Rule #16: Keep your friends close but your enemies closer – unless we’re talking about zombies, then keep them as far away as possible!

It’s an old adage that many of us have repeated before, usually in response to a bit of bullshit drama that cropped up in our otherwise peaceful lives.  It relates to backstabbing co-workers and two-faced friends that we just can’t get away from; awful in-laws and despicable boy/girl-friends of others that for whatever reason just won’t go away.

It’s basic meaning is to play nice with your “enemies” and to not let them know how much you really despise them and wish horrific suffering to be done to them so as not to rock the proverbial boat and cause ourselves and those around us unnecessary stress.  It keeps us out of the line of fire and in the in with what our “enemies” are thinking and up to.

A Zombie Apocalypse is going to put quite a new twist on this one.

It won’t be “unnecessary stress” that we’ll be trying to avoid but a surprise bullet to the back of the head!

She has many names and many faces but we’ve all met this crazy bitch before.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Zombies won’t be our only threat come ZDay.  Our fellow warmblooded, still breathing humans will be just as dangerous.

An event like a zombie apocalypse is sure to dement even the strongest of us so what will it do to the already illogical and unreasonable people in this world?

Go ahead and think of that one person in your life (be it co-worker, relative, neighbor, etc) that drives you insane and who you can’t stand under the best of circumstances yet you still play nice with.  Now imagine what they’ll be like during a zombie apocalypse.

Yeah, that just ruined your day a little didn’t it?

Now I’m sure some of you are thinking Fuck em, I’ll just save everyone the headache and shoot em in the head!  It’s the zombie apocalypse after all, I don’t have time for any bullshit!

If you did think that (or something similar) you have proven why you’ll need to keep your friends close but your enemies closer because if you can feel that way about another person then I can guarantee you that someone else will feel that way about you.
