A Gossip Likes To Gossip

A person who habitually engages in idle talk about other people is called a gossip. The idle, often sensational and groundless talk about others is called gossip. To engage in or spread gossip is to gossip.

I dislike a gossip; I dislike gossip; and, I dislike to gossip. I have informed all the people close to me of my feelings on the subject, and yet, time and time again, they continue to get into the gossip mode of their conversation, at which point it is no longer our conversation.
I HATE IT!

A gossip likes to gossip. When a gossip not only likes to gossip, but seems to love to gossip to the point that it is only gossip that is the focus of all their standard conversation, problems are bound to occur for sure.

The sad thing is that gossip is everywhere; it seems as though there is no escaping from it. Gossip here; gossip there; gossip everywhere.
I repeat:
I HATE IT!
I HATE IT!
I HATE IT!

    “Words carry the potential of causing catastrophic harm, often tearing asunder families and friendships. The destructive power of negative speech is only surpassed by the beneficial power of positive speech.”
