You Have To Be Careful What You Say About Anyone

Volleyball last night. Matt, one of my teammates, introduced me to Greg, a friend of his who was to play for us. Matt and Greg have played beach volleyball together. I recognised his straight away, although the dyed hair made it a little more difficult to do so, and he said, "Don't I know you from Curtin (Uni)? You did IS (Information Systems), didn't you?"
Yep, I had seen Greg around and even spoken to him a couple of times on campus.

We discussed uni a bit and Greg mentioned that although he doesn't see a lot of people from uni most of the people who did IT (Information Technology) are not working in that field. I know about four fellow students who are working in IT and asked him, "Do you know Ben So-and-so?"
"Know him? I live with him," was the reply.

You can't have a bad word about anyone.

We got rolled in the first set of our match but the second set was much better and we lost narrowly. In the third set we played very well for a 17-11 lead and somehow blew it to lose 25-21 right on the stroke of time. Bugger - a 3-0 loss. And next week we have a bye. They've introduced another team into our division. It's difficult enough for me to find the time to play once a week and keep up a bit of momentum and now we've been hit with the ocassional bye. Better luck next time.

And to think that I was just about to bad mouth Greg right here in your comments. Good think I held back.

Greg played a reasonable game too.

It pays to stop and think how you would feel. If you can't say anything nice, say nothing.
