"You are sick because you are a vegetarian!"
Did you ever hear that?
I remember, way back when I used to work for employers, I was always given so many "sick days" a year, and, lazy SOB I am, I would make sure that I would always use up all of those sick days (it always was a "use 'em or lose 'em policy), lying ("gasp!") that I was sick.
When I returned from the "sick" day, I would always hear remarks that "yoo need to eet sum meet, boy! Then yoo woodnt bee so sick all of the time! Didn't yore mammy and pappy teech yoo nuthin?"
Yet my fellow workers (who were flesh-eaters) were never harassed like this.
For a while I didn't take any sick days, just to show how healthy I was. But it went unnoticed.
Any thoughts on this?
