I have a very interesting job. When you work with over 800 employees you discover a wide variety of people.
Today I have had the opportunity to hang out with a few co-workers. These folks are not necessarily the nicest dressed folks and they are all a little rough looking. I know they are awesome people doing some amazing work.
From the outside looking in, I realized that many around us see things differently. Assumptions are made. Conclusions are derived from just from their appearance. This was brought to my mind today as a youth pastor stepped outside his comfort zone and asked if everything was okay.
While his focus was on them, I think he was attempting to ask me if everything was okay. I wanted to say something funny and say, “No, I just found a group,of people that wanted to try out the job. We are gonna spend an hour seeing what happens.”
Before I could get that out, these guys were quick to reassure that youth pastor that everything was okay. I guess I missed the opportunity to have fun. Maybe next time.
