It is always assumed by the empty-headed, who chatter about themselves for want of something better, that people who do not discuss their affairs openly must have something to hide.
Honoré de Balzac, Père Goriot
Do I have something to hide? Even if it is yes, what business is it of yours? Everyone has their own personal life that should be kept away from the walls of the work place.
My conscious is clear and the people who matter to me know that. That is enough.
So, excuse me while I sip on my hot choco and watch you chatter about yourself and others.
