So this happened today, and I was just so baffled I didn't even how to respond and wanted to share it with you guys.
Basically, this is the last week of my internship for my communications design diploma. So, I was at the office today and at the end of the day, the boss (31 years-old) sat at the row behind me (it is an Open Space). As they were chatting with a colleague, the subject comes to cleft lips (I don't even remember why though, lol). Basically they were talking about how gross they think it is and everything you can imagine.
The weird part is that they've treated me well during all the internship and I'm pretty sure they don't even know I have a cleft. I honestly did not know how to react. I was boiling hearing them talking (even though I vowed to myself to remain stoic to such speech), yet I just stood there silently (75% of my day in any circumstances), feigning work.
If it can cheer you up, one of the younger employees said she knew a little girl with a cleft palate and how well it was repaired, even though she had to endure a lot of surgeries.
I've been spinning my head since to think of a witty comeback to out myself and try to challenge their ideas tomorrow.
