I discovered today that the word 'asset' is not an appropriate word to describe a person. As in, "Bob is an asset to the company."

By writing of Bob in this manner, I am implying that Bob is slave of his company.

Did not know that. So when I suggested the word 'resource,' I was told this was much, much more acceptable.

I'm not really sure what the difference is except that the word 'asset' is often used in financial terms, but if you have a bit of an open mind or a dictionary around, you may discover that neither word is really a good word to use when describing a person. Maybe one sounds more fluffy than the other, but really, in the sense 'asset' was used above, they are the same.

I also realized today that I have nothing about me to use in the diversity struggle. Nothing. I'm a cheez-it.
