My daughter, in college, started new job today working with people in a home who can't care for themselves. Fairly high-functioning but need help cooking, cleaning, some self-care, and making sure all runs smoothly at the home. She takes them to the bank because they have accounts. Guy in line starts loudly taunting them, calling them "retards." She is so angry, on verge of tears, but not wanting to respond for fear of further upsetting her charges. What do you do? :(
