So... one of the moms from the playgroup / moms group I'm in has aaid lots of bad things about other moms... criticizing, complaining, talking about another mom's marriage probs, you name it. So I told her, as kindly as possibly and in a non-condescending way to please not tell me anything negative about the other moms. She told me I was "overeacting" and rudely told me I was "hard to talk to", then said she needed to get off the phone. What would you have done? What would you do now?

I would've done the same and I'm willing to bet she's on the phone with one of those mom's she was gossiping about, telling her how "difficult" you are.

I don't associate with people like that. I have less friends because of it.

I would just not talk to her outside of the playgroup, maybe try telling one more time that you like her as a person and she sweet and funny but you dont like trash talking other moms and critizing their parenting?

Meh. You asked for it as far as I'm concerned. Some people are annoying like that, but calling her out puts you down on the same level. You don't get to decide what is appropriate behavior/talk and what is not. If you don't like how she is then don't associate with her. But don't tell someone something like that and expect a peachy reaction.

Oh grow up. You're choosing to associate with a person so deal with the fact that they aren't exactly like you. Or maybe they are and that is why you are overly sensitive to it? Seriously, who cares. Don't associate with her or just be polite and ignore it. You won't die from having to listen to someone else be annoying for one minute.
