The other 2 people who responded are female.
Also, I’ve known more than my share of male gossips and pot stirrers in my time.
A grown man who knew my husband, and with whom I’d spoken to twice in my life, for I’m sure less than a total of 3 minutes, once told my husband that I said I was just waiting for him to die so I could get his money and benefits.
Fortunately husband had been burned by this guy in the past. So he just asked me, “when was the last time you talked to Ed”
I had to think, and said “I don’t know, maybe 3 years ago?”
