Did you hear about so and so?

If gossip would happen to pass your way would you listen?

  • I think all people tend to do this. It is human nature to be interested in others. However when the talk turns mean,I tend to end the conversation. No one is perfect and we all make mistakes that can be gossiped about. The thing to keep in mind is that you are only hearing a small part of the story and the full version lies within that person.

  • I think everyone gossips, I honestly have NEVER met a person who doesn't. And I really believe if you say you don't, you are lying, lol. But like the pp said, MOST gossip should be taken with a grain of salt.

  • Conversation can quickly turn to gossip, I consider who is the deliver and weigh their concerns.
