Dear Business Leader,
I have a problem, sir, and I need your advice. Tomorrow my office is having a dinner at the president of the company's house. Today, the caterer called in and said she would not be able to cater the event because of pregnancy complications. After hearing this news, I made the remark "Good, I didn't want someone pregnant cooking dinner for us, anyways. That's gross."
For some reason, sir, the ladies of the office now hate me. It appears my remarks offended them somehow. They look at me with mean faces and speak ugly words to me. It's not that I don't like pregnant ladies. I love pregnant ladies. My own mother was once considered a 'pregnant lady.' It's just that I don't think a woman with something about to burst out of her body should be handling any food.
Is there anything I can do, sir, to repair the relationship between the chicks in the office and I?
Thank you for your response,
Co-Worker in Austin
P.S. If only there were a cooking show on television that went over topics like this.
