I wanted to cook something special and share it with all of you today, but this week has been one gut punch after another after another. I work with the public, and have my whole life, but lately, people are just down right AWFUL. I have been yelled at twice for simply following the rules and asking if people needed help, but what happened today was the worst. I got accused of being a racist simply because I told two people,who just happened to be of color, they needed to leave that part of the pool until my class ended or they could take my class. They were fine, apologized and left with no issue. It was some other jerk, who wasn’t even a participant in my class and was not involved in the situation at all, who just felt like he needed to step in and tell me I was a racist for no reason, without having any idea what the rules of the pool are or what the situation was. When I tried to explain to him that it is a safety precaution for all involved not to have people jump in the pool and play around while a class is going on, he just refused to listen and kept insisting I was a racist. And this was all just this week alone. Sometimes, I really hate people. So I apologize, but I just don’t have it in me today. I have been completely beat up by strangers without a clue, all for just trying to follow the rules and do the right thing.
