    Getting in good with your friends should not involve saying nasty things about anyone else.

    "Getting in good" - not sure the derivation but mainly it means trying to get your friends to like you or think well of you. It was a vague reference to the Prince William "joke" that went down like a lead balloon in here (balloon made out of something very heavy - compare with Lead Zepphlin - heavy metal - well it used to be).

    So it's a common theme in high school (and some work places and sports/social clubs) - to get yourself up a social ladder (liked by more people) by stomping on certain people or "running them down" or saying nasty things about them. Not a good idea, long term.

    Nah actually that wasn't really a joke. Actually I said that (in real life) to annoy my mates who were really getting on my nerves and badgering me.

    But that article was very interesting. Thanks!

    Aww that's so cute.

    I really am trying Hyacinth. I'm not intentionally upsetting people. I am, however doing my best to learn.
