How to stop a gossip

Mildred, the church gossip and self-appointed arbiter of the church's

morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several

members were unappreciative of her activities, but feared her enough

to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however, when she accused

George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup

truck parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She

commented to George and others that everyone seeing it there would know

what he was doing. George, a man of few words, stared at her for a

moment and just walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny, he said

nothing. Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front

of Mildred's house and left it there all night. :)
