I am so naive. Really.
About an hour ago we're talking about architects putting in at least 40 hrs. Newbies/non associates, normally put in alot of work, don't get a ton of money, but get tons of experience which will pay off later on. Now some architects are Jewish (shabat shalom) and need to get home before sundown on Fridays. So I'm talking to ONE GUY about making up his time, which he has conveniently been forgetting to do and somehow lent comes up and he asks if I've given anything up.
"Yes" I answer. "I've given up swearing for lent." Now I don't normally swear in work, but it does happen. We resolve the issue and he goes. 5 min later diff architect comes in and says "Hey Shiksa, hows it going?".
What the heck did he call me? I tell him I'm fine.
Another guy comes in like 30 seconds later and tells me the owner said I need to work this weekend. (like that would happen)
Then another puts a sticky in my hair. I give him the stink eye and ask "What the HECK is going on?" Those sweet Jewish guys were TRYING to make me swear! I came really close to it too when he STUCK SOMETHING ON MY HAIR!.
It's going to be a long 40 days.
I'm sending love and good karma to my adversary HeffMike who just lost his job. It's a devastating thing to go through, financially, mentally and emotionally. I say hang tough. Things happen for a reason and sometimes it's for the best. At least no one is calling him a Shiksa.
Update: They just sent the IT guy over to mess with my pc in an attempt to make me swear. I told them I didn't give up SLAPPING for lent! Grrrrrrr
