Should I protest?
So I'm all smiley and happy at the end, and have a few thoughts about what to do next with a situation at work. Everyone is packing up their bags. I put the presenter's business card in my bag. I'm telling the other people at my table that it's been nice to meet them. I decide to sign up for the presenter's weekly e-mail. It's all good.
...and then the presenter's final words to us are "God bless you."
Nobody had sneezed.
So... I'm totally offended like, why end a good session with an insipid Christian sentiment? I could complain to our HR department guy who runs these things, or send an e-mail to the presenter, or I could keep quiet about it. It was just the one line when half the room wasn't really paying attention anymore, but it was uncalled-for and irrelevant to the session. Any thoughts?
