Braindead Riggata! (Not his real name, but actually, quite close!)
Yesterday, I called into work to see about getting the day off so I could go with Nick to make plans for his mother's funeral.
The above mentioned manager's response, "If you feel you need to go, then take the day off."
Now, if I called in and said that my wife's mother died, would I have gotten the same response? "If you feel the need to go with your wife, then take the day off." I highly doubt it. But, because I am gay, my relationships don't mean as much.
OF COURSE I FEEL THE NEED! DUH!!
