The church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals,
kept sticking her nose in to other people's business. Several 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 walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny... he said nothing.
Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of her house...
walked home... and left it there all night.
