We attended a wedding and a reception last evening. It was an interesting mix of people. We knew most of the younger crowd there because we had met them and seen them at the house and celebrated holidays with many of them.
There were many over the age of 70 that were neighbors or relatives that we had not met. The various conversations were so interesting. One gentleman brought a card over to the people sitting at a table near us. The person brought on card over to us to read. It had the same wording as the one you see above.
“What do you think this means?”
“Well, its sounds to me like someone might be trying to stop negative gossip or conversations. I don’t know the gentleman who gave it to you. I don’t know you. I find it odd, and I would just say it is generally good advice and go on with the great evening.”
He replied “I am offended.”
“I am sorry to hear that and I understand how you find it offensive. I hope you can just let it go and celebrate with the happy couple.”
“So you want me to ignore bad behavior?”
“Sir, I hope you have a good night and do whatever feels right for you. I chose not to be involved. It has nothing to do with me.”
What would you have done?
