    since this is the gossip section

    have you found your neighbors or relatives prone to gossip?

    ​​used to be very close with one of my sisters and share stuff until the day my mom repeated something to me that I'd told my sister
    she is very close to mom, so know I can no longer share any "sister secrets" with her
    she'll also get things mixed up so what gets passed along is actually portions of the truth

    My family and some close friends know things about me that aren't generally known. Their being privileged to that knowledge depends on their ability to not gossip.

      house for sale in neighborhood
      last week a neighbor told me that the person selling house got divorced and was moving out of state

      this week, I see the house for sale neighbor and we talk....no she's not getting divorced nor moving out of state!

      so why is the other person making up stuff?

        Some people make up stuff so they seem to be the one to go to for the latest.

          Or maybe that's what they heard and didn't bother to verify before passing along misinformation.

            I don't gossip, but can understand wanting to talk about what's going on in town. I think the term gossip is a negative term: it implies nasty talk. I don't say nasty things about people, I just talk about them a little. HOWEVER, I do not share private information and won't get involved in anything *****y. I am very loyal and know when not to talk. It isn't right to betray someone by telling others their business. Sometimes things are accidentally said, but that is seldom. I suppose it is about respect.
