Your friend is cynical, and you're more of a realist.
In my life I find the percentage very high,perhaps 95%,but then my situation isnt common,Im gang stalked/community mobbed.
I really wouldn't want to guess that number....and considering it is adults we are talking about, everyone has done something that could in some way, shape or form be considered cruel. It's human nature, it's a part of life. There are degrees of course, from the truly heinous to the unthoughtful comment.
Your friend has never been to EP
If 95% of people are cruel, then I must live in an area where the 5% live because almost all the people I know are compassionate and kind. There are a few I would call cruel. My statistics are more like 95% are kind and 5% cruel.
LOL! Sure, you're always welcome...but, I'm in the suburbs in NJ. People have this thing about NJ. I don't get it!
