Most people I am around know I hate to gossip about people and they really try hard not to with me cause the gossip stops with me and I make them look at it from every angle. There are a few that just can not help themselves. It is almost like they only can thrive if they are talking about someone else. I have one lady that just yesterday told me about a guy who she heard had a really bad girl friend. I looked at her and said have you met her? She said no. I said well I have and she seems very sweet and seems to care about him deeply. The look on her face was as if I had slapped her. She so wanted to dig into the dirt and I wouldn't let her. It almost made me laugh. So do you know anyone that has to gossip? What do you do with them?

No wonder it is so very common every where in this mother earth - gossiping! I have friends, colleagues and even neighbors who indulge in gossips. I think this people do not have any serious business. Starting with a traditional 'Do you know' they end up manufacturing big stories about anyone and everyone. So far and so long these are done for entertainment or time-pass, I find no harm in it. But I particularly dislike those who spread gossips intentionally to defame the people they do not like. I am very much aware these are baseless, and I have done my level best to communicate my distrust on such rumors but nothing can stop them from whispering. I seriously avoid them as I simply hate it, being a loud spoken personality ever.

I know a couple of people like this and have a way of dealing with them. First of all i listen and then refuse to join in until the subject of the gossip is present, this seems to stop them in their tracks blessed be
