I know, we all do it. Does that make it okay?
In my defense, I do try to examine my motives and statements. True, it's always after the fact and I don't always revisit the person or situation, but it's a start ... right?
I've worked for the same employer since 1991 and have never taken advantage of my right to take breaks during the work day. I never looked down on others who did. I think my thoughts were more along the lines of not wanting to negatively affect the person I work under. I've worked under this same person over 5 years and have watched how careful they are to get what's rightfully/contractually theirs and I've hope I've been supportive. They're probably who finally inspired me to do the same.
I'd like the same support, without any shaming.
Today my goal is to find a way to bring this up. Wish me luck in careful presentation and wording ...
