On a scale of 1-10, I'd say I'm about a 4 or 5. Hey, I'm human. It's usually pretty harmless, and most of the time I can justify it with the "I'm just stating the truth" excuse. Like, yes, she was acting like a bitch...or, he's just using her for sex...or, her shoes are fug. Ya know, normal stuff.
And sometimes you just need to vent when a friend is grating on your nerves or lets you down, again. I hate when I complain about someone, and then ten minutes later they do or say something really sweet. That always makes me feel like shit, and I vow to never do it again. Until I do. And the cycle repeats itself. Ugh.
I have two friends, Logan and Jess, who have never EVER spoken a bad word against anyone--even when it is totally deserved. It blows my mind. I can say something like, "Wasn't it really rude the way she snapped at you?" and they'll just shrug it off and change the subject. Sometimes I try to egg them on just to see if they will finally give in and cut loose on someone, but nope. I have never succeeded. I need to be more like that 'cause I do believe in karma.
Ohh and what I really miss is WORK gossip. C'mon, who's got some good dish?! And how much would you say you gossip on a scale of 1 t0 10? I won't judge.
