Work Drama



I've not said much about transition drama or the act itself, because there really isn't much to say. I go to work, I wear what I want to wear, I just am me. There's no real drama in that, until today at work.

There are some new guys in the store, who are not overtly hostile, though they are working towards that rapidly.

One is an older man, probably a military retiree, who has started to very loudly and forcefully call me Richard. See, I don't flinch and whine and bitch if someone uses my old name normally, it's the context with how they say it. I have no problem with my parents or family calling me my name, they don't do it to cause pain, it's just been my name to them forever.

This man however knew me as Rachel first, and now uses Richard in a tone as if the real word were 'faggot' or 'queer' and is simply using 'Richard' as a cover.

The second is a new guy, and what is up with him is not entirely confirmed yet, however according to a coworker he said "It better not hit on me" .


I'm not sure what to do yet, if anything. There has been no direct confrontation on either side, and I'm good at taking insults, I've dealt with it my entire life. I'm only going to be here for a few more months etc.
