“Not Your Business” 

I was sure that the woman being insulted was in a bad space.
She didn’t flinch. She just continued to staple notes together while her CEO told the people standing in a circle having coffee that she was an “incapable, erratic nutcase” that needed to be “babied“.
The spitting cow had no children. So, I giggled at the irony of her “baby” gesture. I giggled a little more once she began her presentation about Building Resilient Teams. 
During the break, I approached the fire mouth. I simply said “I find it difficult to accept that sort of talk in my presence.”
We left it there.
Before the next workshop, the woman who had been insulted contacted me. She said “You made my situation worse. You need to stay out. This has nothing to do with you.” 
She was right.
