I was recently in a meeting and
the discussion turned to temps. 
The talk wasn’t positive. 
I heard how they don’t know anyone or anything
(a temp spends her working days being “new”)
and that there were reasons why
some people were on contract. 

No one in the group remembered
that I was a temp
(albeit a high level one)
but I certainly remembered who in the group 
doesn’t like temps. 

A friend was in a product development meeting.  
The project leader talked disparagingly
about the target customer. 
My friend IS the target customer. 

Two great reminders that
when we talk about “them”,
we don’t know if we’re talking to “them.”
