Gossip Folk / More advice


Continuing from yesterday, someone asked me if there was a lesson to be learned from what happened to me. Here's my answer:

Avoid gossip folk.

The woman that took my scratch was the local gossip. I thought she was harmless. Lesson learned.

When I'm out and about, I constantly see guys call a girl a hottie one second and a bitch the instant their game goes south. And that's always when static starts and I get gone. People always cut you down with words before they cut you down with anything else.

Before it became part of WWII, the beef between China and Japan was called the Sino-Japanese War, Shina being being a racist word in Japanese. In fact, all of WWII can be seen as step-by-step escalations of evil starting with simple words.

In this blog, the only person I criticize (relentlessly) is myself. I've now made it a point to avoid gossip-folk, even cutting an entire raft of friends. Cause if they gossip about others, they gossip about you. And if they gossip about you, they don't respect you. And if they don't respect you, well then...

I think evil people can't help it. They can hide everything else, but the gossip. The one scene I remember from JHS reading Julius Caesar was where Cassius starts it all up by leaning over to Brutus and whispering, The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

I shoulda known better. I shoulda paid attention in seventh grade English class.

Avoid gossip folk.

That's my advice.
