Well it is not exactly the latest and yet it still is sticking in my throat. Whilst seeing someone from a govt department with regards to my seeking new employment it was mentioned that "you can't exactly ... well ummm you know ... ummm .... guarantee that you are going to be around *insert fade away to nothing here* .........................." Then we quickly moved on to something else when I think she heard what she had said. I was a tad gob smacked over this one.
Afterwards when i thought about that I realised I should have asked "where is your ticket that guarantees that nothing will happen to you?" or something similar.
It is a degrading and hard enough process without having to hear that sort of comment.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
