Let me tell you a story:
There once lived a bear and a rabbit. Rabbit and Bear weren’t the best of friends but they were friendly. One day Bear received a big package in the mail. Seeing something new, Rabbit ran over to see what was in the box. He looked in and all he saw was packing peanuts. Bear was thrilled. He enjoyed small things in life and he wanted to play with the peanuts. Rabbit thought Bear was crazy.
Rabbit just had go tell everyone about the package Bear received. -Bear is lame, who could be happy with a box of packing peanuts?- He told this to all his ‘friends’. He told Squirrel, Bird, Trout, Wasp, Aunt Ant and anyone else who would listen. Eventually, word got back to Bear.
Bear knew how Rabbit liked to gossip and stir the pot. He called Rabbit over to hang out one afternoon. Rabbit knocked on the door. As soon as he opened to door, Bear ate Rabbit in one swallow.
Moral of the story; don’t talk shit about people behind their back. They always find out and they may eat your rabbit.
