It never ceases to amaze me the levels of stupidity people will resort to. People will interfere in someone else’s argument without having all the facts. Without having all the facts, unwise judgments are made, which results, most of the time, with people flapping their gums and spreading gossip and slander to anyone who will lend them a listening ear.
If some people are gossiping about you, it should be understood that if they are not gossiping about you, they are gossiping about someone else. Those who are flapping their gums are getting all up in your business because they don’t have a life of their own. They will badmouth, backbite, slander, and lie because they have nothing better to do. However, when they do so, they are involving themselves in something they have no business getting involved in. They are too wrapped up in flapping their gums because they are filled with hatred, anger, and jealousy. What they do not realize is that they have no self-control as they are salivating looking for the next dainty morsel to share with others who are all too eager to listen.
It is shameful and embarrassing when gossipers do not have all the facts but will pontificate as if they have all the facts. Has anyone considered that gossiping and interfering in someone else’s argument is like yanking the ear of a wild dog and expecting it not to take a bite out of him or her? If they should attempt to yank on the ears of a “wild dog,” why should anyone feel bad for them? They are simply reaping what they have sown, and they deserve whatever consequences they get.
