I Have a Name

I don’t like posting things about work much on here any more, but I want to post a little today about something that happened near the end of my shift mostly because it hurts and I’m sure others can relate. I also am hoping that by posting this if you are one to do the action I’m about to relay to you, you’ll stop because it does hurt the victim (and no, I won’t use another word because you are really victimizing or objectifying the person).

Near the end of my shift today one of the two co-workers I mentioned last entry, came in to work and asked our manager (and keep in mind we were all relatively close by each other so my co-worker could have asked me), “What is she doing?” and gestured towards me. My manager explained what I was doing and then proceeded to explain more about other things that my co-worker needed to know (most of which, since it didn’t involve me, I tuned out). I actually felt like interjecting and saying to my co-worker, “I have a name! My name is Christy; we’ve worked together for almost three years!” I didn’t say anything because I prefer to keep the peace and not cause any more drama than is already present; I also try to lead by example rather than aggravate others or ruffle any more feathers, as I like to say.

In conclusion, I’d just like to summarize that words can and do hurt. I really hope that the next time someone (or if it’s you) decide to not address someone by name (unless you really don’t know them or know if they speak your language) you will think twice (or more) because it hurts when people don’t use your name. I could just as easily do some real damage to my co-worker, but two wrongs never make a right. Two lefts make a right, though. 😉 In all seriousness, though, please realize that everyone has feelings, not just yourself. Okay, I’m done here!

Love and prayers, as always! ❤

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
