The Wall Street Journal says it has become more acceptable to shed tears at work. An expert blames the extra crying on young people. They're seen as more comfortable showing all kinds of emotions. And they're perfectly willing to weep if they get negative feedback. This includes men, who are getting more in touch with their feelings.
Call me a Neanderthal, but real men (and women, for that matter) don't cry when they receive negative feedback. If you're ever confronted by such a person, mock -- don't comfort -- them.
