The Price Of Gossiping

Via Drudge- Four Hooksett town, N.H, employees with 46 years of service between them were fired, in part for gossiping and discussing rumors of an improper relationship between the town administrator and another employee that Hooksett residents now agree were not true. (more)

Wonder if these measures were applied in Tunisia ;)

Seriously, when we graduate junior high, this is supposed to stop. I personally think it's great that those women got fired. I'm sure it's the only time they've ever paid the price for gossiping in such a manner that it actually left a lasting impression on them. Small towns, in particular, are notorious for never letting residents forget about their past transgressions. As if that's not bad enough, to have to pay the same price for something that never even happened is unreasonable. Gossip is malicious, and the havoc it creates can deteriorate a workplace atmosphere as much as the threat of violence. Bet they won't do that again...
