opinions are like a**holes

I see so many bodacious opinions her on CM.

I wonder how many of you only voice those here in this forum, OR voice them whenever you feel like it.

For those of you who just can't keep your mouth shut, has it ever gotten you into trouble?

When you think you are right, do you make it a point to say so?

Do you live and let live in the outside world, but condemn people here in the privacy of your own home?

Just curious.......

Let's see how many people are brave enough to be real.

 I will speak my mind especially when it is a subject i know well.  On here or in person.  Has my mouth gotten me in trouble sure it has, but i am generally quite and will keep it shut unless it is a subject i am passionate about.  I do know when to keep it shut or when to shut it.  I don't condemn people on here nor do i do it person.

I understand what you mean. I try my best to overlook things that are super ignorant and not comment. Wait, was that condemnation?

possibly, lol

I definitely know when to keep my mouth shut.

I am the same in real life as I am on here.  My friends love/hate that about me but they know if they ask a question they will get my honest opinion.  Sometimes I have learned to slightly tailor this but for the most part I call it how I see it....

yes this has gotten me in trouble......my one friend didn't talk to me for 2 weeks because I joked about buying holy water at the christian store......

If I read a post asking for opinions, I give one if I feel like it.  If it's clearly labeled a "vent" I leave the judgement out and offer support if anything.  It's the same IRL for me.  If someone ASKS for my opinion I'm happy to give it, otherwise I keep it to myself.  I'm the type of person who doesn't do well with opinions shoved down my thoat, so I'd never do that to someone else.

I don't just randomly bring up subjects with people to argue but if we are on the subject, yes I will voice my opinion.

I am the same way. All of my friends know me and know me well. I have a zero tolerance for bullshit policy. If my friends don't want the truth, they don't ask for advice. If my friends vent/rant, I never offer my opinion. Everyone deserves the right to clear the air.

Sometimes though at work I get myself into trouble. 'woops' lol which is hilarious to think about because I am a teacher.
