"Now I have got some news for you," said Lydia, as they sat down at table. "What do you think? It is excellent news – capital news – and about a certain person we all like!"
Jane and Elizabeth looked at each other, and the waiter was told he need not stay. Lydia laughed, and said:
"Aye, that is just like your formality and discretion. You thought the waiter must not hear, as if he cared! I dare I say he often hears worse things said than I am going to say. But he is an ugly fellow! I am glad he is gone. I never saw such a long chin in my life. Well, but now for my news; it is about dear Wickham; too good for the waiter, is it not? There is no danger of Wickham’s marrying Mary King. There’s for you! She is gone down to her uncle at Liverpool: gone to stay. Wickham is safe."

– Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 39. Lydia Bennet displays a complete lack of tact and decorum when she announces some gossip and speaks about the appearance of a servant at the table. Describing the waiter in demeaning and dismissive terms, she obviously looks down her nose on the serving class. Her gossip concerns the end of George Wickham’s relationship with Mary King.
