Said by me, in response to one of the dishwashers making someone feel bad because they were eating garlic bread by saying, "All of you heavy people shouldn't be eating so much garlic bread."
I almost got beat up.
The thing is, this always happens to me...my whole life! I'm ALWAYS the person who sticks up for other people when no one else wants to. ALWAYS. I'm the one who talks to the boss when the crew is angry and hates him, I'm the one who tells the bully to pick on someone their own size, and I'm the one who tells a rude person to shut up when they say something inappropriate.
And inevitably, the very people I stick up for end up still being nice to the people they were complaining about, making me look like an ass.
Every single time.
I feel good about the fact that I don't let people be mean to others and that I'm brave enough to tell it how it is, but I just wish, for once, someone would stand by my side.
Especially when the person I yelled at is from the wrong side of the tracks and is 16 times bigger than anyone in the place...
