It’s polite to lie

I ran into someone who knows someone I know. This mutual “friend” of ours is a person whom I do not like. And so it begins. Person 1 goes on and on about what a good person MF (mutual friend , I’m aware of the MF irony) is and how MF is just so kind…yada yada yada. I’m smiling, nodding in agreement the whole time. Then Person 1 says “MF is the most beautiful,  I mean the most breathtakingly beautiful person I’ve ever seen. Wouldn’t you agree?”

I hate being put on the spot with shit like that. I’m a pretty honest person. I don’t like to bullshit, beat around the bush or stand idly by while someone speaks favorbly about a rotten person…but sometimes it has to be done. So, through clenched teeth, I nodded yes and smiled.

Then I came home and bitched to The Hubs about it. And now I’m posting on my blog about it because that’s the kind of passive aggressive action that was necessary for that conversation. For the record, MF could look like Selma Hayek and I’d still find her ugly because inside, she’s an asswad but I digress.
