Maharajapuram won't eat meat.

He's an Indian programmer who works in my group and he's a vegan in the strictest sense. He won't even eat eggs. It's not for religious reasons. Apparently he witnessed a chicken being murdered by a butcher at a street market when he was a kid. It had a profound, traumatic impact on him. He now believes that animals should not be killed for food. I asked him if it was okay for lions to do it. He seemed to be okay with that. I said that I don't kill animals, I just eat them, so technically, that makes me better than a lion. He didn't agree.

At lunch today, he ordered a salad, but excluded carrots because he doesn't like them. I told him he's already narrowed the selection down enough. I called him a picky motherfucker. He was very offended. Apparently, to him, I was actually accusing him of fucking his mother.

I was called down to HR again today. Triplet just shook her head and signed me up for diversity training. I told her this incident was related more to "culture" than "diversity". Taking offense to being called a motherfucker has nothing to do with race or gender. She said the company doesn't have cultural sensitivity training, just diversity training, so that will have to do. 

I'm sure I can get out of it though. I mean, I got out of Outlook training, right?

He can eat fish. They don't have any feelings. It's a proven fact. And tasty.

Just steer clear of those crustaceans, they're all bottom dwellers and parasites. *nod*
