I am a mental health worker. What this means, I am still not sure. All I know is that I can REALLY sympathize with my clients sometimes. Oh yeah, and I'm Canadian, eh?
Oh, I love it. Nothing like client honesty. "Oh, I love your glasses! You look like a little baby!" "Miss you think you're too young to have kids? You're actually not that young." Or my personal favorite, "I can't walk down the street with you! You're white!"
Yeah, fortunately I'm not sensitive to these kind of comments, but it's like "okay, I guess we're going to spend some time today on socially appropriate behavour!"
