  • I've wondered that myself. Maybe they make themselves feel better about their lives if they make fun of someone else? I don't know some people suck sometimes.

  • they have no self esteem themselves maybe and by belittling someone it makes them feel better? That would be my guess

  • Some people are so unhappy with what they can't change about themselves 9or see that it needs changed) that they have to go about their day trying to "fix" or "save" everyone else. It's silly, but it is.

  • I'm not sure why some people are like this but i cant stand when i meet someone like this. They need to open there eyes and realize they are human just like everyone else they look down on. We are not perfect but neither are they. Plain and simple i could do without all those bitter/ nasty people

  • Just wondering that myself I remember a time where people smile at one another even if they did not speak. Now people give one another the evil eyes and act as if they are the only ones on the street. We really need to get back to be good people to one another.

  • Some people have low self esteem and they think if they are miserable, why should everyone else be happy? They have to bring everyone down with them.

  • I've had this all my life and am still getting it, people are too quick to judge a person before getting to know them personally. I get it from neighbors, strangers and even people from when I was younger. I guess people do this just to make themselves feel better
