I have a customer who happens to be a lady, who also happens to be in her mid fourties and who like it or not by her choice is still single albeit a joyful one. A very nice lady, i really like her character of taking things like a pinch of salt. She works in a small company, with 7 or 8 other collegues, all of them are married, and she is the so called odd one out just because she is a spinster.
She is not at all fashionable, very thrifty and her daily working attire could be as boring as one can imagine. We are very close in term of our friendship, but that closeness that we enjoy is beginning to create uneasiness in me not because of her, but from her fellow collegues.
I despise those who make fun of one's gender, race, color, marital status and sexuality, and lately this good friend of mine has been a target of jokes and laughing stock aim at her singlehood, which also happens to involve me as well.
Initially, i thought it was ok when the jokes about us being an item, about how compatible we are, about how nice if she could be my second wife, i really regarded it as just another office joke.
Lately,those jokes have taken the different twist and they had become kind of unsettling for me, now the jokes are told with a lot of sexual innuendos, some have even gone overboard how i could stay forever youthful with having sex with a virgin and many unpleasant ones which the collegues regarded as very mild.
My anger has come to the brim, i told myself if the next trip when i pay my visit there, and if i keep hearing the jokes about me and this spinster (My good friend), i will burn them as if they are in the inferno, but i have ONE big problem though.
One of the biggest joker who happens to be my customer, the person who gives me business.... Please tell me what to do ?
P/S : If i choose to be a gay, single, a spinster, a divorcee, that's my right and you dont have any f**king business in it
