Each Time I Bring It Up, It Seems To Bring You Down
Four people cried today.
Four people whose lives were in such a state that they ended up sobbing to a stranger on the telephone. I don't really mind when people weep. I can usually cope with it in a detatched, "Don't worry about it", "Take your time", "Make yourself a nice cup of tea/large gin and tonic" [delete as applicable] kind of a way.
But it doesn't usually happen four times in one day. That has to be some kind of record.
And I'm sorry, but I confess, when I'd dispatched the person who was blubbing because they didn't get to see a Robbie Williams Tribute Act, I did snigger.
Borrowed "Bullying and Sexual Harassment" and "Working With Difficult People" from the library on Saturday. May need to read them yet.
