Two faced people … I know you know them.
Slow down; stop counting!
They are hypocrites who live up to the true meaning of the word.
Some folks call them by other unflattering synonyms – gossipers, revengeful, backstabbers (who smile in your face), deceitful, cowards, idea stealers, and names that I cannot gracefully print.
They say and do one thing in your presence and are completely opposite behind your back.
Of course, they are not to be trusted … even when you are looking at them!
They can be so despicable!
Don’t fall for or be deceived by their duplicity.
You may be in situations where you have to routinely or occasionally deal with those two faced specimens.
Here are some pointers when you do have to engage with them:
1. Acknowledge that you are dealing with someone false and dishonest.
2. Be assertive rather than aggressive when confronting them.
3. Be civil toward the person even when they said bad things about you.
4. Avoid the duplicitous person that has been talking negatively about you.
5. Avoid divulging personal or sensitive information.
6. Avoid being physically aggressive at any cost.
7. Resist the temptation to play their gossip game.
8. Avoid sharing your ideas, goals, and aspirations with them.
9. Do not take their negative actions/words to heart.
Clearly, it takes a lot to deal with them and it takes a lot out of you.
It’s not easy to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Ringing in my ear is the sage counsel of the late Dr. Maya Angelou, “The first time people show you who they are, believe them!” We can however, use the street vernacular, “If a dog take a bone, he’ll carry one.”
It doesn’t matter which version we elect to take, the advice is the same – Beware and keep your antennas up with two faced people.
No matter how smart you are, it’s hard to tell which side of the face is which.
They look the same.

bio_alexJeopardy’s host, Alex Trebek is in the house! Ready! Let’s play Jeopardy! Occupation is the category. Remember your responses must be in the form of a question.
Occupation for $ 200 – Alex.
He does no work, gets compensated handsomely, and nastily tells people what he thinks of them.
Answer: Who is Mr. Do Nothing?
Occupation for $400.
He comes in late every day; intimidates the staff when he arrives; is frequently missing in action; is exempted from punishment; takes funds out of the cookie jar; starts arguments frequently; and pretends to be busy with no evidence of productive activity.
Answer: Who is Mr. Do Nothing?
Occupation for $600.
He is a pathological liar; has emotionally stabbed people (in the back, of course); has vehemently insulted his coworkers on innumerable occasions; has routinely borrowed money from subordinates and after receipt of the funds threatened their job security.
Answer: Who is Mr. Do Nothing?
Occupation for $800.
He is a troublemaker, name caller, a stoolpigeon; an employee that everyone dislikes but must tolerate because of his closeness to the man in charge (a boss that he negatively talks about behind his back).
Answer: Who is Mr. Do Nothing?
Occupation for $1,000 Alex to finish the category.
He regularly laughs in your face and belittles you; is embarrassingly untrustworthy; takes food that isn’t his out of the refrigerator; has repetitively lied, cheated, and stolen; has harassed every single employee; is exceptionally ruthless but asks all to pray for his sins!
Suddenly, a puzzled Alex Trebek stops the game and says, “Contestants, I am sorry! Something is wrong with our monitor. No one person can have all of those lowly characteristics. That individual would be a devil in disguise.”
Bingo Alex! You are right! We just call him by his earthly name, Mr. Do Nothing!

PostHeaderIcon “I’m done!”

“Everybody (but her) could see right through him” and he knew it! Sometimes you can see what others can’t and vice versa. Such was the case with one of my girlfriends. Love can cause blindness. Nothing beats the annoyance of people who say one thing and do another. We call them hypocrites! My friend was heads over heels, giddily in love with this guy. Supposedly, he loved her but his words and actions didn’t match. After I witnessed his last deceitful act, “I was done; well done at that. You could just stick a fork in me!” It was excruciating for me to see her suffer. Because of my love for her, I felt her pain as well. I only hope that she has enough courage to “be done” with his insanity! Time will tell!
