I do. cause i feel humiliated when some one correct or rebuke in public whether i was wrong or not. cause i think that they should do that only when we get alone only and no one is listening or seeing or overhear our conversation. to spare me the shame. i think that those people who would like to rebuke or say some words to correct us are kind of insensitive to the feelings of other people sometimes they will shout at you in anger in public. sometime people will not see us but will over hear the discussion. like here in our home. sometimes one member of the family will just be angry and will should in anger and will just try to tell thing that should be private withint the family. but since in our neighborbood are so close to each other that you could easily over hear what the neighbor is hearing when shouting. sometimes they were not shouting but still you can still hear what is being said. as long sa the conversation is done in normal voice.

I can't stand people who do this. They act like they are better than everyone else. Bosses like to do this. Correcting or yelling at someone in front of others is so uncalled for. I just feel like they are on a power trip and have no class at all. They should wait till they are alone and explain the problem in a reasonable tone of voice. That would be having class.

yes, they are those people who are just so puffed up with their status in life or work. and i can't stand them too. sometimes i wish them not good in life. but of course i don't want to feel that way cause it is wrong. but sometimes i just can't help it to feel that way.

I feel humiliated too when someone is talking to me in loud voice or is reprimanding me for something in front of many people and when the people turn to look at me I feel both angry and embarassed because they may be having a point of view about me which is not me.

Of course I will be humiliated. That's why I always took the ones that piss me off to secluded place before lecturing. Being reprimanded in front of other, even only a person can be really embarrassing. Regardless of the situation, always talk in a low voice, even no matter how angry you are. If you really need to shout, find a deserted place first.

you are good person that you don't want to humiliate the person and have the person talked with privately to spare his feeling being insulted and humiliated in front of other people. hope that more people will be decent and considerate toward other people's feelings.

Hi hotsummer...I think it is absolutely horrible that someone would do that to another person. I have had that happen to me and I've felt terrible as a result. I have never done that to another person specifically due to that reason - I don't like it done to me. Things said in anger are horrible mostly but we have to remember that once the words come out, there is no putting them back in. I try to remember that also. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. However I don't correct or rebuke someone in public. It's just wrong and people who do that are just trying to feel better about themselves and make themselves more important than they truly are.
