In a small community gossip is similar to tattletaling, sometimes it's true and sometimes it's not, when it's not it can destroy the person being tattled on.
I was looking forward to becoming an adult when I was a child and not having to deal with tattletalers, and for most of my adult life tattletalers have been absent.
I didn't realize adult tatletailers can range from a bigmouth, blabberer, busybody, fink, informer,,scandalmonger, snitch, stool pigeon, tipster troublemaker and whistle-blower.
Please don't tell me to move, I like it on the Garden island but never in my life have I seen so many adults who get off tattletaling as I do on Kaua'i.
I guess with no night life, ferry boats or plastic bags, there's not much else to do on a tropical island. On a positive note, it sure beats drive-by shootings, or does it?
