Is this OK?
Video: Monologue to camera by actor
So, I went for this job as a waitress, right, and the guy interviewing me seemed fine at first. He asked me heaps of questions about where I’d worked before, and whether I’d be OK with doing an early shift or two every week.
I thought it was all going really well, but then he was like ‘you know you’ll have to take that fabric thing off your head. It’s not really very hygienic’. I just laughed and said ‘well, at least you won’t have to worry about my hair in the food’.
Then he said ‘no, really, I don’t think my customers want to be served by someone who’s a Muslim.’ I tried to explain that I can’t just take my hijab on and off for work, but he got really cross and said ‘oh well, I guess you just don’t want the job that much’.
