So I tried to put my previous bad day at work behind me. Every day is a new day, right? Well the next day was not much better. Right away first thing in the morning, a staff (ok, she DOES have the reputation of being an insensitive person) uses the r-word to talk about a kid who I am going to see in her building.
I stayed calm, although my blood was boiling. I said I do not like the r-word, please don't use it in my presence (never mind how disrespectful to say that as an adult about a kid who is actually above average intelligence). OK I get Toltz's statement in my previous post - she is one of those people who would laugh and make fun of people with cognitive disabilities even as an adult or in old age. Unbelievable.
Then I talked to one of the adults in that group I observed the previous day where the r-word was used a lot. She said she didn't notice it at all. Despite the fact that I believe we once talked about this subject previously. Am I the only one who cares?
Please let today be a better day! Yesterday for the second day in a row I felt chewed up and spit out. Two more work days until vacation (from at least one job - ha).
