harmful for me or someone else i will simply make a request
to the person if it is not solved then i'l try to explain
the what will happen due to these kind of gossips.if after

Answer / soundr

its very pathetic to know that questions based on
gossipying are forming a part of yr company's interview.
i dont take gossyping seriously, becoz gosspying is done by
loosers. however, if it is totally intolerable, in my case
first i would make a friendly request to the concerned in
private to stop gossiping about me. if it fails to work, i
would make a stern warning to the person in public.

Answer / kashish

Gossip as long as it is harmless if fine. But to degrade
somebody by spreading rumours is not healthy. It is best to
avoid such company or discourage the person from indulging
in idle gossip.
