I Wonder What ... He Is?
I Wonder What... He Is?
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
I've been listening for months now, to a person I met. He's the nicest person you want to meet. One feels upon meeting him that they would love to have him for a friend.
Mistake... you don't want this guy for a friend. His best friend is a lie... he will lie about any, everything. I have been constantly amazed at his lies... because I'm fortunate to know firsthand... he truly is lying.
I know you all know one person in your life like this... I've met more than one person in my life like this. They will lie when there's no reason to lie. They will lie on another person to make themselves look good.
I've watched, listened to this guy whom I will call Benson... he is good. He is one of the .... best. He has such a sweet face... who would believe he'd do such things?
I know several people whom he lies on... I witness it... I know better. He does it front of ... my friends thinking they don't know. Everyone will look at each other.
We still treat this guy very nice whenever he comes around, we always say something positive to him that's true..... we never try to 'bring him down'... we listen, go our ways. We cringe as we walk away... for fear of 'feeling a knife in 'our' back'.....
I know he is sick, mentally. The unfortunate thing here is that he comes across as a wonderful person to strangers... and 'why in the world' would 'he tell them' ... a lie?
What's so strange is.... even knowing he is nothing but, a big liar.... he is still a very likeable person! I told you it was strange....
The latest lie is that he saved someone's life when they stopped breathing twice... the people there at the time say it's not true at all. The person he supposedly saved went to the hospital to be released soon after. He didn't stop breathing... not at all.
The parents 'believe' Benson's lie that he saved their child... they don't know any better than to believe.... now, they worship Benson. They say now, 'If it hadn't been for Benson........' You can guess the rest.
I'm always studying, watching, listening quietly to people around me. This has been one of the most interesting people lately... I 'know' Benson's mind is 'sick'.... alot of people who've known him longer than I ..know it better than I do. Some of them have been his target in the past.
I'm a people-watcher... I love to see 'different' people, they stand out to me. I know there's got to be a reason 'Benson' stands out to me... I wonder what it is I need to learn from him.
I know 'teachers appear' in life... they aren't always what one would expect... to teach us lessons in life. For months, I've been 'listening' to see what it is... if anything... I need to learn from someone who constantly lies to look good. I don't do that... I'll look bad before I make someone else look bad.
Maybe he isn't a 'teacher' in life's lessons at all... I'm still trying to figure it out. I wonder... what he is?
