"There's a place for crying," Joan says on an episode of Mad Men, "and it's your apartment." This would make sense in an ideal world, but it's not always easy to control yourself in real life.
Witnessing someone cry can be nearly as bad as crying the tears. Some people will just ignore, while others will look concerned, hand out tissues, ask the person if she's OK, or start an all-out conversation. If it was me I'd want to be left alone, so that's what I do. What about you?
