poor guy!...

I think this is a good time to stop and think about the difference in meaning between empathy and sympathy...



Sympathy is a feeling or expression of pity for the distress of others. Empathy is an identification with and understanding of another's situation.

It would be very remarkable indeed if any of us felt any empathy at all for this guy. How unempathatic -.-
