We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I think overly sensitive people are haters. They make me take down pictures in my cube like the Attack of the 50 Foot Woman original movie poster.
"But it's a monster"
"No it's a scantily clad woman"
"But the car... in her hand.. the guy isn't looking at her house sized boobs or anything.."
"Take it down"
Since then, I throw up every morning. I can hardly stand the thought of this sensitive person's attention being turned on me. What if I offend her again? What if something I do that is totally innocent is construed to be offensive? What if I lose my job?
My workplace is now an unsafe, dangerous place for me. I can't sleep at night for fear of easily offended people. They have such power over me, I am helpless. My gut wrenches just typing this. Gawd I hope they aren't collecting my keystrokes.
Last time she said any criticism of her policies would be considered hate towards women, since she is a woman, and I am a man. I have to go lie down.
