Thank you all for your answeres! They are very helpful.
I do feel like I should explain a little bit though… I work in a factory. I stand on one side of the conveyor belt. The one girl was on the other side directly in front of me and the girl she was talking to was next to her. They were speaking loudly, but this could be because of all the machinery noise, you have to speak loudly to be heard. Everybody always chats while they work; if we don’t, we risk going crazy. Normally, everyone joins in everyone else’s conversation. If you want privacy, you save it till after work. So, all this being said, I don’t really feel like I was eavesdropping, or that I would have been interrupting a private conversation. (Actually, one of the girls later commented that I had been awfully quiet during their conversation. I just smiled and shrugged.)
We were all working diligently the entire time, so I’m not really worried about what my employer thinks or what I’m getting paid to do.
I suppose you meant to say she doesn’t have a problem with homosexuals getting married, NOT heterosexuals; otherwise, that conversation must have been really weird!
Sorry, I should have been more clear on that. She was saying that she believes heterosexuals have the right to get married and she doesn’t see why we can’t have the same consideration for homosexuals. Sorry about that.
All of this being said, do you still feel the same way? :shrug:
