Goddamn EEO rules...

One of our inmates went a pulled a David Carradine over the weekend.

Because of EEO rules, I was cheated out of my opportunity to make "at least he died doing what he loved" and David Carradine jokes all day long.

Fucking fun ruiners.

But, but...they hired those that didn't necessarily qualify, however instead they created a more diverse working environment so everyone feels like they belong.

How did Equal Employment laws keep you from doing that?

Guessing since it wasn't an obscure movie quote, you're not understanding how a diverse workplace can be an exceptionally difficult place to make a racist/off-color joke?

Were there rules against making fun of inmate deaths or were you just making a judgment call based on the personalities you're surrounded by? Did you try the joke around people you trust? And how can you get an entire day out of saying David Carradine jokes? Just go up to people and be like "Remember the guy who David Carradined last night? Yeah. Good times."? Or did you have a full repertoire based on his filmography?

Have you ever had a job that paid more than minimum wage?

That's good. For some reason, I pictured you being the nerdy college grad or just shy of graduating from college, still living with your parents until you obtain a well enough paying job to live on your own.

Nope. Rent my own place. It's a studio apartment, but I shop at Whole Foods so it balances out.

And less since then?
I have some dignity.

$9'll get you anything you want, anywhere you want, any time you want.

Good move. That'll help you own it in never. :action-sm
I said I make rent. I never said I have plans for the future. I'm the type who's either going to have the cosmic arrow hit the bullseye or not be allowed to be talked about it EEO workplaces. I'd put money on the latter.

It's funny in theory, more hacky in practice.

The one and only time I ever got "written up" at work was when some cunty nurse in the hospital where I was a contractor overheard me make the stupid crack to one of my fellow techs... "My Indian name is Farts on Elevators."

The cunt actually filed a complaint reporting my "Offensive and racist" comment. She filed it anonymously... of course... but hospitals are the world's worst gossip mills and I found out who she was within a matter of minutes. She was a hispanic bottom-level ass wiper nurse with a notorious hair-trigger racial "I am outraged!" switch.

-The HR guy at the hospital who gave me the "talking to" laughed it off.

-The boss of my company drove out to give me my "talking to"... he bought me lunch and laughed it off.

So that was my punishment... a free lunch.

I'd put county courthouses/city halls as a close second to hospitals as far as gossip dens go. Put a large number of women whose sole purpose in their employment is to do some sort of paperwork and you'll get nothing but drama and people talking behind other people's backs.

I neglected to mention that I'm an EEO investigator, so presumably I should "know better" than to spread mirth and merriment through the workplace.

We should have a thread where we post about our real selves. Maybe a picture and a short paragraph about us. Do we have anything like that?

Deleted the part that didn't matter.
