Nosey Noserson

What some folks call 'caring concern' others might call 'being nosey'. Intent is important IMO (in my opinion.) What is motivating the interest in someone else's private affairs?

The closer the relationship ties the more valid and even necessary the 'need to know'. The more disconnected the relationship the less the need to know.

OK let's bring this home ~ right into the home in fact ~ are you more interested in what is happening on the world news show (it is a show you know) than you are in how your spouse's day went or what your kids are going through in school?

Perhaps we need to be more nosey caring, especially when it comes to those who are immediately and directly effected by whether we do... or don't.
