*The team manager when I was doing sports journalism* “I’m sorry about all the online verbal abuse, stalking and trolling you receive, Sharon. You’ve had to put up with more than any writer has had to endure.”
*Me, sarcastically* “Gee, I can’t think why.”
Context: I was the only girl writer on a sports site with 14 guy writers.
*Me* “Oh, it’s fine. And poor Alfred. He gets some horrible stuff said to him. They really detest him and say he’s ruining the site.”
Context: Alfred was the only black guy out of all the writers.
Not that me or Alfred were exactly Rick Reilly, but you understand certain things sometimes, you know?
