    Perhaps the other woman got preferential treatment because she worked and did not gossip.

    Women gossip like babies poop. All day long and the outcome is always nasty.

    This makes me sick. They should be sued for slander. These gabby old bags should suffer.

    Oh, the men at my workplace are WORSE than the women. If you want to know the latest news ask any of them. It’s like working with harpies but they only have d***s.

    Thats interesting, because I havnt heard about any MALE workers being fired for gossiping.

    And for you ladies to know these men are gossiping, then you must be in on it too.

    PlEASE, Men do not gossip. We use strategically enhanced communications to render our enemies powerless. I work with a office full of women gossipers. I swear a story will start at 8am and be around the office before 9am.

    You’re very, very close. If men do it, they just don’t call it gossip.

    Men are authoritative – where women are considered bitc*y.

    I work for a vice president of a large corporation and he brags about how he likes to start rumors/gossip just to see how fast it spreads.

    So, don’t tell me men don’t gossip.

    In my own experience men get away with not calling our “strategic communications trees” gossip because we mostly talk about work-related items when we gossip. We also tend not to openly solicit gossip, it’s more tacit. The women I’ve worked with have almost all openly asked for “the gossip”, “the juice” or whatever else they want to call it. They are also more actively interested in the personal goings on of coworkers than men are. Men want to know who is brokering what deal, where the strategic advantage lies and how can we profit. Women want to know who is getting married, who is having an affair and who is having surgery.

    Just my experience.

    Also, remember these women were spreading rumors across the WHOLE TOWN!!

    ITs a fact that through out the day men speak on average 1000 less words than women.

    Lastbat honey,

    Where I work – the men tell all of that and know BEFORE MOST of the women! It’s not strategy it’s GOSSIP. My former boss liked to spread tales too and then blindside people at eval time with stuff he started on the floor. He knew very well that the rumors would get out of control and demoralize people but did he care? H*ll to the No! This is a MAN mind you.

    I have to admit that the settlement was much more reasonable then most I’ve seen the courts hand out. Only $65k/person and both sides agreed to play nice.

    Absolutely astounding.

    Bear false witness and this is what it gets you….a damaged reputation yourself. I hope your Legal Counsel got the bulk of the monies. Evil & shameful behavior.
