  •  Something similar happened to me (28+ / 0-)

    I was talking to a couple of co-workers about a pasta sauce that I liked to make from a powder that comes in a packet. (Yes, I know, but it really IS good.) So the next time I was at the store I impulsively bought two packets of it and gave it to each of the co-workers.

    I was heavily into prehistoric Irish and Celtic history at the time, which of course includes the Druids, but I am not Wiccan and don't practice any religion at all.

    One of them (who was a paranoid type--she told me another co-worker had spit in her coffee) made the sauce and then accused me of "putting a spell on it" that made her pee smell funny the next day after she ate it.

    I remember thinking, "Dude, that is the LAMEST spell ever." I said to her, "If I could do something like that, would I be working HERE? Wouldn't I have spelled myself up a personal assistant to George Clooney type of job?" Seriously, why would someone put a spell on a car to not make the heater work? Why? What is the point of that? It's LAME! If you have that kind of power, why be lame?

    I'm not working there anymore, in case you were wondering. I told the story at my next job and my boss and co-workers always teased me about being a witch. That made it less hurtful. I can laugh about it now. But at the time it really was hurtful because I had tried to do something nice and she threw it back at me in that way.
