Subject: RE: Suspect Physical Abuse--What to do?
SharonA,

This is a person of great personal dignity, very professional, very knowledgeable--since she is the "expert" even the people who employ her must defer to her. She speaks softly, but what she says goes. Maybe it is possible to sit an office chum down and give her a stern lecture, and you might be able to talk that way to a fellow waitress, but believe me, even others in her profession talk to each other with deference--LRMole, you are so right. In this case, the degrees, her position, really isolate her--

Dr.G, thank you for you thoughts, but please, don't flame anyone, even if it is to make a point, and GUEST and others--I appreciate your interest and enthusiasm, but talking about beating someone up just makes it worse--
