If I feel I have a real connection with you, you are someone I have known for a long time, then I may, possibly, listen to your sad story. I sort of feel that I need to be there for you, and to be truly sincere and try and help.
But, if you are just another phony, political hack with a chronic case of verbal diarrhea, get the hell out of my face!!!
I have actually got to sit and chat with a boss or two about being "blunt." If you are an insincere, backstabbing, hateful person, don't expect me to care, listen, or pretend to care or listen. If you have real hurt and need, and there is something I can do, even listening, I will be there for you.
