When your Boss is having an Affair with a Co Worker
I am writing this Hub in response to Snoblet’s Question in Q & A.
Snoblet Asks: "What will you do if you find out your Boss is having an Affair with your co worker?" I personally would:
a) Remind myself that it is none of my Business.
b) Keep a professional attitude towards them and turn a blind eye.
c) Be Diplomatic. I have observed in such situations, if you step on any one of their toes, you will upset both of them and in the case of the co-worker, the Boss would take their side.
d) Not engage in any office Gossip about them or even stay around it, to avoid any implications. Once people start chit chat about it, I'll go and grab a coffee.
e) If it gets to a point where it affects my work. Example, I rely on my Co-worker as a team-member and they consistently don’t deliver or something else. Then, I might either consider speaking to a Senior Manager, looking for another Job or praying them away.This could mean they would end up getting a Transfer or have to travel somewhere urgently, or be even given another position, which keeps them out of my way. God works in mysterious ways. (◕‿◕).
I have been in a position where my Boss was going out with a Colleague. They were both Senior staff and were so lovely to me, so I never had a problem with them. I even got promoted because of them. They just happened to find love in the Workplace and never rubbed it in our faces.
What would you do if your Boss was having an Affair with a Co Worker?
