Watch out for the joy-stealers: gossip, criticism, complaining, faultfinding, and a negative, judgmental attitude. Joyce Meyer

It seems that in every microcosm of society, every walk of like there is a gossip. You start a new job, and on the first day, someone pulls you aside and gives you the lowdown about every employee. Sure, you feel informed, but it might have been wise for that person to let you judge people and find out things for yourself. Have you experienced this before?

Although it could be valuable, like if you are warned about another employee's mood swings and not to take it too personally, what is your overall feeling regarding the town gossiper as it were?
