"Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys" - Tapping with Brad Yates

In Poland, there's an idiom that I've recently fallen in love with. Nie mój cyrk, nie moje małpy literally, "not my circus, not my monkey;".

“Not My Circus Not My Monkeys”

In the email, the Interim Director referred to the school as a circus and the students as monkeys. I posted an article and I felt it had a tint of racism to it. However, the email flipped it around by saying it was their circus and the students were their monkeys. In another email I posted in the same article, a former staff member alleged the school was not hiring anyone but Caucasians to replace staff that left and the school was targeting certain zip codes to recruit students. I still think referring to your school as a circus and your students as monkeys is a bit odd, but because of this famous phrase which I never heard of until pretty much everyone on Facebook told me immediately after I am not alleging the phrasing was racist any longer.

A co-worker recently slipped a sign under my door with an old Polish proverb that reads, "Not my circus, not my monkeys. I got a really good chuckle out of it and hung it up in my office in a spot where only I can see it. Later that day, another co-worker came to me with a problem.

  1. The phrase itself has been used in such translation in the English language too, which supposes that it was borrowed from the Polish language.

  2. These odd little phrases are used to express a sentiment other than their literal meaning.
