Awkward Experience
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (8)

I just had the awkward experience of defending with flaming sword (well, really, sharp words) a person who is loud, obnoxious, narcissistic, and never-to-be-spoken-to-again when I retire.

HOWEVER, some jerk came in and argued that she was wrong in the job she was completing for him because she is a Lesbian....

OH, NO! I leaped out of my chair and made it clear to him that he was wrong, wrong, wrong. First, because she is an expert in the business and I trust her judgment in most things related to the business and Second, because argumentum ad hominen is a false argument always.

If he wanted to say she was wrong in what she had analyzed, I wanted to see proof, and it must have nothing to do with her private life. I think my vehement attitude surprised him and her both. Me, too, since I'm usually trying to smooth things over, a peace-maker.

Even if she is a drama queen and loud, and gives me fits. I will not have bigoted, evil talk in my office, as long as I continue to be here in this seat.
