Mind Your Own Business, Bitch!

Mind Your Own Business, Bitch!I have to say that there have been a few times that I’ve been told that something was none of my business. Ok, I’ve heard that a lot, daily almost.

I’ve been told that it wasn’t my business when someone freaked out that their laundry didn’t dry in four minutes. No, it’s technically “not” my business, but you are making someone cry, she hasn’t the strength to tell you that you are a ridiculous moron, but I’m good to go!

It may not be my business that your three-year old is terrorizing your one year old, but I’m going to say or do something, beware. I’ve always been told “it takes a village to raise a child”, that just means, yes, I’m going to yank the piece of wood out of your kid’s hand. He’s beating his little brother half to death while you are ordering a coffee.

It may not be my business that you allowed a seventeen year old to die in your home.

It may not be my business that you just ran over a cat and didn’t care.

It may not be my business that you left your child, dog, motherΒ or sandwichΒ in a hot car.

It may not be my business but that doesn’t mean I am going to keep quiet. Keeping my nose out of other people’s business, that is completely foreign to me. It means I’m entirely unaware what is happening around me and don’t care. How can I not care? These are elderly, animals, the environment, the government, the homeless and the lions!!!! What about the lions??

Who needs someone like YOU to get in their business? Look around, someone is there, they need you.

  1. Thank you!! I do the same! If people are stupid enough to not get off their damn cell phone and watch their kids, or keep them sitting down in a shopping cart versus falling out on their heads.. You better believe I will say something. I saw a woman kick a little girl right in her backside.. Getting in the car from a trip to a video store. I was at work and not allowed to walk outside. Stupid people shouldn’t breed. Been saying this for years. ☺. Thanks for your wonderful blog… Because I am skinny and single too. And it’s πŸ‘Œ. Just sent my verbally abusive and mentally draining boyfriend of eight years to the curb. Two weeks ago tonight!!! πŸ‘Š βœ‹ πŸ‘† πŸ‘‡. And it was just three days before my daughter was married!! πŸ’• πŸ’•. I am free now. Free. And I am still going to bit@ch at people being ignorant and stupid. Just how I am. Thanks again!! 😍

      • Thanks… I always try to do the right thing…. And I bitch as needed. ☺. I have been divorced since 1998. I don’t want to look for Mr Right. I liked being married. Just not his infidelity. Ahem…

  2. I, too, become appalled at situations and have a hard time keeping my mouth shut. But I also know what it’s like to be at the receiving end of my own self-righteous indignation.

    It might feel good to lay into someone who has tread on the temple of our indignation, but we then have to accept that at some point they are going to tread on the temple of ours.

    This is a great topic for a post.

  3. I have the hardest time keeping my mouth shut and that lands me in trouble more times than not but… I still speak my mind regardless. I guess silence will come with age. I wish I could keep my mouth shut sometimes.

  4. Brilliant – globally starts locally. Love people like you. And it does take a whole village to raise a child. If there was more of that going on instead of insular family life, our children would be better citizens in the end. Great post!
