The thing about the new generation.
You know, one of my biggest peeves with the newer generations and how they deal with their “drama” is their insistence on passive aggressive behavior. I read so many facebook status updates where someone makes some type of a remark regarding what someone else may, or may not, have said about them at some point in time. These posts never call out the person said poster has an issue with. It’s all vague acknowledgements. It’s like these posts think we know who the hell they are talking about. When we don’t. We see a post that alledges some secret society member said or did this one specific item. The worst comes when these updates are calling out whomever supposedly did the poster wrong. These posts tend to gravitate to the poster feeling some type of wrong has been done by the instigator and that the instigator is in the wrong for speaking behind the back of said poster. How the hell is that any different from the poster posting that an anonymous person said bad things about them? And the way they are going to resolve it is by posting about how said anonymous person did them wrong? I’m sorry..But when I grew up things went down like this. Someone said something about you behind your back. You use your network of friends and connections to find out who said person was (if you didn’t already know). You then confront said person in a public location (thus insuring that everything said would make it into a ledger somewhere). If things progressed past that then fists, feet, and other body parts were involved. I find the idea of trying to shame an anonymous person via passive aggressive status updates as bad, if not worse, than actually going head to head. If someone is bad mouthing you. Have the balls to name them. Because otherwise you are stooping down to their own level of talking behind backs.
