    Yea Keeper Her Down

    I hated taking part. I could not understand at first what I was doing when I was young. But I soon learnt my lesson. From the receiving end and watching a old friend being humiliated at junior school. Kids can be so cruel. When It's grown adults it down right out of order...

    Always Stick Up For Underdog

    I can't stand to see someone being picked on or disrespected.  I will sometimes stand up for them even if I don't really see their side of things. When I see someone being "crushed" I feel an almost compulsive desire to stick up for them. My Dad always used...

    Competetive

    I cant stand to see parents looking down to their children. That is why they get so screwed up. Everyone makes a mistake. It just takes people alot longer to learn from them. People them down and telling them they are worthless does not help matters much.

    I don't see it for very long

    About two years ago, I went to a garage station, inside there's a Tim Horton's.  I don't recall what he said exactly but the manager put down the young employee.  it seems as she was about to cry.  It was said right in front of me while I was at the cash.  I politely stood...

    for people being criticized. I cannot handle watching another person in pain, it physically hurts. Even if they did something wrong, watching people being put down makes me uneasy. 😔

    Hate to See Someone Being Put Down

    I hate to see people put down.  I was a victim of bullying through most of my school years.  Any time I see someone being put down, I tend to make it my business.

    See Red

    I cannot stand when someone puts another person down unnecessarily...especially when its someone who can't or won't defend themselves. I find it incredibly immature and unnecessary. The need to attack another simply to see them bleed is incomprehensible in my book.

    I don't like to see anyone put down, even if they deserve it. There are things people do that I disagree with, but I'm not one to stand there and insult someone to get some kind of imagined revenge. If someone hurts my feelings, I might get a little defensive and lash out, but...
