I work for a very large organization. That is to say one that has roughly 5000 people employed over 3 shifts. Needless to say there is a bunch of people here. And as to be expected there are plenty of people who are great; some are even aw-some. Like every workplace the citizenry here is a microcosm of our tiny planet and this is both to my delight and horror.
The one thing that sticks out in my mind as exactly 100% not awesome and that is the Jesus freaks. Although I am not a religious person I do have respect for those who are. My problem lies within the gross inequity of a persons’ general nature to the amount of Christian paraphernalia they have surrounding their desks. It has been my observation that the more poorly conceived/ executed “Work Place Prayers” and faded mustard stained Footprints in the Sand printouts the more ornery that person seems. I am not sure if one’s level of religiosity is purely tied to how much Christian propaganda they can accumulate.
By contrast my grandmother, who passed away 6 years ago, had 1 cross and 1 bible in her home. Coincidently she also knitted afghans for the homeless up until about a week before she died. Not surprisingly she was awesome.
Lesson of the day….
Back off Jesus freak. His name wasn’t even Jesus.
