1. Gossip is the glue that holds you together.
Your Irish friend loves to talk shite about others and hear all the latest water cooler gossip from the office. Conversation ebbs and flows between Mary, who made a proper state of herself last night, the drunken hookup of her best friend Cindy, and Mark, who’s put on a lot of weight in the past few months. Without gossip, your friendship would cease to exist. Just remember that if they tell you, you can’t tell anyone!
