That's why I don't divulge a lot of things to certain people and certain others, I just don't say anything.

YOU SAY IT BEST, WHEN YOU SAY NOTHING AT ALL.

I have a rule never to tell someone something I wouldn't want repeated.

My gram taught me:

If you don't want it out on the streets, don't have it come out of your mouth.

Confront her anyway. I know I would just to make them feel as uncomfortable as they made me. And then proceed to ditch them as a "friend".

I don't know. I work in a place where everyone is a gossip monger and everyone talks about everyone behind their back. It drives me crazy. Because you can inadvertently become a part of that. Say two people are talking about somebody and you can't help but say "who said what now?" and you accidentally become a gossip monger.

Some people just can't keep their mouths shut. I don't know why they care anyways.
