I work in a small office , we are all pretty friendly and we usually all talk pretty much most of the day ( we have alot of slow days lol ) ..... There is one woman ( who this post is about) is notorious for causing problems.... she is the type who tries to make a big deal out of everything and just constantly talks about the bad things in life and about people ( I am the opposite so I guess that is why I dont care for her much) but nonetheless I am still friendly to her... but now she just has me so annoyed that I cant let it go ....
So my best office buddy and I were talking about a movie ( I had just caught parts of it ) ... and as we were talking I said " do you mean the druggie black guy or the dirty looking white guy" ( which describes the people I was talking about ) ..... Of course she hears this and instantly has an uproar about how I am being racist in the work place ... she literally goes into a 5 mintues speach about how her best friend is black and her cousin is married to and has black kids, etc.... She even goes over to another worker ( who is black) and asks him what he thinks about what I said ( he basically just tried to shoo her away since he was on hold with a call ) ...
I mean I know she does this to get attention, I know it shouldnt bug me but it does ( it was actually embarrassing to have this woman "lecture" me in front of my co-workers) ....
not only that but if anyone was racist ( which I think that means shows hate towards a race and I am pretty sure that wasnt the case, if anything maybe some racial profiling was going on ) ...... but I said a druggie black guy - it was a black guy who did drugs, compared to another main character on the show who was black and didnt do drugs...... I also said DIRTY WHITE GUY ... ( which I was describing the white guy who looked like he hasnt showered or shaved in months) .... I mean she was mad that I said something about a black man, why didnt she cause a fuss of what I said about the white guy , I mean saying someone is dirty is pretty much the same insult as saying someone is a druggie .....
** also, I do not plan on taking this any further with her, i am planning on ignoring her and just acting like it never happened..... but I think seeing that I am not the only one who thinks SHE is the crazy one, I would feel better lol.

My husband is black and when I asked him if he would take offense, I had to repeat all of this and then he had to read it himself because he wasn't understanding, lol. His final answer is that she is an idiot! ;) I agree. I also agree with not taking it any further. I can feel your embarassment and am so with you on that. I would have been embarassed also. But the facts are, it wasn't racist, and therefore, she looks like an extremely loud drama queen with a touch of idiot going on. ;)
