I have always tried to treat others as i would like to be treated but sometimes its not easy.
Working as i do in a kitchen where you get treated rubbish by both chefs and customers, its unfortunatley hard to do. But you just have to grin and bare it i guess.
Away from work it is alot easier, as I guess im more of an equal than a thing to be used. Although i have found that maybe because of this I have become something of a doormat for people, they finish up talking to me then only come back to me when they are bored or whatever.
I don't know really i guess some people are like that.
