If someone had scolded you but it is not your fault, how will you react? Will you be sad? Or you can just ignore it?

Probably more angry than sad, but I am definiitely not one to let things like that go. What about you?

I will initially not tell anything to the angry person as that will be useless...Then I will try to explain that I wasn't in fault and if the person refuses to understand then just leave it and forget it..with some time the person will obviously see reason and if doesn't then its that person's fault..Have a nice day!

Hi there arronc! Well, I would most probably defend myself. If it happened to me in front of other people, I do not know but I might react differently. It happened to me at work a couple of times before and I made sure that I did not just ignore it. I made sure that they got a dose of their own medicine!

I will try upto my level to make him sure that I did not do mistake. Even he continues to scold, I will ignore his sayings and I will go to my work then.

I figure like this. I am a grown woman that is mature and I feel that I should be at the age where I can react in an adult matter to a certain situation. Being scolded could have its reasons and I can take something like criticism if I can in a responsible way. I am usually an accountable person for my actions. I might have reacted sadly a long time ago when I was a lot younger but I believe that with age comes growth and I have done my fair share of growing in that respect. I can also ignore things if I have to however I do get my feelings hurt from time to time because I am only human. Some people can't handle being scolded but they just need to talk it out with the person like I would and figure out how to handle the problem in the correct manner. That is what life pretty much is all about. Learning to take thins as they come and accepting things that happen in life. I might need to tell somebody something that they don't like one day and I would expect that they handle it in a mature way as I do. I don't mean that I would want to hurt anyone, however sometimes the truth can hurt and you have to be honest.
