There's an old saying. If you don't want someone to join a crowd, you ask them, "If everyone were jumping off of a cliff, would you?" Well, I have. So my answer would be "Yes". True story.

HOROSCOPE: OFFENSIVE COWORKER HAS ASKED YOU TO STOP TALKING ABOUT POLITICS
with love from CRS @ 3:11 PM
this entry brought to you by santa esmeralda, "don't let me be misunderstood"
The guy at your work who cannot resist shoving his phone in your face to show you forwarded pictures of black people eating watermelon with offensive captions, frequently describes sex acts with the new girl in a voice loud enough to be overheard, derisively chides the homosexual in your workplace as "that pansy", and laughs with a distinct thundering "BWAHAHA!" while slapping you on the shoulder, has requested that you stop talking about politics in the workplace.
"Listen, you don't need to bring that shit here, not everyone necessarily agrees with you, you don't want to offend anyone unnecessarily," the coworker has said to you. "You don't want anyone going to HR for something as stupid as politics."
"I'm not saying I'm offended, I'm just trying to help you out here," the coworker added.
UPDATE: The heated, profanity-filled arguments over which baseball team is going to win Sunday's game can be voluminously heard between this coworker and someone else. People who are further away from the argument who cannot hear the topic will later say they thought a fist fight was about to ensue.
