Watch Watercooler Chat

Everyone likes to chat about the latest developments on their favorite reality TV show – come on, who won’t cop to watching “American Idol?” “Big Brother?” “Survivor?” “The Biggest Loser,” “Celebrity Apprentice?” or other reality shows?

I, too, can’t wait to share my take on what happened the night before with various staff members.

But, when it comes to gossip, and spreading rumors, that’s a whole other story. Although tempting, it’s just not nice to share stories about those you work with – whether your bosses or colleagues. Gossip can be hurtful, dangerous and rude.

So, resist the temptation to chime in, when others start dishing their latest theories on who’s been dating who, or having an affair. Also, stay away from gossipers -- you don’t want to be associated with them.

Remember, what goes around comes around.

Karma’s a funny thing … you certainly don’t want to be the topic du jour for next week!
