Yakety-Yack: Talkin’ Behind Your Back

Yakety-Yack: Talkin’ Behind Your Back


Life is so strange. As soon as you are up something may knock you down. I am not talking about physically (yet some hangovers can be worse than others). What I am talking about is when you hear a rumor about yourself that you never knew before a.k.a. someone is talking behind your back? Why do people do this?

Nothing better to do?
No life?
Needs (more) friends.
Needs a better job.
Needs to get on more social media.

I am not one to shy away from contacting people straight away when I hear my name in other people’s mouths in a less than favorable way. My suggestion to people who insist on talking about other people while not present is as follows:

Get your own life and focus on that because that is a good rule of thumb. I am sure your boss appreciates it.

Backs can’t respond as well as fronts can (especially mine).

If you have something to say about someone, say it to his or her face. Communication is the key to happiness. Duh?

If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it all. (Didn’t your mom teach you this?)

Don’t complain when it happens to you because you probably are getting a huge helping served from that good old gal named karma.

If you are so inclined to talk about someone behind their back, stop bite your tongue and make an effort to find out where you are lacking in your own life leading to this cancerous behavior.

If you have something to say and it is nice make sure you quote them right.


Leave my name out of your mouth unless you are quoting me of kissing my ass


**Stay snarky my friends!**

    I dont worry if people are talking behind my back. My responsee is a tad more crude because frankly I dont care if they do but to keep it cllean “Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” — Bernard Baruch

    You know, it’s hard to understand someone wasting their time with that kind of kindergarten nonsense. Sorry you have to be subjected to it. Ugh.
