Gossip

Mildred, the church gossip and self-appointed monitor of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose into other people’s business. The church members didn’t approve, but they feared her enough to maintain their silence.

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

She emphatically told George and several others that everyone seeing his truck there would know what he was doing. George, 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, George quietly parked his truck in front of Mildred’s house, walked home…………and left it there all night!

Don’t ya just love ol’ George???
