Dear Eye View
A few days ago I caught my Muslim co-worker sneaking some bites of an orange. Our company and our client are very accepting of the fact that it is Ramadan and have made accommodations to help him out. I don’t know how the client will react if they ever found out that he’s not sticking with the Ramadan fast. Since this client represents our largest billings, we can’t afford to lose them. Should I mention it to my company or ignore it? On top of this, some co-workers are resentful that he gets to take it easy for a month.
—Don’t Want to Get Anyone Fired
I understand your concern.Forget the eating or noneating habits of this co-worker and focus your enforcement concerns on something more crucial, like who is using too much company toilet paper. Just remember, what would Dwight say..”Security in this office is a joke. Last year I came to my office with my spud-gun in a duffel bag. I sat at my desk all day with a rifle that shoots potatoes at 60 pounds per square inch. Can you imagine if I was deranged?” Dont be a Dwight.
