I’m currently on the production bay at work helping out different departments that have lost a load of temp staff. This means having to wear my normal clothes rather than suiting up like I usually do. This also means that my arms are on show.
The amount of funny looks I’ve been getting from the management is unreal. It’s like they are disappointed in me for having tattoos. I don’t believe that having tattoos affects the way I do my job. I’m doing the company a massive favour by leaving the comfort of my warm office to do manual labour which I’m more than happy to do. I almost feel scrutinised for my general appearance. I like to keep my work and social life separately and I wish that the management would understand this and stop being so old fashioned. I’m not a biker, I’m not in a gang, I’ve not been to prison and as much as I wish I was…… I’m not a pirate.
