I don’t know, to me, it’s just not cool. Ok, I know. I’m guilty of doing it as well, but I’m working on it. Once you talk behind someone’s back, other’s join in, and it’s like this vicious attack on that one person. Everything bad about that person is said and everyone goes around to have their turn. Just imagine if they overheard you. What if they heard you, and cried? Tried to inflict pain on themselves?
It’s not fun for them okay, so stop.
If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.
