To the ladies at the office who whisper & gossip: Remember when your back is turned, the person you're gossiping with is gossiping about you. Listen to how someone speaks - if they're talking shit to you about someone, most likely they're talking shit about you to someone else.

Gossip is evil stuff, when I hear it I walk in the other direction which means I’m alone at work a lot.

I have

I've worked with toxic people like that and the best thing to do is just stay away from them as far away as you can.

My point exactly

I am not religious but from a christian perspective, gossip is the devil's radio. Don't be a broadcaster.

That’s odd. I worked in multiple offices during my long career, and I can’t remember any of them being so lax that people could seriously get away with not working for the majority of the day. In fact it was quite the opposite. So many companies “downsized” since the 80’s, and what that really meant is that they got rid of people but they didn’t get rid of the actual work. The end result is just as much work with far fewer people to do it. That leaves the employees I observed having to work 3 times harder. The stress levels in some offices are huge, with people burning out left and right. The offices I’m referring to were a mix of union and nonunion. I was a consultant or in senior management, but the admin staff were pretty much always hard at work. There’s no way that they would have been able to keep their jobs if they’d truly been that unproductive.

I've worked with men. They gossip.
And using the word ladies gives away your age.

I have consulted around office critters for a long while, and they are all guilty of what you spell out, but the absolute worst are the sort who, while slacking as all desk jockeys w/o deliverables do, complain "man I am swamped" or "man, I am so tired." Why? From all of that sitting? It's tiring, isn't it, you could be napping!

Its true..

If someone gossips negatively to you about someone else, dont think you are not chatted about too!
Those kind of people are very boring and uninteresting people, with nothing better to talk about.. Apparently..lol

Don’t be an hypocrite
