Well recently she's just been really awkward, and when we had a conversation about stuff all she would say is 'i don't believe in that' or 'my religion doesn't believe in that' because she's Muslim. It even got so far as her saying she 'hates all Hindu's'. I mean i understand that people don't have the same beliefs but it's getting so annoying now. Yesterday we drove past a Reiki place and we were talking about what it was and next to me she pipes up and says 'oh i don't believe in that' i was so tempted to turn around to her and say 'well there isn't much outside your religion you do believe in is there?' but i held my tongue.
But it's not just the fact that she's like this, we like to sometimes just sit and talk with support worker about stuff generally and this girl spends the whole time on her phone playing fruit ninja! It's like you can't be a social worker if you can't talk to people, otherwise your just like every other useless social worker! Not just that but she seems to be scared of every single animal! She's scared of dogs (ok can understand that), she's scared of cats (fair enough they can be quite temperamental), she's scared of fish.....yeah....ok that one i can't really justify. She said she likes baby animals but doesn't like them when they grow up :S that to me just sounds so stupid its unreal. I guess i have never really been around someone that is SO closed minded before.
It's really hard because she wants to become a lawyer after she's done her social work course but if she's this closed minded about other religions how is she going to be able to do that? How is she properly going to be able to represent someone if she hates them so much?
I don't know i feel so bad saying she can't come here any more but she just upsets husband all the time and makes things so awkward that she's been given the name 'conversation killer' now. We've never had this problem with student before, so quite shocked really.
What would you do in this situation?
