So, we found a wallet at work today. Dropped under the seat in the waiting room by an elderly patient.
I suggested we open the wallet, check the driver’s id and cross-reference it to the patient list so we could ring the person.
I was accused of:
- Being nosy.
- Invading people’s privacy.
- Being rude.
- Being “young”.
- Being too impulsive.
Are you serious? I mean, what the heck?
What are you supposed to do?????? (Angry question marks!) Have I been breaking some major wallet etiquette all my adult life? Can you imagine losing your wallet and never finding it because some total numpty refused to open it in order to protect your “privacy”.
I CANNOT BE THE ONLY ONE. FUCK THAT NOISE GENTLY WITH A CHAINSAW.
The ludicrous thing was that I was the only person in a room of 5 that thought this was odd. Then they spent 30 minutes alternating between berating me and condescending to me.
I’m shocked, shocked I tell you, that the roof did not lift clean off with the force of my eye rolls.
