What are your thoughts?
Sitting at a table opposite three women, I'd say aged in their late thirties.
One lady has a 3 year old son ( I know as she briefly asked me the age of mine).
For the whole 30 minutes we were there, one lady *****ed about her single mum friend to the other two and dominated the entire conversation.
The mother with her child sitting next to her got up once, as he wanted to play in the play area. Her reply, Let's stay here for a minute as I just want to hear the end of the story.

Mother *****ing about friend to other friends in front of child

Thirty minutes is a bit much. But I'd say it's probably normal I guess, it's called gossip and unless the conversation was especially explicit, I don't see an issue with it? Obviously not nice to be dissing another person, but why would it effect you? I don't think the 3 year old would have understood any of it, anyway.
ETA- I'd have got up and sat away if it was bothering me. But really wouldn't see it as any of my business.

The 3yr olds in my class are very clever and imitate everything they see/hear. I think parents need to be mindful of what type of example they are setting.
