~ All of the communication skills ~
If you’re over the age of thirteen and still using “The Silent Treatment” as a method for conveying your thoughts and opinions…
The ONLY thing that you’re communicating is that you’re immature, cowardly and rude.
And. You’re a big fat meany-pants poopy butt head with a head for a butt! :p

The only thing that could spoil a day was people. People were always the limiters of happiness, except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.
~ Ernest Hemingway
People always have an expected gain when they volunteer information.
Frankly, I am inclined to be suspicious about the motives and integrity of someone who tells me something negative about another person without facts or evidence. Certainly, It begs the question: why is the teller so threatened by the person they are maligning?
As writers, we know the importance of research, checking details and sources and if it matters to me at all, I’ll be check the facts rather than to act – in any way – that gives credence to what is only gossip unless and until all sides are out in the open and not whispered “behind the walls”.

It’s beyond me how some people, even supposedly educated people, can be so utterly inept at or worse, think they are above the social courtesies.
There is no need for your ego or arrogance to circle the wagons of silence.
It’s a “hello, how are you?”, not a bloody marriage proposal.
