Mr. Sane, fear not – I have some good news. After a long, hard campaign, I have reversed my company’s policy on religious advertising. Let me explain: I work for Europe’s richest company – a huge monster of an organisation. Everything is very nice here, including the coffee, but imagine my abject horror upon getting said cup of coffee two weeks ago only to be bombarded by posters about Jesus. And how we should love him. No, really! At my place of work!
Picture, if you will, the look on my face.
Cue a concerted campaign by me to have the holy-posters removed and to be allowed the freedom to work in an environment devoid of superstition, fear and nonsense.
Despite the temptations of scrawling ‘Danger: Religious fundamentalists at work’ all over the offending items, I didn’t. Someone (not me) scratched the posters at the end of last week, however it took a meeting of the equal ops people – where I was able to express my objections – to do anything about it formally.
Picture, if you will, the look on my face (again) this morning when I discovered that the offending items had been removed! The Realist 1: Christ’s ones 0.
