How exactly are you supposed to react when one of your work colleagues comes out with a gem like that?
I used to work in a working men's club. It was agony having to listen to that shit all day and night.
if there isn't one immediately to hand then maybe an angry rant will do, I've never been very good at biting my tongue regarding things like this (or anything actually, but especially cuntish remarks such as these).
a) ask why (recieve their foolishy reasons and counter/ask further whys? until they explode with realising they are unable to explain themselves when faced with implacable, patient explanations)
b) treat their statement with the contempt it deserves by asking them what colour eyes people should all have, what colour hair, how long? what music should they listen too? which disabilities should be allowed? how tall people should be, what hip measurements, ear measurements, how many hair follicles per square inch.....basically you could keep this up all day (a la martins freemans revenge tormenting of gareth in the office) you would really end up annoying them yet you dont have to end up in a traditiona; slanging match )one they are probably quite familiar and comfortable with
c) punch them in the face
It's quite disorienting. Then a kick to the crotch.
(check first.....the companies that i work for have a strict policy on this)
point out that racist or predjudiced opinions should not be opined at work.
i'm meeting my asian boyfriend after work for a drink, was wondering if you wanted to come.
how did the telling off go?
(as well as a telling off can go i guess) kind of admitted that i was in the wrong and how i would improve my work ethic so i wouldn't be bored enough to go on the internet yaddayadda.
over and over and over
