I hate when “big” people take advantage of others, but when they take advantage of me I usually tell on them to some authority figure I trust.
this gets limited results but it beats turning into a bully like they are.
I had a pdoc once and for the longest while that was so mean to me, like a bully almost. he was considered a real “big” doctor but he didn’t do kindly to me. I tell myself I ain’t gonna be one of those that sing his praises or love him in return for THAT.
