Sometimes you find yourself in interesting #work related situations where you must deal with someone you have reason to dislike for #ethical reasons & yet because of #respect you have for the OTHERS in the room you choose to maintain a #professional decorum. Like when my #client at the time paid me to help host his #fundraiser then sprung on me that his best #friend #Mayor #RobFord was going to be the #keynote speaker. I wasnt a #Ford fan and Rob knew it. He had sent me a friend request when he first became Mayor and friended all of Mayor Millers friends. Then he unfriended me (lolol) 2 years later when I publicly reamed him for supporting Harper in the fed #election. Anyway we knew each other and he looked really nervous when he walked in the room and saw me. But in my professional role not my activist role I simply said, "Good afternoon, Rob." And no joke he looked pretty relieved. Interestingly - and this will not happen in the new situation I'm thinking of cause there is a difference between #political differences and personal #history, but in the Rob Ford situation I ultimately was kind to him since it was while he was trying to recover from #cancer so I said " we are opponents. And i know a lot of people who also deeply disagree w you that knew i was going to be seeing you tonight and they all asked me to extend our best wishes for your #recovery." Dude legit looked like he was going to cry when he thanked me for that. Later he heard I was running for school board and apologized for not mentioning that from the stage. I said i wouldnt have expected the mayor to acknowledge that, and that I was "just getting my feet wet" in politics. He laughed and said "look out, its addictive."
It was a more than civil exchange. Got a pic and everything though my expression is a little funny. Like in my other pics with Rob (R.I.P)
I mentioned it to Doug Ford (who I oppose even more) when I spoke to him briefly during the provincial election. Got a pic with him too and my expression is even funnier.
Anyway. Point is. Sometimes in the #PR life you find yourself in a room with someone you otherwi....(see comments for rest...)
