Hushhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

well.. this article gave me something to thnk about....
Gossips - Does it give the mind happiness and peace of having scolded the bosses and the co-workers with ur fellow gossipers..... or does it leave you with a guilt in ur mind ... or does it give a wrong impression about the person you gossipped to the people who were talking with you.... tricky.. but all three are true! i used to think %&%&#& of people who talked bad abt someone when they werent there... the immediate thought tht went into my head was "well if i aint there wud they talk of me the same way" ... tht was when i initially joined job... now i look at gossiping like a whining club (nope this has no reference to the marina laughter club) ... its more of bartender** job taken in swaps... and interestingly in most cases ppl who tend to be in that group would be of same or similar levels in the organization (am limited myself to office gossips .. don't even wanna go into the other ones!! )...
to think about it, it gives u immense satisfaction after having talked about something which was irritating you for some time with someone who is also completely aware of the situation (discussing the same with kith and kin jus gets u empathy coz they cant REALLY put themselves into your shoes -- though they do it with more love and sincerity than in the above case ;-) ).. but at the same time talking ill of someone is not something i prefer.... well i can hear you guys say, now cut the crap, tell your point and don't waste our time.. the point is that I feel gossips do make me happy (the thought gives me creeps) but at the same time if those gossips go beyond the whinings and get into jealousy and unethical competition then am not into it! my gossips have always been limited to office things which i have not been able to say openly out in public..... and at times its a boon coz the things discussed reach the people to whom it was intended originally without even you actually telling them ...

Just to forget about ones own problems for atleast sometime, people talk about others and that is the same reason some watch serials. I feel people who gossip are clear headed and don't always sit brooding over their own problems.
I feel, gossiping is ok, if it would subside your frustration instead of aggravating it.
