To Illustrate: Gossip

In a particular church they had a lady who was known to be the town gossip. She was always sticking her nose into other people’s business. One day she accused a new member of being an alcoholic because she had seen his truck in the parking lot in front of a bar. The new member said that he had simply parked there; but the gossip said that if his truck was parked in front of the bar, she knew he was up to no good inside.
The new member, being a quiet sort, simply and silently walked away from the accusation. He didn’t try to talk her out of anything. He did, however, get a bit of revenge when later that evening he quietly parked his truck in front of the gossip’s house, walked home and left it there all night.
