Have you ever confronted a person about their bad behaviour towards you are others?
Yes, I would imagine everyone has spoken up to someone in their life. If one has an ounce of self-esteem they're not going to allow people to continue to mistreat or walk all over them.
Yes, I stood up for myself when a Supervisor at work mistreated me. He took the medicines that I was about to administer to patients without telling me first. The patients were waiting for their medications and I was trying to find them. Later after I got so stressed the Supervisor told me that he did not know it was mine and that he took it because I am not suppose to leave them lying around. Okay I might have made a mistake by leaving them somewhere but to take it and hide it in their office without telling me is wrong. To this day I can't forget the incident. My manager took me in her office to ask me why I made the supervisor a baddie by telling every colleague what he did was wrong. But I still think I was in the right. I gave him a piece of my mind and I am glad I did because I was livid for what he done to me. I am not afraid to stand up for myself if I know I was right.
Hi liesl5858, hopefully he learned his lesson and the next time he won't take something without clearing it with the staff first. I think bosses are sometimes the worst at it.
He thought I was weak because I don't say a lot unless I had to, well he was wrong.
Yes I have. I can unfortunately report with 100% honesty that when I have been courteous or even nice about it I got absolutely no results, no change in behavior or even an agreement to. But, when I gave them a dose of their own medicine verbally or through my actions, that made them stop their bad behavior.
I used to be like that too. But you learn the hard way that they don't get you respect or results.
As I grow, I find that those who treat others with unprovoked bad behavior are not people I want to be around or have in my life, life is too short. Also, I am lucky to work from home & have much more control over who I "must" interact with.
Not so much in day to day life, since i apparently give off the impression of someone not to royally tick off.
The interwebs on the other hand, its basically a daily thing. No results as of yet, even when i give specific examples of x person's behavior. I have found it quite surprising the amount of denial that goes on even when you have such evidence.
Yes, unfortunately to relatives. People take things out on the ones they love at times. I do not know why that happens, as my parents taught me to be kind to others. i hate confrontation but learned to do it in my work. Some people have angry streaks or jealous streaks, and we hope they keep these tendencies in control. My daughter is also kind and gets frustrated at the way people in customer service and sometimes coworkers treat her.When we become frustrated, with others, being assertive and in control is the only way for me to handle bad behavior in others.
Certainly. If I may use a famous quote, however a bit looser than it's original wording...."The best way for bad (evil) to spread is for the good to say or do nothing." I'm sure you are familiar with the quote I'm rephrasing here.
In my career, more often than not having been the Supervisor or Manager, In keeping with my responsibilities I had no choice but to confront. Being in charge of others and responsible for a smooth-running operation, it's fairly easy to know what we must do, like or not.
In my personal life, I could never and would never stand idly nor silently by as an adult mistreated or even spoke harshly to a child...or for that matter an elderly/frail individual. What sort of a person would simply choose to "avoid a confrontation" rather than step in between a bully and a victim? Not I, that's for certain.
As for someone's behavior toward me? It's very rare that anyone is intentionally rude or insulting toward me, because I treat people with respect. However there's always that one misfit who likes to give it a try. I will make sure I look them directly in the eyes....and then laugh hysterically at them as I walk away. They aren't worth any more effort than that.
