My ex would smirk at my exhausted struggles. No wonder he wanted me back. I was a great source of entertainment!
He is right. Just cut to the chase and call them assholes. I have a wicked sense of humour so if I have ever laughed at you when you were genuinely hurt, I am sorry. My mother did not even approve of those shows where we laugh at people having accidents. I must admit they did at least used to inform you that the people were actually OK and probably even interview them afterwards. Nowadays we all just laugh.
We have been subtly weaned off the whole idea of empathy.
Now we can watch anonymous people getting hurt or killed on You Tube and nobody cares.
