I went to a job interview. Yes I was over qualified but my bills could care less-as long as I pay them on time with some kind of job. Then the question came out onto the table. "I see your medical alert bracelet-do you have a problem?" My first thought was to say yes , you for asking that question (but I didn't) so I replied- i have Diabetes. The interviewer says, " Is that going to be a problem- because we ain't set up for that kind of thing here" Before I could correct her english I just replied "No, it has never been a problem before as long as I eat on time each day" She looks out the corner of her eye and says, " well, we don't go to lunch the same time everyday around here-you could be a problem"
I left thinking well D@#$, I have never had anyone give me grief about being a diabetic, Being a woman, being over a size 10, being from the North but never for being a diabetic.
Has anyone else gone through this?
Am I going to have to hide my bracelet or wear long sleeve shirts now?
