Get the personal attack mug.
What!? You are (in my not so humble opinion) committing the most egregious personal attack on a person’s psyche one can commit.
Hym “I don’t know what you are confused about here! What recourse have you left me here? None. And how does that not constitute a form a personal attack? What, in your head, makes you think we are not on good terms after you started doing this? For the exact reasons you claimed that what they were doing to the other guy is damaging. It’s like a 1 to 1. What you’re doing (On the other hand) is not a 1 to 1 and constitutes ‘piling on.’ And even saying that is just so manipulative it’s unbelievable!”
