Recently, I am bogged down with very unpleasant experience with someone who thinks they are superior and smarter than others by literally and openly labelling someone as stupid. I am not sure if anyone agree with me, I categorized this as verbal harassment.
While many people will associate the word "stupid" and "smart" when describing a person, it is one of the word that we need to use with care. I work with some of the greatest production workers, they are not stupid. In fact, I think they are one of the few smartest people in the area that they are working at. I am amazed with their creativity handling difficult situation. Although sometimes, they made me panic, I still value them.
I would like to remind us to look at people around us, that they are not merely another person that helps you achieve your goals, but truly, a community member that worth caring for. Together, we can build a caring community!
