Well, it just seems to me that Smith-villians are the best around at it. I guess they want to talk about others to take the focus off of what they're doing!!

Smithvillians, Livertians, etc. I am so glad to be out of Dekalb. My family was new to town, but had family ties to the area. I have never in my life before or after been treated like such an outcast. Not a yankee, a true Southerner, but poorly treated by that place. Gossip gossip. Glad to be gone.

Yes, I was born there,(no fault of my own lol) but SOOO glad that I finally escaped! I feel like a bird out of a cage, and am so glad I don't have to hear all the back biting and lies and gossip. I do still have some family there, and occasionally have to visit, but I could almost have a panic attack when I do!! It almost makes me physically sick to be there. There are more self-righteous people there than you can imagine. Most people think there should be two sets of rules- ones for others and ones for themselves. They flap their gums and act holier than thou toward people they think are doing "awful" things, but it's the best thing since sliced bread when they or their families do the same things, or even worse. I guess people gossip so much there because there is NOTHING to do there, and people want to keep it that way because they are afraid their taxes might be rasied twenty bucks to get something.
