My thought for today

Some people are gossips, unashamedly.  They probably feel they don’t have much going on in their lives so they feel the need to criticise others.  If you listen to them, even to be polite, you are actually lowering yourself to their level, making them think they have an interested audience.  This will encourage them to do it more.

The best thing to do is completely change the subject, perhaps turn it round to talk about them so they realise they do have something to be pleased with and worthy of talking about.

It’s  worth a try…
