A new study out of Great Britain found that women spend - get ready - five hours a day gossiping and chit-chatting.  At home or work, the average woman spends 298 minutes a day (one-third of her waking hours) talking to everyone from co-workers to complete strangers.  The number one thing they talk about is shopping, followed in order by diets and exercise, vacations, what they’d do if they won the lottery, health worries, lunch, whose dating whom, other people’s relationship problems, their kids, recipes, arguments with their partners, dress sizes, soap operas, other people’s kids, who they find attractive, their mothers-in-law, cosmetic surgery, complaints about their partners, and how people are aging. 

- Heck, the women on “The View” cover that and more in one hour!
