11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do? This is a tough one, because I am known for going along with others if they are talking bad about someone. I am so bad for gossip and talking about others behind their backs.
