Yes…I did have a Blue Tongue.

๐Ÿ‘‰This did happen.
Was it me not knowing my audience?
Was it the Company I was starting with not living up to its inclusion policy?


It was my 1st week at my new Career when I was invited to a Regional Meeting to introduce myself.

The usual round table introductions took place with no references to themselves as a person outside of work.

Oy Vey.

Then it was my turn, I tend not to talk about work because that is not who I am.

So when the question of where I used to work came up, I politely said with a smile;

I was a Pole Dancer.

๐Ÿ˜ฒ The room went silent.

Thatโ€™s when I knew it was not going to be an easy ride as just before during the break the conversations I heard were coming from the mouths of Rabid Saillors.

So after this meeting I was taken aside & given a Corrective Action due to insulting the so called “Team”.

This came from the Regional Manager who later proved to me time and time again he was on a lonely Ego trip and a total do I say Douche Bag?

The reason he gave me for the Corrective Action was:
This was not the โ€œright audienceโ€ to state this type of job whether true or not.

OMG. Fricken, Fracken……I took a deep breathe and moved on.

๐Ÿ‘‰ In the end the lesson was simple:

I will continue to be who I am as I cannot please everyone, if you don’t like it, then just Duck Off.

Itโ€™s not Personal even though it may seem that way.
He was just on a Power Trip due to his prior failures.

Take a lesson from every experience.
I learned that using ones Title for leverage is a Dick move.

๐Ÿ˜œ Oh, and the Blue Tongue?
That was just from a Phenomenal Snow Cone I had with my Family at the zoo that summer.
