    What would you do if you were out in public with a friend or someone close to you,and they purposely talked about your personal business in front of strangers to embarrass you even though it's not funny.

    HA! It has happened to me quite often recently.

    My initial response is to isolate and decipher why I am upset. Sure I could turn defensive and angry, but that doesn't really address the issue does it.
    -Explain to the person that I don't appreciate being called upon etc...
    -If it continues to happen just limit my interaction with that person.

    Quite textbook.

    I'd try not to make a scene, but I would pull the person aside if I get a chance and tell them to quit it.

    Well the right response would be to tell them that what they are doing is not okay, and they should stop or risk the relationship of being friends if they continually do something like this. Because a friend shouldn't or want to do something like that.

    But since you are asking for "what would I do" then I would simply pull that young money psychology out and work him over. Because you just put my business out there, you are purposely trying to, and you are hurting my feelings. So in turn, you will be ripped apart by the next couple of sentences and phrases that I have to say. Now that's not the mature thing to do, but its what I would do. Maybe they'll learn not to say things that shouldn't be said.

    I'm a little crazy...I'm sorry. I have a loud bark and an even stronger bite. If you know what I mean....I don't even know what I mean.

    But then also you have to ask them why they are doing this. Get down to the root of the problem before going off and snapping. I like calm conversations, rarely do I get buck.

    So talk to them and find out what the heck is going on.

    Good luck, 頑張るね!

    Generally: make a certain mental note to distance myself from that person on a friendship level; demote to casual and infrequently/never-again seen/contacted/talked to mere acquaintance.

    A very close 'friend': If the personal business in question was something so personal/close to the knuckle that speaking about it to others is a clear and undeniable betrayal of the friendship and attempt to diminish me, i'd be pissed like you wouldn't believe because it breaks the trust and loyalty established between us and is a spit in the face to boot. In this kind of scenario I wouldn't hesitate to immediately pull them up on it and cuss them the fuck out, at the very least. I'd switch.

    My inner circle of true friends is small but strongly bonded, respectful, genuine and unconditionally loyal. It's mutual or it is not at all. Those who feign this but ultimately prove to be otherwise are removed. Those who take it a step further by trying to belittle me to others with personal info, an ultimate BETRAYAL, will feel the FULL brunt of my otherwise dormant rage, swiftly and without restraint or remorse, as soon as it comes to light. End of.

    Leave him or her standing there and never talk to him or her again; I'm running pretty low on family actually. Oh well, scrambled eggs!

    If they were talking about my personal business that was embarrassing, I'd probably pitch a bitch right there. However, if they were talking about your embarrassing personal business, I'd say, "Oh really? Why don't you pull up a chair and tell me more."

    My friends and I like to tease each other, for laughs. And, we're all very good at giving it and taking it. But, none of us would purposely embarrass one of our friends. There's a big difference.
