The Church Gossip
Irene, the church gossip, and self
appointed monitor of the church's
morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's
business. Several members did not approve of her extra
curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain
She made a mistake, however, when she
accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after
she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only
bar one afternoon. She emphatically told George, and
several others, that everyone seeing it there would know
exactly what he was doing.
George, a man of few words, stared at her
for a few moments and just turned and walked away. He
didn't explain, defend or deny! He said nothing!
Later that evening, George quietly parked
his pickup in front of Irene's house .... walked home ....
and left it there all night.
You've gotta love George!
