Dealing with Gossip

Here are some tips that can help when dealing with gossip.

Ignore it

This may be easier said than done. If someone comes to you with gossip that you know can cause harm if spread just say you don’t want to be a part of it or you don’t want to get involved. Take yourself out of the equation to not cause any conflicts.

Ride it Out

One of the best aspects of Gossip is that there is always something new. If you happen to be the latest rumor your only the top story until another one comes along. Realize that right now things may suck but in a week or two someone will do something crazy and your story will be old news. With time things will pass.

Talk to your friends

There is nothing like a great group of friend to help you deal with gossip. They can help you laugh about the situation or find ways to deal with it. They will be right by your side so you dont have to deal with it alone. Your friends will stand by you because they know who you are that the gossip is just that gossip.

Tell someone of Authority

If things get out of hand and you feel you can no longer deal with the situation go to an adult. Find someone of authority you trust and know that can help you and let them know what is going on. They will most likely try to help you as much as they can.

Retaliate

Gossip and rumors are 99% of the time are almost always started by someone who doesn’t like you. They are trying to bully you. Stand up for yourself and retaliate so they know you are not someone to be messed with.

Taste Good Chinese in Spring Hill, Florida

2015-07-13_20-22-52

Well ol’ Taste Good Chinese has lost by business for good. Their online order system is down. When I tried to order it online it wouldn’t let me place the order.  So I called to give them the order over the phone and they would not honor it. Fuck them and all their food. The only reason we’d order from them was they are the only place that delivers… :( The have the worst food but hey… they did deliver.

Cracker Barrel offensive to people?

NlzJXnaStEiChHy-800x450-noPad

I say all of us European Americans start protesting C****er Barrel. It uses an offensive slur and it is deeply offensive and mocks our long and proud heritage.

The name is offensive, their logo stereotypes European Americans as people who sit on chairs and lean against what appears to be a bourbon barrel, claiming we are all a bunch of alcoholics. Sure, they’ll SAY it’s a “cracker” barrel but everyone knows crackers don’t come in barrels, they come in bags and boxes!

Change the name C****er Barrel to Caucasian Barrel. After all, white people should have something to be offended by, too!

My Number One Hobby

I think photography is my number 1 hobby. Photography lets you capture an image of something that will be around long after you have gone. It’s a moment in history that you have preserved. I sometimes think, will someone look at one of my photos and wonder what the subject was thinking or what the photographer was thinking when they took the photo?

I sometimes wonder what the subject was looking at. Are they looking at the photographer or a loved one off in the background? I wonder where they are at and who else was there when the photographer clicked the shutter. Even in the old paintings I catch myself wondering about this. I guess because I look at some of mine and remember the story of the photo happening. In one photo as soon as I clicked the button a fight broke out. When I look at that photo that is what I’m seeing… the moment before the fight. Others will look at the photo and thing, oh that’s a great family photo, “What a perfect family”.

Then I look at the odd photo that were staged. The ones where we are looking goofy or mad. The ones that we acted as if we were going to hit someone, or jump off something. Is people in our future going to look at those and be going WTF?

I think that is what draws me to photography. It’s the documenting of my family for generations to come. My great-great-great grand-kids will have thousands of photos to look at and try to know us. Unfortunately I’m not in most of the photos, I’m always on the other side of the camera.

In some of my family photos when I was growing up I’ll see a picture at 5 then another at 9. What happened in the 4 years in between? Or I think of an old car or motorcycle I owned but there is not 1 single photo of it ever happening.

Maybe I’m unique or odd but if I had to choose 1 hobby over all it would be photography.

South Carolina Caves In…

675COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina Senate voted Monday to remove the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the State House. The bipartisan proposal, which emerged after last month’s massacre at a historic black church in Charleston, was approved by a 37-to-3 vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.

There is another state I promise never to visit again and give $1 of my money to. I need to see what companies operate out of South Carolina and boycott them as well. It’s just the principle of the issue.

Whores for their pimp

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a congress.

– John Adams

I use to think that our elected officials were working on our behalf… I guess I was naive and stupid. The more I see in government the more I feel like a rape victim. At least they could use a little lube while there doing it.

Is this something new or have politicians always been like this? Have they always fucked over the people they represent for big business… I guess a whore does what her pimp tells her, no different.

What one person receives without working for…another person must work for without receiving

Fight Censorship

500lAlways fight against any type of censorship! Once the government starts any type of Censorship it always leads into something else and more. We are adult and can control ourselves without the government telling what I can look at, read, listen to, or think about!  It is their way of controlling the American population
