What will you do if you hear someone who makes a disparaging comments about your best friends personality and life in general? Will you get angry and talk to the person? or will you tell it about to your best friend?

i will talk to the person badmouthing my bestfriend and i will make clarifications as possible. i will also inform my bestfriend about it, but i will say it in a way that it will not further aggravate the situation or to the point of making a scene or catfight.

Yeah, that's good, better let the person knows what he/she's talking about, and for whatever reasons, he/she doesn't have the right to belittle anybody. Well perhaps there might be some misunderstanding between them,that it could be better to make them in peace. That's a good idea. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Hey careguarden! It would have to depend on who was saying what about whom! If I felt that someone was making deragatory remarks about a close friend of mine and spreading gossip that I felf was unkind and unnecessary then I would say something on their behalf. And if it was something that was really bad then I might get angry at the person and I would definitely tell them off!

yeah, I might do the same thing as you mentioned, it's really unkind for someone to do certain acts of degrading to a person, they don't have the right to do that. Since we're all different from each other. It's really best to talk those kind of people and teach them what is right from wrong, just to remind them that what they're doing is not good. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day my friend.

I would tell the person who was making that commit that I don't know that person that way. I would tell that person making the commit that they must not know them that well if they are making a commit like that. Would I tell my best friend about that commit that was made - NO - why would I want to hurt my best friend by telling them gossip from someone that clearly doesn't know them

No I will not get angry to that person, during which he said was true and not offensive although he was my best friend. Except when he slandered and insulted my friend even though he is not my best friend, then I would be angry.
