Why are people so oddly insensitive?
This is a rant by the way
Everyone I work with knows I am ill a lot and that I have lupus.
When I have my bad days (like yesterday), I pretty much have some trouble walking (joint pain) and am quiet. You can tell by the look on my face, I'm just not doing well.
But I come to work anyway, do my work and really do not complain.
But my coworkers will still come up to me and ask "What's wrong? Why are u walking strange? Home come you look like you've not slept"
Normally I will reply "I'm just having a bad day"
Well yesterday I was sick of all the questions. One guy gets me at the photocopier and says "You are walking funny today, how come"
I turned to him and said "Listen, I have lupus and feel like HELL on most days, but I've explained this to you SO many times and feel I don't owe you an explanation"
I really got b*tchy with him.
Last Friday I worked a 1/2 days (which is rare I leave early), and had to leave quickly cause I was really sick. As I was leaving, I said goodbye and 4 ppl asked and practically followed me to the door asking "Where are u going, are you ok, why are you sick"
ahhhhhhhhhh.......I never inquire about when ppl leave early.
These are only coworkers and not my bosses.
What is it with ppl. Just ask "how are you" Hope your day goes well" etc...
Why do these ppl I work with feel they are owed an explanation?!
If I had cancer, no one would ask.
I'm going to wear a t-shirt that says "I have lupus now bite me"
Ok rant over ;-)
