Why is it that when you live in a small town, EVERYONE, and I mean everyone, thinks they know your business? You know it usually gets started over something so small and explodes into something huge. I don’t understand why or how these things get started. The main thing you hear about is a neighbor is now sleeping with the other neighbor and they are both married or someone is pregnant and not with their husbands baby.
It drives me nuts!! I will bump into people at the store or on the street and we stop and have a light conversation and carry on our way. Well, don’t go back to town for the next couple of days because who knows what people will be saying about you.
An example-I went out for supper and a couple of drinks with a girlfriend and not my husband. Well, we happened to go out to a social the next weekend and people were saying that we were on the rocks because I had gone out without him the weekend before!!
I just don’t understand. Is it something that everyone does? Do we all talk about people, and as time and the story gets told, it changes and changes???
This is the one thing I must say I HATE this about living in a small town. Everyone thinks they know your business!!! Does this kind of thing happen to anyone else???
