Yea I got beefs just not beefs like that but I think I can relate to that though.
My thing about beef is getting caught up in someone else's beef. A lot of us take on other people's issues because they are friends or family. The person they are beefing with hasn't even done us anything at all yet we take sides and end up ruining friendships or sometimes even getting into altercations over something that shouldn't affect us personally.
For me that's a no-no. I try to keep my own personal beefs as my own but then I've always been accustomed to rolling solo plus no-one ever takes on my beefs anyways.
But in regards to the beefs of others, unless you're like close close family or its a ridiculous story where clearly I can tell you've been obviously cheated I aint even trying to get involved. Even with close family if I think the beef is silly I'm not even trying to be part of it.
I can be friends with two parties who don't speak to each other, and got issues with each other and that applies in both personal and work relationships cause sometimes there be these little cubicle wars going on and people expect you to take sides. Why? Its work man, I come here to do my shift not get caught up in a professional Tupac vs Biggie struggle. Forget that! I aint trying to be caught up in stuff that really doesn't concern me. Work is usually already stressful enough without personal feuds. Save that drama for your mama! In both personal and work situations if you want to feud like the Montagues and Capolets go right ahead but I'm staying Switzerland neutral. If you want to catch feelings on that and then have beef with me because of my stance that's fine too cause then we have issues.
Like I always figure they are very few people I would even consider getting into crap for. Actually this leads into another thought (Which was supposed to be another blog).
Two weeks ago got into an argument about a public incident that I read about. The incident involved two random parties in close proximity first getting into an argument and then fighting in public with one getting the absolute better of the other. In other words someone's ass got kicked and no one stepped in to help.
The argument was about why people who saw the altercation didn't get involved. No one stepped to the assistance of the weaker party.
My thoughts were to be honest I myself would probably not have stepped in. Yea I know that's sad and doesn't show a lot of community spirit on my part but my thoughts are I aint getting killed for someone I don't know. Forget valor and discretion this is a pure common sense thing.
There are some situations that regardless necessitate someone stepping in or calling the police; small children in trouble comes to mind but there are other incidents like say domestic disputes where you're not fully aware of what's going on or you realize that the situation isn't as cut and dry as it may seem where you cant just step up and play hero. Plus People nowadays igrant, guns a plenty all over the place and ya cant call back bullets once they fire. So yea sorry I never had a cape, never could leap small buildings, never was bulletproof and I aint the one to play hero. Call me the coward of the county if you want but as Kenny Rogers said (yea so I listen to county music what's your problem, you want beef?) "You got to know when to hold um, know when to fold um, know when to walk away know when to run."
