My HR department would probably deny it, but my office is gossip-crazed. Between people dishing in the breakroom, and instant messages flying around the office I feel like I am trapped in a seventh grade girl's world. I try to stay out of the fray, but my reluctance to take part in the office whispering has made me a target of constant questions about my personal life. I don't want everyone to dislike me, but at the same time I don't feel like I should have to pour my heart out to everyone in the building. How do I politely let them know I am not into "sharing".
