Have you ever walked in to an office to hear someone talking about you or someone you know in hushed tones? You can barely make out what is being said but you know it was about you?


No matter what was being said, it never feels good to hear words that are not meant for your ears.

Before you go talking about people in a public place, such as a restaurant, please remember that someone at the next booth might know the people you are talking about. This is especially important if you are in, or about to enter a real estate transaction.

Barbara Le Pine - Wow, that brings back a memory from the days that I worked in a large corporation. Intrigue was always rife, and one day overheard several of my coworkers how to try to undermine me with the boss. Being forwarned of this move helped me immensely but, looking back, I would rather not have heard it. I left that toxic environment soon after. Trust was gone!

I never say anything about someone that I would not say to their face. Even the bad stuff.
