Not Engaged Yet

*headdesk* pt 3

Forgive any typos, but I'm fuming right now.Normally when I write here about the things my coworkers say it's funny because they're so dumb. Just a little while ago my coworker who was angry about losing business to a competitor used what I find to be a very offensive word to describe a homosexual female. I found myself frozen, speechless and completely unsure of what to do. The longer I sit here the more uncomfortable I feel. Also, the fact that life in the office has gone on like normal with everyone happily skipping about literally has me queasy. I've already been actively searching for other means of employment, so I already have no plans to stay here but I'm just not sure how to handle myself in the mean time.I'm not sure if this is a rant or a cry for help but any response is appreciated, I'm just trying to take my mind off of this...

    get fired so you can get unemployment while your looking for your new job.  can't beat that, still on pay roll, not physically working, and looking for a new job. lls - totally joking hope it made you laugh sounds like your office is a mad house.

    Hmph. I can't help you because I don't have your delicate sensebilities, but let's change the subject shall we? I shall tell you a story: Last night, my roommate held me down while my fat puppy licked my face until I literally couldn't breathe from laughing/trying to avoid the licks. It occurred to me that dying from puppy-lick asphyxiation would be a pretty pathetic way to go. The end.

    That sucks.  I'm never sure how to react when co-workers are inappropriate.  I'm not that confrontational, but I have said things along the line of "That's not very nice".  Then at least they know I'm not down with they way they're speaking.

    Between you guys and the stick figure drawing I'm working on of my intolerant coworkers demise I've officially got the giggles. I think I'll incorporate death by puppy into the next drawing.

    Let me rephrase: By "delicate sensibilities" I mean I try and keep my emotions pertinent to myself and not worry about ignorant hicks and their lack of tact or common sense.

    Ah, ok.  I thought you thought she was being too insensitive.  I should stop thinking what you thought about her thoughts.  That's what I thought.

    Errr insenstive = sensitive.

    Haha, I guess I *did* sort of think she was being too sensitive, but in a good way. I personally try not to get riled up when people are being meanies, but I also lay awake at night, wondering where my compassion for other people has wandered off to. So.
