I wonder if they get that way because of the stress of their job. When I worked at the Jewish Home for the Aging I met the a new doctor straight out of school. This was his very first job. He was so kind, very considerate...he listened and was simply wonderful. After a year he had become exactly like the other doctors there. It was a sad thing to see. I knew that kind wonderful man was hiding somewheres inside that cynical cold person.
