Just the facts......



One thing that annoys you is when people don’t mind their own business, when people think they are in the know and important enough to have all the facts, when they clearly have no idea.

You were once dealing with two youths who had been causing problems for staff in a Fast Food Restaurant, while you were dealing with them a man walked up to you and encouraged by the fact he was in the presence of a Police Officer, boldly stated to the Youths:

‘Yeah you heard the officer; go home to your mummy!’

After being informed that his opinion was only inflaming the situation, the man left the scene.

This man had no idea what was happening at the time and he wasn’t there at the scene when the incident happened. He obviously thought he was important and was going to make his power, or lack there of, well known to all.

If a person cannot help a situation, if they can’t ascertain what is actually happening or happened, then they should just mind their own business and accept the fact that if they needed to know that they would be informed, its common sense really.

Good Sunday morning, Joe !

As well as keeping one's nose out of any incident going down with the police, minding one's own business could benefit everyone in every situation !

Just think... Assuming you are are not violating the law -- No interfering neighbors, no busybodies in your life from school or church who have nothing to do but create gossip out of their own boredom, no bar-room brawls, no ruckus at sports events, no nations going where they don't belong, basically NO FIGHTS because people took care of themselves responsibly instead of telling everyone else how to live !

What a great concept !
How I do love to dream...

Be Safe Out There.

Sincerely,

Usually this sort of thing is met with a "who the f&*% are you? Do I know you? No, piss off"

That was from a sergeant too!

Uninformed interference can be deeply troublemaking, especially when it's based on malice- and it so often is. Thanks for this helpful blogpost and for your lovely comment the other day. I am blogging some quite serious police corruption and I didn't want to force it on anyone.
