Numb3rs Fic: Decline to State  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #49 - Square


Title: Decline to State
Pairing/Characters: Alan
Rating: G
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Protest
Summary: Alan’s always had the strength of his convictions
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


Just before he graduated college, Alan started applying for jobs. At one company he was given a long application to fill out, but what he read on it disturbed him greatly.

He felt it was wrong of them to ask for that information. He worried the answers might be used to discriminate against applicants.

Since the questions were mandatory, Alan wrote in his own additional options.

For the questions on race and religion he checked the squares he'd made marked 'Decline to State.'

He didn’t get called for an interview, but Alan still felt like he'd made the right decision.

That is so cool and poignant. It sounds like something Alan would do, too. *grin*

Thank you. I hoped people would feel that way.

You found a way to use that prompt! I tried all week-- actually wrote four different attempts, all of which were horrid.

That's totally what he would've done.

^ That was me
This makes 4624 times I've done that.

Re: ^ That was me
LOL! In my case I have to look to see which of 'me' I'm logged in as! ;-)

I had a hard time with this one as well. I tossed quite a few ideas before I decided on this one. Usually the prompts are easy, but for some reason all of the ideas I had for this one were either lame or stretching it.

This one stretches it a bit, but at least it's decent.

Thanks,

Emma
