If I Make You Cry

There are certain personalities in this world that I do not comprehend.

There are those who make you cry* and then respond, "Oh no!  I'm so sorry!  What did I do?  How can I make it better?  How can we prevent this from happening in the future?"

Then there are those who make you cry* and respond, "It really hurts my feelings that you react that way.  You know I didn't mean anything by it."

You all can guess which personality type it is that I do not understand.  I'll even go so far as to say that the second type mentioned is selfish and inconsiderate.  Yeah, I judged.  But if I cry in your presence and you don't even care enough about me to care about anything except that it makes you feel uncomfortable, well, let me be the first to excuse myself from your company and avoid you in the future at all costs. 

For the record, I am not a crier, but sometimes life dishes up too much to handle and I have a good, cleansing, salt-water bath for my eyes and soul.

*I recognize no one makes you cry, but they can be an influence towards tears.  But who wants to say "influence towards tears" instead of "makes you cry?"

Do I know this person you are referring to? Do I need to punch them even HARDER than I was planning on?
