Mean people. Jerks. Assholes. Bitches. Whatever your word for them, you’ve run into them. And haven’t we all walked away, shaking our heads (or wiping away tears), flabbergasted at such unnecessary harshness? As much as we think these people are aliens from a colder, nastier planet–fact is, they are humans too. So, why are mean people mean? And how the hell do we deal with them? This week, Maayan and Lauren recount their sad stories of dealing with meanies, and admit to times when even THEY, angelic as they normally are, have showed signs of a mean streak.
