Why do we do it?

<< < (8/8)

I sometimes take it even further and "assume" someone who is trying to hurt me is "kidding" or just simply so off base I couldn't possibly take what they have said seriously. It catches people off guard and frankly makes me feel better (and hopefully makes them feel either worse or ineffective in their attempted bullying).

I should also point out the difficulties in some subcultures where people are willing to respond directly to being "disrespected". This can lead to a small incident growing into physical altercations.

It's a matter of finding a happy medium to exist as a (relatively) peaceful society without having some people feeling forced to endure horrid treatment.
