that comment hurts …

It was a casual water-cooler conversation in the office over the traditional Chinese snack in the kitchen that was brought over by a visiting co-worker from the China office a few days ago.  It was a good gesture although, apparently, others may not like the snack much.  The conversation went like this:

Person A: I wish they have chocolate in China
Person B: Have you been to China before?
Person A: WHY would I want to go to a third world country like China?

I was there but didn’t want to participate in that conversation.  First of all china is not a third world country and it doesn’t matter even if it were.  I wonder whether that comment would have been made or been worse if I were not there.

Regardless, It hurt.
