"I bet in high school, everybody made somebody's life hell. "

Do you ever get the feeling you talk about people WAY more than they talk about you?

We talk a lot of trash.  We also talk a lot of...untrash?  Nice things?  Whatever.  Either way, good or bad, we wonder if people we talk about ever talk about us.

We think we're interesting enough, and hopefully present enough in the community.  But is it possible we are more aware of our surroundings, or just bigger bitches, where we comment on other people's lives while they give no second opinion to ours.

For example, if you see pictures on facebook of someone you went to high school with, you may think, "Wow, he/she looks really good" or "I am so not jealous that she has two kids and lives in Cleveland."  Hopefully, accompanying these thoughts are reciprocated, either similarly or contrarily, thoughts from the party whom you've discussed.  Because surely they give enough of a shit about us to at least say our new shirt looked nice in those pics at the bar from last weekend or that the weight we recently shed and the bangs we grew are hot.

Are we right?

We'd love to know your thoughts, but in the meantime do us this favor:  Please continue to analyze, observe, question, compliment, and bash those around you.  Even if you don't know them that well or talk to them that often.  We're willing to bet they have discussed you ad naus and would take comfort in knowing you are a gossiping little shit just like they are.

Talking about someone else way more than they talk about you is also sometimes called "The 'Pooch Effect."

It occurs when someone (usually hotter than you) couldn't possibly care less that you just put up new facebook pics, got a new job, looked really good yesterday, or is totally flirting with that person over there. Even though you spend much of your life dissecting their life, they do not give a second thought to you or your existence.

Often times the 'Pooch Effect can even manifest itself in situations where the other person has maybe only spoken to you once or twice, and maybe lives in a different state, and maybe spent the whole summer in the place where you live but didn't try to contact you once. Maybe.

You don't like our bangs?
