I was hanging out with some friends the other day. It was a fun time up until they started bickering about some minor bullshit that occurred between the two of them a few weeks earlier. They started hurling accusations and insults at each other and the tension was rising. I had to intervene to calm them down. I gave them a reminder that they were in public and told them to kindly shut the fuck up. I hate getting stuck in the middle of an argument, especially stupid ones. Luckily I didn’t have to choose sides this time. People are going to argue and butt heads from time to time. Sometime innocent people get stuck in the crossfire. You can either turn a blind eye or you can try to be the voice of reason. Either choice has potential repercussions. Choose wisely. It’s a terrible feeling when people you care about don’t get along and showcase it in front of you. Especially when it’s your parents and you’re the topic of discussion.
