Enough, already! I can't stand it!
You shouldn't talk, it's not your place
You can feel that, just don't say it
Go and say it to their face!

I'm as guilty, I'll admit it
Sometimes I can't keep it in
But there's no excuse, no reason for it
I won't stand for it again

If you think that this is better
Talking bad behind their back
You're mistaken, sinful liar
You need to grasp the truth you lack

If you think it makes you cooler
To lie and smile to their face
It's neither right nor popular
And it will never be your place

If the reason that you hate them
Comes about every day
You need to fess up, need to tell 'em
Or it will never go away

Why do you even tell me this?
Why the constant agravation?
I don't want to know what it is
Don't want to fall to the temptation

If you think it gives you power
Makes you better cause you're right
Then you, my friend, are just a coward
Just cause you think it gives you the right

Enough, already, just be quiet
Go spread your hatred somewhere else
Just shut up, don't wanna hear it
You're just becoming them yourself

Just fess up, its not your place
Don't let those gossip lies come back
Go and say it to their face
And stop talking behind their back!


The author's comments:
This is dedicated to every person who has ever gossiped behind someone's back who was to cowardly to say it to their face. Seriously, we don't care, and it just causes bigger walls to be built between you and this person. If you hate them for something they do continuously and all you do is say how bad it is when they turn their back, they won't stop doing it. Tell them to their face!

Sorry if I offended you. To me "bicker" is friendly/playful/teasing or just a plain arguement with someone close.

In what way would you disagree with me, Asianflowers?  And I highly disagree with the word "bicker", it's simply "friendly debating".  "Bicker" is a word associated with little children [pouts at screen]

Oh my, Abe...I hope you don't kill yourself.

It's just that people complain about so many things about other people, particularly this one person, that are continuous, and I think you should tell her when they're happening so that she knows better than to do it again.  Sure, the truth hurts, but at least she knows how you feel, and when you're talking behind her back, it's nothing you wouldn't say to her face, so it isn't back stabbing.

Thanks Asianflowers! Haha, it'll be a rough one! But I will survive...hmmm.  [Sings Gloria Gaynor loudly while dancing]
Haha, sorry.  Had a moment there. ;-)

In my defense, I don't have anything I could say to her face that would make me like her once changed.  It's just that - I. Don't. Like. Her.  At all.  In any way, shape, or form.  Yes, I suppose it isn't exactly the kindest thing to say so behind her back, but it is still much nicer than going to her and saying she drives me insane just by being in the same room.  I know that's harsh, but I can't help it.

Fun side story, we have 6 out of 7 classes together next year...how fun. :-P

Well...still, it doesn't matter, you shouldn't talk behind her back.  I was just venting my wrath out in writing and I guess it shows.  [sheepish face] You make me feel guilty every time I read this, crawfordkid because I remember sending it to you and watching you read it from across the computer lab...

 

Are you lost, Asianflowers, I don't think we're talking about the same thing...

Well in my defense, it would be even more rude to just go up to her and say I can't stand her at all. :-P
