|Despite my animosity toward fairies...

http://arbroath.blogspot.com/2011/11/sugar-plum-fairy-fired-for-cursing.htmlThis isn't fair: |
She was in the bathroom. In a toilet stall. Taking a drug test. And she accidentally flushed the evidence. And used a bad word.
Okay, I could never pull off Sugar Plum Fairy. And I would like to think I could spend the rest of my life without taking a drug test. (Not because I would fail it. I just think that unless LIVES depend on me, you need to have some kind of evidence that I'm impaired before I start peeing in a cup so you can see what I'm up to on my OWN GODDAMNED TIME.)
But accidentally flushing, and then using a curse word? Oh, my sister!
It's not like she's some noob -- she's been playing this character for years. Everyone loves her. Her behavior has been beyond reproach. She's willing to be drugtested for a FAIRY JOB. And you're going to fire her because in a relatively private place, out of character, she used a curse word?
Shame on you. I'm sorry, but when that bathroom stall door closes, I am in another universe. Whatever noise you hear has nothing to do with me. You will not talk to me, you will not acknowledge that I am on the other side of the stall door. (Unless of course, I call for help. Because that fourth wall comes down in a hurry when there's no toilet paper on the roll.)
But privacy in a bathroom stall...the right to drop character while having a whizz...c'mon, these may not be spelled out in the Constitution...but surely, they're implied, right?
