To avoid the gossip-mongers
We all have been in a situation where people who usually doesn't care about us, show all the love and affection on "particular" occasions. For example, when your results are out, all those relatives who haven't even met you for ages, will be interested in knowing how you are doing.
MJ's "Thriller" will let you know how to deal with such people. The lyrics tells the story itself: "They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side. They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial."
