Let me share with you this before I sign off for the weekend and also to testify that sometimes if not most of the times that men are the worst when it comes to "gossiping"
I was waiting for someone for tea break chat the other day, next to my table,seated two men,(about my age, i reckon) Then was a brand new BMW pulling over at the roadside, it was a shinny polished BMW,when it stalled, a beautiful young lady alighted from it,then I heard.
The following conversation ensued and exchanged between that two men seated next to me before that beautiful lady took her time and sauntering into the coffee shop.
One started by saying this," This girl must have gotten herself a rich boyfriend or she must be those that "being kept" by rich married men" then the other friend interjected," I think so also cos she looks so young and sure cannot afford a car like that, or may be coming from a rich family"
I was kind of stunned hearing those conversation for the fact that I personally knew this girl from that BMW, she was not "being kept", she was not from rich family and she was still single and very independent and most of all she was doing very well in her insurance business.
The eyes of that two men were following the girl and when she started waving me at me, these two men gave me a kind of look as if I was the one" keeping" this beautiful girl, I could read that from their "uncultured" and "uneducated" stares, then as soon as she seated next to me, I purposely acted "suspiciously" as if I was the "lady keeper" by pulling my chair closest to my dear friend than I deliberately raised my voice with this statement.
I said," You know the one you showed me was so good lah, I think I like it a lot, may be have to wait until my wife goes back to JB,then we can really sit down to do it again because I don't want my wife to know that I am interested with another one some more" I knew that my dear friend was lost with what I said,then to quell her confusion I added that we have got too much insurance already and my lovely wife might not like to buy another. You know I just wanted to floor those two guys with a slap on their faces. Ditto.
Now,don't you think men sometimes are worst gossipers and did you know even the Lord cautions us about gossipers, " A gossip betrays confidence, so avoid a man or a woman who talks too much"
Have a great weekend and God bless ya
