Mind Your Biscuits Now!

Mind Your Biscuits Now!

 

Growing up in the south taught many life lessons, some as simple as as three words. When venturing into territory that was none ya business or off limits, a simple, "Mind your biscuits" was a message to re-direct or they'd learn ya, durn ya.

 

Being inquisitive is a human trait that feeds a desire to learn or to know. It is necessary to get answers in our personal lives and professional dealings but some people take it much too far. Prying can be misconstrued as meddling or intrusively annoying.

 

A perfect example is a nosey resident. One who feels compelled to keep everyone in the area informed of the comings and goings of people traveling in and out of the neighborhood, reporting through speculation rather than relaying truth.

 

Another instance is when individuals are overly eager to give or receive juicy information, despite an erroneous nature. They want to be In The Know at all times! Some even have the Fear of Missing Out, also known and FOMO, for short.

 

Though some people will volunteer information about others, my focus is on work, being informed about what matters, especially family. If I get a little too close to getting gossipy, the words resonate inside my head, "Mind your biscuits"

 

And I do!

You said biscuits...now I can't work :) But yes I agree, people need to focus on their own lives and stop butting into other people's business. If they are asked to help then by all means...

Hi Wanda - we all know those people.  Where I came we didn't say it as politely as "mind your biscuits."

Dear Wanda,

Good advice, but I have come around to liking a low grade amount of gossip, so long as it is delivered in the spirit of caring. Occasionally, a neighbor gets helped, when they have not been seen and the local busy body notices and goes to check.

Being helpful is another matter altogether, unless an ulterior motive is being the charity. Hope you were able to find some biscuits today to stave off the hunger Erik Hiss!

Informing people that someone may need help is a bit different than out and out gossiping Dorte Engel. Having good neighbors is important for that very reason you mentioned!

Hello Miss Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! - FAR too many people feel too many things is their business these days ... I like the expression ... mind your biscuits. 

I often use NUNYA ... means the same thing.  Alternatively, that is not a topic open for discussion.

If people fail to mind their own biscuits Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist, they might burn! I like mine a deep, golden color.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! - a very dear friend of mine taught me: 

(1) always keep my side of the windows clean; and 

(2) be sure to always take the trash out

Northern people like biscuits at a higher elevation Beth Paterson! I am originally from Owatonna, Minnesota, that's how I know. 😉

I've known people who were destructive in their nosiness - and often carried tales that were NOT true. But they conveyed that gossip in such a caring way. Ugh!

There's a line from a country song: "If you mind your business then you won't have time for mine."

Eventually it catches up with them Marte Cliff because most people move on from the needless drama they create. Mind your own business, love Hank Sr. and Jr.!

From my personal experience I can tell you that Mrs Christiana morrison is one of the best binary options/forex managers I have met in a while. I had lost over $3000 on the advice of managers who have little to no experience. Today I remain grateful to Mrs Christiana Morrison for coming through for me during my early days of trials and errors.
If you’re new to binary and forex options and you’re already giving up, take my advice. Don’t loose your hard earned money unnecessarily. Reach out to a professional team today. Do remember to mention me as your referral so I can earn my bonus. One good turn deserves another, right? You can contact Mrs Christiana morrison via
