesn’t agree with what I have to say, I have no problem with that. But instead of running to a supervisor and whining, say it to my face.
I promise I won’t attack you; physically or verbally. If you feel strongly enough that something that I am doing is inappropriate, grow some cajones and tell me.
I hate whining tattle tales.
