"I Was Just Joking" or "I Was Just Playing"
Have you experienced foolishness and nonsense at work? Have you ever been insulted, disrespected, shamed, called out, made fun of, issued a back handed compliment, or otherwise bullied and harrassed and then been hit with "I was just joking" or "I was just playing." Ain't nothing funny or playful about what you just experienced but the person bothering you tries to lessen the blow of their blows and detract the responsibility of their actions by throwing these lame lines. My loves, create boundaries. Stay in peace. Give them and their nonsense to God and keep it moving.
