As soon as I mentioned that it was a birth control issue, one of the other receptionists/nurses within hearing range in the office just snorted loudly. And proceeded to have a one-sided conversation over the photocopier with another nurse, about how sinful and against Allah's will birth control is.
I was just speechless at that. The others in the office area didn't really look too pleased either; even the two younger women in hijabs looked shocked at what she was saying. I'm really hoping she's not the one who answers the phone on Monday, as it's going to be hard enough to talk on the bus without getting religion-based attitude on top.
