Thankfully the only person I can gossip with in the office is in my mirror

Some of these might be kept for entertainment :D But most I tend to agree can be toxic

The "office gossip" is not always toxic.  I have a few that would come to me and say, "Hey, I heard your name mentioned when the boss was looking for someone to head the XYZ project".  A few days later the boss did ask me to - and thanks to the "benigh gossiper", I had time to research a bit about that paritcular project, was able to decide whether I should accept or turn down the assignment, and had a more intelligent disucssion.
