The Name Game
However childish it may be, all of us have either been involved or still currently get involved in what I like to call "The Name Game." The classic game of he-said-she-said. It's a situation in which a so called "friend" comes to you with lurid details about how another individual was talking mad sh*t about you. Hell, its such a real situation that occurs that it's the staple of most reality TV shows we watch today.
Well here's the problem with that situation...the "friend" was talking mad sh*t about you too!
1. Why Would That Happen?
How many people do you know that are cool with talking bad to you about your best friend? Generally speaking, they won't do that because they know you are not trying to hear it or will be offended. Me personally, I never hear anything bad about any of my friends, because a person knows if they come to me with that foolery I will set this thing off. Therefore if someone feels comfortable enough to talk to your "friend" about you like a dog it can be assumed that your friend is joining it with tidbits of the conversation.
2. Call Them Out:
So when this "friend" tells you about all the sh*t talking you need to call him/her out. "So what did you say?"..."How long were you letting them sit there and talk about me? It seems like a long time because this is quite detailed." ....yeah and the answer will be straight crickets and or stuttering.
3. Do The Old Fashion Bust Out:
The next thing you do is the following "Oh yeah? Call that bitch up."....let's see what this "hater" has to say and what your "friend" has to say when everyone is talking on the same phone call...that will clear up a bitches story REAL QUICK. Any hesitation to make that phone call? You already know what time it is.
4. Store All Information in Your "Rolodex":
Now I'm not down to just drag people down Peachtree for just any old reason, but I do "store information" about people in my "Rolodex" which is what I call my memory bank. Now I know what type of person both parties are and you get categorized as such even if you are still permitted to be involved in my life.
Has this happened to you before? What did you do? Let me know!
