I was working with a Veteran's group at a job expo yesterday. They know me because I help enroll the residents of one of their homes into outreach programs they may not know about. The group asked me in advance to be part of their booth at this particular event because they thought it would be beneficial to many of the attendees. One of the women running the event, which is part of the local Career Center of the Department of Labor, walked around to each booth to inform the vendors that a catered lunch was being served in a room downstairs. I commented that I did not know they were serving lunch (many of these type of events do not) and it was really thoughtful of them to do that. She looked at me and sniped, "Oh, you're not an employer, are you..." I said that I myself was not but I was there as a provider. It was obvious that I was there working with the Veteran's group. Then she said, "Oh, well then you don't get lunch..." and moved on to the next group. One of the guys who was part of my booth (who was entitled to lunch) said I should just go anyway and make a plate. I said if she made that a point to tell me I could not have it, I didn't want to get them in trouble. I brought my own lunch anyway.
