Well not anything. You know if they were a rapist or something else I'd have an issue with it, or I'd treat them differently if say they'd ripped someone I knew off, but I try to judge people on how they are with me not with how they are with others. I'm friends with plenty of people who many would say are complete c*nts but they've been nothing but lovely to me so why would I treat them badly? I take people on face value so someone could be a nasty asshole to everyone in the world but if they're polite and nice to me then that's how I find them on a personal level, there's too many people imo who will treat someone badly on hearsay without knowing the full stories or getting to know someone.
I agree rumour listening is a road to Hell. Personal experience is the only way. When does ripping someone else off become 'personal' to an individual if all parties involved are close for example. Acquaintance, friend, close friend, partner, immediate family etc. Its mainly shades of grey but some areas have to be black, some white. Automatic fence sitting as well as 'staying out of it' is also saying whatever happened was acceptable.
Guess I just wanted to vent (on behalf of Z).
Next question, how longs this hot weather expected to last?
