In the last few years I've seen more people just NEEDING to belittle others, say things that aren't true to provoke or hurt others, or just plain be nasty to others. Usually for no real reason.
People have gone MAD. They're nasty and don't give a damn about anyone else any more. There is no community. There is no love for your fellow man. Its really sickening how its truly getting out there. People are eaten up inside from something and its making then stark raving lunatics.
I've lost a few jobs because I have no problem with telling people who are being malicious that I won't hesitate to pop them right in the nose if they continue. If someone has a problem with me, legitimate or imagined, they are welcome to discuss it like a civilized human being and get a civilized response in return. If they just need a scapegoat for their insecurities or a whipping boy then they're out of luck with me.
No one with one iota of moxy need ever suffer the condescending, abusive rantings of someone with poor impulse control. As you can see from my signature, I butt right in to any situation where I see abuse going on, public or private. Silent consent and being "polite" in those situations is what allows them to continue.
I mean in front of the customers and making this kid who was our waitress cry!
