She Mail: How To Handle A Co-Worker’s Extramarital Interoffice Affair
Julie Fisk is here to help. If you’ve got an issue or problem that you need some advice on how to deal, let Julie share some of her wisdom.
Here is this morning’s question:
I have a real problem on my hands. One of my co-workers is having an affair with my boss. To make it worse, they’re both married. I’m friends with this co-worker outside of work, so she’s been telling me all about it. She also drank too much at happy hour after work recently and started kinda alluding to it, like she wanted everyone else we work with to know about it. Now everyone is asking me questions and trying to get the details and I don’t know what to do.
Even worse, I’m afraid I could lose my job in all of this. What do you think?
Completely Freaking Out
Girl, you need to divorce yourself from the whole situation immediately. This sounds like it’s about to get ugly! Tell your friend that you don’t want to hear anymore about it. If she’s a good friend she’ll understand. If your co-workers continue to ask about it, tell them you know nothing. You’re right. Your job COULD be at stake, so shake it all off ASAP!
