Whatthefark: Was a simple "No thank you, I'm Muslim" to much for her?


My gf works at a corp with a lot of transplanted Indians (dot) and during one project she yelled "holy cow!" at an unexpected result.

She said they were confused and started asking questions like what does this mean, the holy cow you are yelling.
She said, "I'm not sure, really. It just means 'wow' here. Sorry."

Apparently, they laughed their asses off and now say "holy cow" all the time.

He should have offered her a "proper English breakfast."

Where he offended her was the offer to buy her breakfast.  Had he honored her role as a woman, he would have respected that it was her job to cook breakfast and do the dishes afterward.

For the life of me I cannot fathom how, or more correctly WHY someone being offered a job would respond by deliberately insulting someone...  It appears the young lady is/was being a tad too touchy..

Christian sects in Spain have worn pointy hoods for centuries. Ropes are merely tools, like the lines on a sailboat.

It depends on what interpretation on Islam the person follows. Just like Christianity there are fundamental, moderate and liberal interpretations. Some people believe it is a sin to drink any alcohol, some believe you can drink but not to intoxication, and some don't follow either of those.

Another thing is if you unknowingly offend somebody, and they bring it to your attention, then you apologize. You don't respond in the manner that this guy did. Doing so shows that you are an self absorbed asshole who probably will have problems working with others.

And for all of you that are saying how would he know she was Muslim, you can tell by looking at some people that there is a good chance that they are Muslim. And just like anybody else you should avoid saying things that would offend them.

UnspokenVoice: FirstNationalBastard: Somacandra: Fear_and_Loathing: The question is how was he supposed to know she was Muslim?

Maybe he shouldn't have assumed she wasn't? Making assumptions about people's dietary/religious habits when you don't know them is rude. When I ask people over for dinner or go out with colleagues, the first question you ask is whether there are any places or foods to avoid for allergic or cultural or religious reasons. Its bloody well common courtesy. If he wanted to tell them to sod off rather than admit he was rude then that's his choice. Quit whining that you lost your contract because of your own rudeness. Grow up and act like an adult.

Well, we've reached the point that innocently offering to bring bacon sandwiches is now considered "rude".

Obviously, it's time that we all started living in bubbles and never interacting with other people ever again.

/she could have not been a douche and said "I'm muslim, I don't eat pork.", which probably would have led him to say "Oh, sorry, my bad.", and the problem would have been solved. But, no, being an oversensitive douchette was her choice instead.

serial_crusher: rumpelstiltskin: It sounds like they gave him a chance to say, "Look, I didn't realize I offended her. Let me apologize", and he took the opportunity to tell them to "sod off". I'm sure the NHS appreciates the fact the staffing firm will look for someone else to fill the position.

I'm glad he took a stand.  "I'm sorry you're offended" is cheapening apologies.  If he's not actually sorry for what he said (and he has no reason to be), he should be telling them to "sod off".


If it really was innocuous, then he should feel sorry for offending her.
I'm not British, I can't claim to know for sure how they insult each other over there, but I bet he said it the same way I might say to a random black person, "I'll bring the watermelon to your picnic." I know damned well that would insult the black person, and if I were to say it, it's because that would be what I wanted to accomplish. No apology would be in order. On the other hand, if I didn't know how insensitive that would be, then I would feel bad about insulting him. It's not his fault he got insulted. It's my fault, and I would accept responsibility.
All that said, you're right, it's good things played out as they did. It's good that everyone involved knows what a prick this guy is, and it's good they don't want anything to do with him. It's a shame this asshole is almost 60 years old and hasn't learned to treat other people with respect yet, and it's sad that he still needs to keep working and he's finding that causes him trouble in his efforts. But that's all beside the point.
