Gossiping work colleagues
There are two woman at work who constantly gossip about everyone in the office. I have never come across anything like it in my life. If the boss calls a staff member into the office, they are the first to phone and ask whats going on. They want to know everything about everyone - even stuff going on in a persons personal life. I really dont know how to deal with these two woman 'cos I actually cannot stand them. They backstab everybody at work. They are so sweet in front of people but behind their backs they are terrible. They find fault with everyone. Why do they behave like this? I cannot stand the sight of them. How do i deal with them? I am so dying to give them a piece of my mind.

Why they do this isn't necessary to know, it's more important to decide how to deal with them, such as simply ignoring them. DON"T give them a piece of your mind --- they'll never give it back again ; but you'll have gifted them with a marvellous fresh piece of gossip --- so don't please them so much. They'll get their come-uppance in time --- wait, and watch.
