So my Boyfriend or Best Friend ran into a friend of his at the grocery store where she works and they stopped to chat for a few minutes. They have been friends for a long time and they basically have a brother/sister relationship.
Anyway, this friend (let’s call her “J”) was apparently in a bad mood and Boyfriend or Best Friend picked up on it and asked her what was wrong. She told my Boyfriend or Best Friend that she is pissed off at her boyfriend “L”, who she’s been with for 5 years.
She wasn’t able to tell him much of the details because her boss suddenly came in and she had to get back to work.
Boyfriend or Best Friend came over to my place and instantly told me what happened. Then he said something like “I really wish her boss didn’t come in, I want to know what happened!”
The next night while we were out on a date, we happened to drive by the same grocery store. Boyfriend or Best Friend turns into the parking lot and starts searching for J’s car.
I started laughing and said, “Are you actually looking for her car??”
Boyfriend or Best Friend turns to me with a sheepish look on his face and said, “Yes…I’m sorry, I want to know what’s going on with her and L!”
I just laughed and helped him look for her car. Turns out though, she wasn’t working that night.
A few nights later, Boyfriend or Best Friend finally runs into J again and manages to get the whole story. After he leaves, he calls me and tells me what happened. I won’t go into details here though just in case.
Anyway, this whole thing has made me tease Boyfriend or Best Friend a little bit about how he is basically gossiping with me. I even said “Hmm, I bet men actually gossip more than women do, they just don’t like to admit it!”
He said, “Bullshit! You take that back right now!”
Then we got into a pseudo argument about which gender actually gossips more which had me cracking up!
So ladies, I pose this question to you. Who gossips more? Men or women? Examples of your own SO gossiping are welcomed 🙂
