The Lady Gumshoes...

Why are people so fascinated with other people's lives?

Famous people are a perfect example. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Tabloids running around snapping photos of the famous couple.




I am guessing the tree was not for dramatic effect. Just a guess.




But this is not a post about prying into famous peoples' lives it can happen to regular people too.

It's about Daddy Long Legs, Pipes and Irish doing some digging. Here's the background.

The 3 of people all have a common acquaintence. There have been some unanswered questions that have come up in the last few weeks - so they started a conspiracy theory. It involves the internet, prison and marriage. All intertwined. All very interesting.

If they were TRUE gumshoes they would find a way to tactfully ask the source for the story and trust me - there is a story. Instead they use the internet and after work chitty chats to discuss the possible theories. Not really much different than the tabloids.

Ah - the things people will do to make work more interesting.

Good thing I'm not interested in the story in the least.
Nope.
Not me.
I mean, I don't even know who the hell you're talking about.
So I certainly wouldn't be getting all itchy. Thoughts like, "Maybe if I Google those three names, I'll figure out what the hell she's talking about..."

UGH! Must. Know. The. Story.
