I currently work at a Recreation Centre, and am in charge of setting up programs and events for the area's children. As necessary background, I have no children myself and do not plan on ever doing so. I don't mind kids as long as they behave, and I have worked with kids in the past, but this isn't my ideal job choice. (Essentially I took this position because it was the only job available when I moved here) end BG
In conversing with two coworkers about an upcoming event, I made an offhand comment about how I hoped the kids enjoyed it, as I really don't know what kids like. My childfree status came up when my coworkers told me I'd have children in a few years. One of my coworkers looked me up and down, sneered at me, and said "it should be a requirement of the job for you to have kids; they should get rid of you". He was 100% serious. I used the complete silence (and look of absolute shock, I admit) and walked away.
Two days later my coworker apologised both for the comment and for judging my choices, and bought me breakfast. Hooray for silence! Old TaurusGirl would have freaked out and stormed away.
