MYOB

June 16, 2017

My nana used to tell us kids this all the time. We were curious. We wanted to know what the grown ups were up to.

“Hey! MYOB!” She’d say emphatically and with a smile. Almost always, as I recall, it was followed up with a question. “Do you know what that means?”

And, as I recall, she didn’t usually wait for nor did she care about our answer.

MYOB! Mind your own business!

(Business could be used interchangeably with beeswax, as in “mind your own beeswax!)

That, very non-Stoic thing is what today’s The Daily Stoic brought to my mind. So thank you, daily stoic, for raising a sweet memory of my silly nana.

Here’s the more serious version. I might stick with MYOB.
