Bad News Hockers

Every shul has hockers of various madreigos. There are stam hockers and then there are those who are gedolei hador when it comes to knowing the hock. These people know about events before they happen.

And then there are what I call Bad News Hockers.

They are the ones who are sure to rush over to you the second you walk into shul to tell you about the latest community tragedy. It doesn't matter what type of tragedy or whether you even know the person or people who are the subjects of the bad news. It's like they get their kicks from giving you bad news.

Yet another thing I don't quite get.
