Gossip as we all know “is idle talk or rumor, especially about the personal or private affairs of others”

“The act of gossipping is also known as dishing or tattling”.

But only a few of us knows the true event about the invention of the word or act of gossiping…

I’ll tell you…

Back in the days… as early as the days of the ancient Greeks/Romans and co… 

The act of rivalry existed so much that everyone had to be careful and on there guard.. this brought about the need for all and sundry to always have someone whose job ultimately was just to go out to places of crowd…(I.E Pubs, Market places, Village squares, Battle fields and even as far as someones (a rivals) House to pick up information for their master..

Now this is the real idea..  Masters will ask their spy’s or service boys/girls to (GO) out into the bars and (SIP) their drinks and eves drop on what people have to say about either about them or just about everything they were opportune to hear/listen to.

With which at the end of the day, every service boy will in return go back to his master and give the gotten information..

Evolution made it clear and now its coined into a simple word…

  1. I hate gossip and everything it stands for. It's not healthy for people who are being talked about and those who are talking about them. I must say, I had no idea that's where the work gossip came from!

  2. I didn't have any idea that there's some history behinds gossip. Tell you the truth people never changed, just we didn't know many things about past 'cause everyone cared for their reputation. People nowadays do what they do when ever and where ever.

  3. Very interesting! Even though i prefer to talk about ideas or everyday things, i must admit gossiping with your best friends from time to time is really fun 🙂

  4. Lol, what an interesting post, but this remind of high school because our high school really knows for Gossip and made up stories thank you for sharing this
