My neighbour is texting me after being snooty with me for months

This can only mean that she wants to tell me something about someone that I don't want to hear.

A good bit of gossip is just too much for some people 馃槖

Do you know anyone like that?

I used to. I鈥檝e made a point of either telling them flat out to bring the gossip elsewhere or simply cutting them from my life.

[@527654,Zaphod42] I was hoping she would continue to not talk to me as I ignore her calls.

[@337880,CheshireCatalyst] Feel like I have to head up with a disclaimer lol "please don't tell me anything about anyone!"

I worked with a group where at least 3 of them were like this at any one time. One of the would even come back to visit at lunch period to 鈥渢alk鈥 to employees so she could dig up dirt to call and talk with about to other employees. Some people need to get a life.

[@1095867,KuroNeko] if you saw them again 10 years later they would still most likely be having the same problems and same drama
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@668319,morrgin] she tells me the same stories over and over as it is so that's very likely.
cherokeepatti61-69, F
[@668319,morrgin] yes they are constantly living in chaos...nothing really gets settled or peaceful for them. I have known some that way and you can鈥檛 help them because they will take advantage of the help but aren鈥檛 willing to learn to make the necessary changes to stop it. I knew a woman who鈥檚 father was a preacher, her parents helped her every way they could but it got to a point because she had used her small children so much to exploit them and didn鈥檛 want to work etc. that they even put their foot down and stopped helping.

You could be upfront and tell them you aren't interested.
sassypants31-35, F
[@1095867,KuroNeko] No that's the worst. No one wants to hear that. Your neighbor is very insensitive.
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@581300,sassypants] she is but she tries to tell herself she is helping people 馃槖
sassypants31-35, F
[@1095867,KuroNeko] They are the worst.

KuroNeko41-45, F
[@935348,NightsWatch] Yeah, not snouty 馃ぃ

Or when they want gossip in someone 馃槖
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@406205,InOtterWords] I am guessing she knows something about my ex and is just bursting to tell me.

Gossip is fun 馃槍 You could listen to her for 5 minutes, then tell her you have to get the cookies out de oven

Make up something about yourself and see how long it takes for it to come back to you from another person馃槀
