So recently I was hit with two moral questiony type situational situations:
I was walking the dog and I decided to call a friend to say hi. The friend was driving in his car with someone. We talked it up for a little bit but then he said he had to go because he was in the car with someone. I was wearing my headset and I sort of waited for him to click off (waited for the beep beep hangup) as I walked along. But he didn’t hang up by accident or whatever.
I could hear him talking load and clear. After like ten seconds this friend said something sorta semi-rude about me. Sorta jokey rude (nothing serious) but still rude. I was kinda like ‘Hey!!!’ Now I’m sorta pissed because he talked behind my back– but I was listening behind his back and feel I lost my rights to be pissed because I was a sneaky eavesdropper. Did I lose my pissed off rights?
I was at a party thing recently and there were pitchers of water on a table along with food and cookies and stuff. I munched on a cookie. And I’m not sure what happened but a chewed piece of cookay fell out of my mouth into the pitcher of ice water. I looked at it floating in there like oops ew — and then some dude came along and poured himself a pitcher of water.
I thought about saying– ‘Ummm hey some food just fell out of my mouth into that– you might not wanna drink it!’… But I was embarrassed to say anything because it would make me feel like a gross slob who can’t control his chewing. When he put the pitcher back down the cookay either dissolved– or was in his glass as a bonus. Was it wrong for me to stay silent about my gross food fumble?
