Update: Someone found some "questionable" options and complained.
duh Karen that’s what gifs are.
Side note the Teams emojis are so terrible.
OMFG. Just don't use or respond to the questionable ones. I hate people.
And if you receive an inappropriate emoji, the sender is the problem more than the emoji is.
Getting report from fellow nurse...
Me: are they nice?
Nurse: umm, which one are you getting again?
Me: uh the nice ones!
Happy Monday. Just got a complaint our project manager compared our project to The Trail of Tears on Friday and offended several of my consultants. So now I have to deal with that. Wtf. I shouldn’t have to tell adults not to compare work to genocide.
How does one even make that connection in one's mind?!
Even if you’re dense and not up-to-date on what counts as pc these days, that’s a bad one.
I talked with him and he remembers making the comment but said he didn't even think of the historical reference and didn't mean it like that. He said he was going more for the long process to get us to where we were caused some heartache/pain before getting there. He's going to apologize (his idea), regardless, and hopefully think before he speaks going forward.
An apology is all well and good, but he also needs to remember that the Trail of Tears didn't have some profound happy (or even neutral) ending.
