. . . really shouldn’t bother me.
But they do.
To whit: The job I’m doing at the moment is in a very large office. Most people there are okay and one guy in particular was very friendly when I first started. I got on with him really well. We had a laugh, etc.
Now, according to him, I obviously fancy him which is why I was ‘constantly sniffing around’. . . and he’s being a big an arsehole as it’s possible for one man to be. How depressing.
The really annoying thing is the job I’m currently doing – which is okay – has just turned up on the job website as a full time position, which, I’ve been told, I could easily get. But do I want to spend the rest of my working life dodging a bigot?
I thought this sort of attitude dies out in the 80’s.
We didn’t even have the comedy confused tolerant bigot conversation of yore:
“Well as long as you don’t try anything on with me”
“It okay, I don’t fancy you”
“Why not? What’s wrong with me?”
