  • i like walking into gas station and hearing the two behide counter gossiping
    funny when you have no idea who they are talking about
    most gossip is hurtful though
    gossip about famous people is ok, part of fame

  • Depends on the tone, intent and content.

    At a party once, a true Evil Gossip walked up to a group of people chatting and said 'omg, the married hostess if fucking a guest,' and I replied 'what, right now?' and walked away, found my husband and left. I never, ever need to be around anyone --or their friends-- who thinks that kind of communication is acceptable.

    On the other hand, talking about people and what they do --why they are doing what they do, what they seem to be trying to achieve, what they're hoping to avoid or what information they are using to make their choices-- is endlessly fascinating to me.

    I am really, really good at remembering examples of stories --people who said or did something that is like or illustrates some part of a discussion-- and really, really bad at remember who it was that was involved.

  • Ya know, I hate it and always talk about how much I do but for some reason I always find myself taking part in it. Why is that? I wish I would stop.
