How To Stop Church Gossip

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the
church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's
business. Several members did not approve of her extracurricular
activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused Frank, a new member,
of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front
of the town's only bar one afternoon.

She emphatically told Frank (and several others) that every one
seeing it there WOULD KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING !

Frank, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just
turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny.
He said nothing.

Later that evening, Frank quietly parked his pickup in front of
Mildred's house... walked home... and left it there all night.

(You gotta love Frank!)

    In most aspects of life there seems to be at least that one person who enjoys spreading rumors. Glad she got her comeuppance in the story. Go Frank! emoticon -- Lou
