this is the truth...anyone can come into this town, tell the good people a story (not factual), and they believe it. it doesn't matter that they know better or that they have known the individual forever, they fall for it...hook, line, and sinker! why? because gossip is better than the truth....in natchitoches! this entire town can be bought...everyone here has a price, no matter how small or large. and, if that price is met, who cares about loyalty or hurting an innocent person? no one here, that's for sure! it's sad that the people of this town is so gullible.

And of course this NEVER happens anywhere but in Natchitoches. No other place in the world has gossip. No other place has anything wrong with it.

Thank you for pointing that out Raw. When it comes to stuff that happens in small towns, like gossip, Natchitoches is no better or worse than anywhere else. Problem is so few people don't have anything else to compare it to having lived here all their lives. That is not a bad thing, but it is the way it is.

I've have lived in Natchitoches for 26 years. It is a town full of gossip. People do believe everything they hear. People divorce, marry their friends divorced mates, etc. Yes, this does happen in other cities. I currently live in a large city now and have for over 20 years. However, in a large city, (500,000 or more), people tend to accept you for who you are and are not near as judgemental. If you don't live like the people in Natchitoches think you should, you are shunned.

DontB and RAW you are right. Gossip lives everywhere, whether in a large city or a small town. It doesn't make the city you live in a bad one, most of the time if you ignore it gossip will go away. If it doesn't then you will live over it, believe me, I know. The only thing I can say is if you try to make better choices from this day on you can avoid being the one gossiped about.

Well, I have something GOOD to say! For once there was more in the forum than a bunch of people whining, complaining, and trading insults. Through the forum I found out I could call Wards and get my garbage picked up right at my house! Since the dumpsters in my area were picked up recently, this information was GREAT! We called yesterday and got it all taken care of! I only wish I had known about this sooner! Thanks Forum!

Just about every time I hear someone start a story with the words, "Well I heard..." I completely tune out anything past that--it's a sure sign that the story is probably well past the truth, lol!

raw, dontb, you must work for the local newspaper...you know the one that doesn't report the truth about what goes on in this town, the one that only prints pretty flowers and happy faces on the front page....so the tourists will come!

come on, every one of you know exactly what i'm talking about...either you've lived it or you're the recipient of it...those are the only two options. in or out...black or white...there is no in between.

Nope, don't work for the newspaper. But I have lived in many places and have never found one that didn't have a lot of gossip, "scandals", cliques, like people complain about here. Strange as it may seem people are all pretty much the same in a lot of ways no matter where they live. I'm not saying gossip, etc does not exist. I'm saying its like that everywhere-not just in Natchitoches.

My guess would be that it would probably take less than five comments...thanks for starting this thread though, as you can see a lot of them thrive on gossip, can't help themselves.Whether it be in Natchitoches or another city.

I agree that gossip happens everywhee, especially in a small town, however during the twenty some years I lived in natchitoches, it seemed that everyone believed every rumor whether it was true or not. I now live in a large city and yes, gossip does occur but it doesn't seem as often as in Natchitoches. I am very thankful that I now live in a city with a progressive society instead of a regressive one like Natchitoches. There are plenty of good paying jobs here, plenty of things to do instead of watching the NSU demons play football (ugh) or the gras grow.
