Default When it is none of my concern -

A phrase I have found somewhat useful - and descriptive!

Not my circus, not my monkey!

Do you have any favorites?

That's a good one. Lately I'm using "I can do crazy all by myself so I'm staying out of that one".

I like to say, "not my pasture, not my cow dung."

"To each his own", said the little old lady as she kissed her cow.

A phrase I learned from my Mennonite friends, "It doesn't suit."


If it isn't fire, flood or blood, I don't want to hear it now.

Even though I am 100% American, I love this phrase:

"Don't get your knickers in a twist"
