    Re: bellow the stairs tattle

    Gossip about the employers or residents of the house passed around by the maids and other household staff. Some workers - cleaning women, laundry workers, etc - are described as "below stairs" because they're not meant to be seen while working and are supposed to work out of sight of their employers, unlike valets and personal maids who often work alongside their employer.
