I hate the situation where people pretend that I don’t exist. It just feel so awkward. I don’t even know what to do.
One very clear example happened in a religious house that I visited a few years ago. I was visiting a seminary for its anniversary. When I arrived, my priest friend asked me whether I would like to accompany him to a retreat house because he had to give sacrament of reconciliation for the young people doing retreat there. Since I had no plan, so I tagged along.
After the confession, the sisters invited the priests (there were a few of them) for tea. My priest friend asked me to come along, so I happily joined them. One of the sister welcomed them at the door of the religious house, so the priests shook hand with the sister. I was the last one, so when it was my turn, the sister suddenly went inside the house. So I thought she didn’t see me. We went in, we sat down. The sisters started serving teas and it was getting weird. She served a cup of tea to every single one of the priest, except me. Not only that, none of the sisters actually talked to me, and I just seemed invisible to them. Honestly, I didn’t even know what to do at that point because it never happened to me before. I never visited the place after that and I rather not to. I just dislike awkward situation where I don’t know what to do.
By far, it was the worst experience I had with religious sisters.
Even thinking about it made me uncomfortable.
