So my coworkers and I were sent to “sensitivity training”

The lady running it said, “you have to use the right words to refer to people, because you don’t want to offend them. Instead of ‘policeman’, say ‘police officer’. Instead of ‘fireman’ say ‘firefighter’. Don’t say ‘chairman’, say ‘chairperson’.”

“Um, excuse me,” I said, “I think they prefer to be called people with disabilities’.”
