I’ve been told that it wasn’t my business when someone freaked out that their laundry didn’t dry in four minutes. No, it’s technically “not” my business, but you are making someone cry, she hasn’t the strength to tell you that you are a ridiculous moron, but I’m good to go!
It may not be my business that your three-year old is terrorizing your one year old, but I’m going to say or do something, beware. I’ve always been told “it takes a village to raise a child”, that just means, yes, I’m going to yank the piece of wood out of your kid’s hand. He’s beating his little brother half to death while you are ordering a coffee.
It may not be my business that you allowed a seventeen year old to die in your home.
It may not be my business that you just ran over a cat and didn’t care.
It may not be my business that you left your child, dog, mother or sandwich in a hot car.
It may not be my business but that doesn’t mean I am going to keep quiet. Keeping my nose out of other people’s business, that is completely foreign to me. It means I’m entirely unaware what is happening around me and don’t care. How can I not care? These are elderly, animals, the environment, the government, the homeless and the lions!!!! What about the lions??
Who needs someone like YOU to get in their business? Look around, someone is there, they need you.
