Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's
morals, kept sticking her nose in to other people's business.
Most members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared
her enough to maintain their silence.
She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being
an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only
bar one afternoon.
She emphatically told George and several others that everyone seeing it
there would know what he was doing.
George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and
He didn't explain, defend, or deny, he said nothing.
Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred's
house, walked home, and left it there all night.
You gotta love George.
Thanks Ellen S.
