One of my coworkers, L, is a member of Sea of Love ministries. Apparently, he saw me there last Sunday, but I bolted so fast after the sermon I didn’t see him. He stopped by my cube on Tuesday to ask how I liked it. I told him it was an enjoyable sermon, but I wasn’t sure I was going back. L eventually wondered off once I started talking about the project he was supposed to be working on. Then, he stopped back by on Thursday and tried to convince me that I should really give the Church one more chance and talk to the minister himself after the service on Sunday. He was being so annoying about it I finally had a chance to give my Work and Religon speech. Here is a brief summary: “Work and religon and two very important things in our society. However, they do not have a place together at work. If you mention anything to do with religon to me again while at work I will report you to HR for making this a harassing workplace for me.” I only had to use this little speech once before and on that jerk, I did end up reporting her. She kept on leaving religious literature in the ladies toilet stalls, even after she was told by management to stop. She eventually left “for better oppartunities elsewhere.” Since I didn’t go to the Church this Sunday it will be interesting to see if my L tries to talk to me again. I will report him. I don’t like being harassed over my religious choices.
