Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business.
Several members did not approve of her extra-curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked
in front of the town's only bar one afternoon.
She emphatically told George (and several others) that every one seeing it there would know what he was doing!
Being a man of few words,  he stared at her for a moment and then just turned and walked away. 
He didn't explain, defend, or deny.  He said nothing. 
Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup
in front of Mildred's house...walked home...and left it
there all night.
(You've just got to love George!).
