I realize I haven’t been around for awhile. The blog isn’t dead, there are no home problems. I am just entering the last couple of weeks before my review, where my agency decides if I am made of the “right stuff” to work for them. The actual technical probation ends in early August, but the cutoff time to give me a pink slip for no reason is next week. So I have been working hard.
I did have to stop long enough to relay a horrendous thing. Honestly I haven’t even considered it much because it really bothers me.
My coworkers went on a tear about how horrible Caitlyn Jenner is and how she is only attention seeking. It was loud and being bandied about by several coworkers. I found this incredibly soul crushing to hear them. All I could think is that if they were this loud about a celebrity, I know they are probably saying shit about Jello (although it is a good thing I don’t hear it, otherwise I might be hauled away for assault).
I have always heard about hostile work environment, but today is by far the most hostile I have ever felt. Don’t get me wrong, everyone has been nice and there is no problems to me personally, but it really did trash me to hear them go on.
I really don’t even have the capacity to talk much about the incident here today. I still start spluttering angrily just thinking about it.
I will see you folks later, I promise no one here is forgotten. I really appreciate the feedback.
