This week on Reddit's perennially popular sub AmItheAsshole, a man asked if he's wrong for 'requesting prayer breaks' at work. The majority of his colleagues practice a religion that requires them to pray multiple times per day, necessitating breaks throughout work hours. This time amounts to an additional half-hour they're compensated for. Though he's an atheist, he asked his boss for time to meditate and she - perhaps fearing legal retribution - acquiesced. It's caused tension in the office. Now he wants to know: is he the @sshole here?

I’m an atheist who works in an international company in a very busy city.

I have a lot of coworkers who come from a certain religious background that requires them to pray multiple times a day. I would say 90% of my coworkers share this faith and maybe 70-80% of them take the time out to go pray everyday.
