Ever been thrown under the bus? For those of you who are not familiar with the term it means that someone has trashed you in some fashion. Generally, what happens is someone you know a friend or co worker runs to your boss or another friend and puts you in a bad light. Many times this is done to take the heat off of the trasher and putting the heat on you the trashed. I have no idea the motivations of those folks who like to throw people under the bus. I know they fail to think it through because it some instances being thrown under the bus means loss of a job, a friend, a relative or all the above.
I thought this kind of thing went out with the move from middle school to high school. However, I was incorrect it would seem that the tossing of folks under the bus is alive and well in all aspects of adult society. Maybe, this kind of behavior never really leaves some people who enjoy seeing another human being raked over the coals or worse lose their job. Make no mistake these folks take no guilt in the misfortune of others and the havoc they cause simply because they justify their actions with" you deserved it"!
Consequently, the next time you find yourself being chewed out by your boss or your significant other and you asked where did you get this information? And you find out someone you know has informed on you…….welcome to greasy side of the bus!
