|Joan, the town gossip and self-appointed supervisor of the town's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several local residents were unappreciative of her activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.|
However, she made a mistake when she recently accused George, a local man, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup truck parked outside the town's only bar one afternoon.
George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just walked away without saying a word.
Later that evening, he parked his pickup truck in front of her house and left it there all night. Her gossiping ceased.
