How to Talk Behind Someone's Back

Once, a long, long time ago, I got into a fight with one of my older brother’s friends. I won’t get into the reasons. I was 14, he was 17, none of us handled the situation particularly well. My brother ended up taking his friend’s side and there was quite a bit of yelling.

Later that evening, when things had cooled down a bit, my brother (who I remind you, was 17 at the time, an age at which most of us say a lot of stupid things) told me, “I don’t like your friends either, but at least I have the guts to insult them when they’re not around.”

The guy I’d been arguing with and I looked at each other, then started laughing so hard that any ill will left from our argument completely dissipated.
