Probably my top least favourite expression.
Mind my own business??? Well… I was trying to do just that until you started acting the fool next to me… and guess what, once you start that, you’re suddenly making it my business.
Now, if the person who exclaimed this heinous maxim is known to me, I might accept it, maybe I was overstepping my boundaries and maybe I should not get involved and therefore mind my own business… But iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiffffffffff it comes from a complete stranger, oh guuuurl, look out, I will remind him/her very swiftly and abruptly that all actions have a reaction, and yours are that special that I can always move on without having a say…
- Awkward Person: (Saying / Doing anything stupid for attention)
- Me: “Lookout!”
- Awkward Person: “MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!”
- Me: “Really human buffoon? Why don’t you calm your tits buddy and get the fuck out of my way you ugly cuntface”
Now… if he/she pulls out a knife or a gun or any kind of weapon that migth hurt, at that point, I’ll run. I’ll probably run very fast… haha… but what I won’t do is let them get away with telling me to mind my own business without having my say.
At the end of the day, no one really watches or listens to everyone around them, BUT everyone sees and hears. We can all get triggered when someone does or says something around us, we have no choice but give attention to that person when they bring attention to themselves. We can choose to ignore it, but for that instant, right there and then, it became our business too. That person made that happen, regardless if they wanted to or not.
“Mind my own business!” Pffft… listen to that bitch telling me to mind my own business…
