it blows my mind the kind of mentality some people have here... victim blaming is a horrible thing ... its beyond rude and ignorant - telling ME, that I probably deserved being screamed at, deserved to be verbally harassed, and threatened with physical violence for 20 minutes straight, and made to feel like my life was in danger, when I did absolutely NOTHING wrong at all, and treated the customers with nothing but calm, professional civility... its truly mind boggling that there are people who would come to the conclusion that I brought this on myself and had it coming... I truly do not know how logic works within the brain of certain people. thanks to those that offered some supportive, and/or helpful info... as for the others - some of you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Honestly, this post pretty accurately sums up EXACTLY what is wrong with society today.
People have been conditioned to be emotionally driven, which makes them easy to manipulate and decreases their tendency to rationally think their way through life (We just witnessed over the past couple of years what happens when people allow themselves to be controlled by fear, BTW). Combine that with an ever-increasing sense of entitlement and you can see why people just no longer have the tools necessary to interact positively with those around them.
