My boss just hired a new girl. It’s her second day, we’re alone at the office together, and she just told me her husband called to tell her he’s leaving her.
I feel so awkward right now. I offered a few condolences but I just have no idea what to tell her beyond that…

Aww that really sucks. Why don’t you offer to give her a few minutes of privacy. That’s what I would want in that situation.

Second the privacy thing. I would definitely give her as much space as possible.

Yikes. Pretty sure you handled it better than I would’ve. My immediate reaction would’ve been to stare blankly.

I offered her some privacy and she says it’s ok. We have cubicles and sit on opposite ends of the room so at least there’s that, I suppose.
She told me she talks online with some old high school friends and somehow he got the idea that she’s cheating and is throwing her out and threatened to slash her tires. I mean…wow.
I was going to offer to let her stay at my place when she said she didn’t have anywhere to go but her dad called so I didn’t get a chance to do that – hopefully he’ll help her because she just moved here.
