EMPATHY

And another thing that has always bored me to tears....
Why is it when someone gets embarrassed, one or two people have to point out the fact to the embarrassee? "Ooh you've gone all red", they say or "You've gone a bright pink you know", as if the person in the hot seat somehow doesn't know. Talk about calling a spade a spade! When I see someone embarrassed I can only empathize (as I spent most of my growing up years embarrassed for one reason or another, I'm British after all) so I just smile and try not to cause further embarrassment.
