NSV or human bias - you decide!
Thursday, November 15, 2012
I went to Lowe's yesterday, and spent some time in the flooring department planning my next project. Ten men stopped (one or two at a time) to ask me if I needed assistance with anything, I thanked them, said no, and continued with my planning.
40 lbs ago, I was in the same department at the same store looking at similar items. And how many people stopped to ask if I needed assistance then?
Now, you tell me - is this overweight bias? Or is this just another NSV?
The positive attention made me feel good, yet a part of me was irritated at the same time!
Let me just say this, I always have carried myself confidently, so that is not the issue here. My behavior cues were the same, I'm sure. So I decided to take it as an NSV and not dwell on mans' inhumanity of man !
