How do YOU Deal with Cruel People

Jun 08, 2018 11:36 PM

Two days ago I experienced co-workers being insensitive and cruel to a fellow pain sufferer, and I got pissed beyond my limit , I work in a business environment that from time to time requires strenuous lifting, bending and emptying a really heavy mail bin. The lady came out on the Data processing floor almost in tears because she said both of her arms were in pain, the other workers made jokes,ridiculed her and even a mockery of what some of us noticed was causing her great pain. I understanding what she must of felt offered to help by offering her assistance , but as others laughed my 1st instinct was to call them simple minded &$@#. Because I didn’t find it funny , when another worker notice how my eyes were watering up and how upset I was getting he told me would handle it because he see I was about to get really mad. My question is how do any of you pain sufferers handle insensitive , friends , relatives or acquaintances ??????
