So I finished the zombie run with just one life flag left
and all I can say is I have never sprinted more in my life. My sore legs can attest to that.
Theres a big racist war (argument) going on in the hospital.. A dietician told three Pilipino nurses that they all eat too much (they asked about their diets) and its true, they do eat a lottt more than Irish people. Its weird. And 4 Pilipino nurses have been called down to HR and 2 from my department because they wont stop speaking in their own language during working hours. Like seriously. Its a working environment. Its a fucking hospital. English is the first language in Ireland. Be respectful or gtfo.
We’re all getting ready to hand in our own complaints. So tired of working some days and not understanding one word two colleagues say if I unfortunately get stuck with two of them and no other person who’s first language is Irish. Ready to kill them tbh lol.
1. In English it’s Filipino.
2. I can’t believe the amount of food an employee eats is an issue in your workplace. Why should it matter if they eat more than Irish people? That’s honestly just the same as policing a person’s eating habits because of her weight. The only difference is that your race is what’s making you fancy yourself superior to them, not your thinness.
3. I don’t think them speaking their mother tongue, which is Tagalog, means they’re disrespecting English speakers in your workplace. It’s just easier for them to communicate that way. Imagine yourself with a friend in France; you know a bit of French but you know English better. If you were to talk to your friend who’s also a native English speaker, would you still prefer to struggle with French instead of speaking more conveniently in English? If you do speak English, should the French speakers there feel disrespected?
4. You’re absolutely right about what’s happening at your work being racist, although I don’t think it’s a war. It’s plain old racial discrimination.
Had I known there’ll be actual teams in the zombie run and we’ll be trying to beat other teams to the finish line, I wouldn’t have signed up. Gah I just want a peaceful (and zombie-filled, yes) run without worrying about being the weakest link in a stupid team! This is seriously stressing me out.
I know I’m an envious little shit because I get so motivated to draw when I see other people’s artworks which I feel like I’m skilled enough to make as well. A cocksure little voice inside my head says, “That’s easy, you can make that!” and then I’ll be drawing for hours.
