In life, sometimes you have to deliver the bad news to someone. The messenger usually be blamed for the bad news, and that sucks, of course. Sometimes you are just given the responsibility to tell someone the bad news, and you have to say that. You know the consequence that you would be blamed and you would get nagged just because you are the one who deliver the news to them. But because it is very important and no one else could do that, you have to say that. What would you do in that situation?

I usuallly don't take up such responsibilities because I am a bit emotional i'll start crying even before the concerned person starts crying. But when I have no choice but to deliver the bad news,i'll do it straight away. Will not postpond things without saying it or saying it in an indirect waty and all,that will make the person even more tensed and the situation even more worse!! Cheers

I think you were giving the right step. Giving the information directly without postponing would be so much helpful in reducing the bad effects. And how would handle it when the concerned person started to blame you for the bad news? Since you might not really understand the real problem.

Hmmm.. Well I'll not say anything,will just be beside them. Because they'll be out of mind when that's such a bad news and will not know as to what they are doing or saying. We should be matured enough to understand things. They'll surely realise when things fall in place,but getting angry on people and leaving them when they really need us will be the worst act. I dare not to do that. Will try to be beside the concerned person and get him/her out of the situation completely. Will aid them as much as I can Cheers

Wow, you are really thoughtful. I think it is good to be able to act so mature like you did, but not everybody would be able to stay tough when they are delivering the bad news especially to the emotional person. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)

I don't think i have other choice but deliver the bad news directly.now that i was given the responsibility(to tell the bad news),how could i postpone it considering it may have an bad effect or make a great lose to the concerned people.in case of i don't tell him at short notic,eventually i am still the one to be blamed ,even much more sternly,this is the worest consequence i want to see. so,just deliver the bad news bravely,finally he will understand that what i do was best for him

You're so brave and you're right. By giving the news brief and straight to the point it would be the best way to avoid the possibilities of things getting worse. Being blamed for something you didn't do was really horrible, but being responsible if we make things worse by postponing things like that would be so much worse. Thanks for responding hezp

If it's my responsibility to deliver it, I'll deliver it. If I get blamed, I will try not to take it personally.

How can you not take it personally since you are getting blamed for things you didn't do. I think it would be hard to see someone getting so emotional pointing finger at you and telling you things you don't want to hear. But I believe you were so brave to be able to deliver such a bad news.
