I don’t talk much about others, and hardly ever do I get in the middle of other peoples business. But, the following situation is really weighing heavily on my mind. I guess if I talk to complete strangers about this, maybe it will go away.
Before I go any futher let me say this. I AM FULLY AWARE THAT THIS IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS. IT JUST BOTHERS ME.
I have two friends/co-workers. One I have been friends with since I started working there. He has always been helpful, and has always looked out for me as I was green on every level of my new career. We don’t talk to each other as often as we used to, just in passing. But we always have very pleasant friendly converstions. Never anuthing our of line, or scandalous. He knows I will be married next year. And has always wished nothing but the best for us. He has a Girlfriend, I have never met her. He talks of her all the time. Tells me he wants to marry her, but is waitng until she is on her way back to better health (she has been diagnosed with cancer, and has been sick for over a year). He plans to take her away and propose. I kind of pushed on this issue with him,, and he told me he wouldn’t ask until she feels better. Which I do agree with him, he does pay for all of the treatments for her.
The other, is more just an aquaintance. She also works at the same place. She is married, only for a couple of years. I talk with her in passing. I don’t know much about her, other than she is very religious and this is very important to her.
Well as of late, there is some chatter at work. How they are always missing in action at the same time, and then just appear later. I know that in the past the two of them had a fling. Some of the things I hear at work, is just down right hateful comments, to which I generally do no comment. But I too think something is going on.
I guess what bothers me is him in this whole ordeal. We had a very long conversation about him and his sick Girlfriend. And how he loves her so much, and would wait forever for her to get well. This whole idea (rumor) makes me just sick! I ran into him a couple of days ago, and it took all I had to just mind my business. But yet it just chews on my guts, and I just want to kick him hard in the shin and say WTF??
I don’t know which is worse? The man running about leaving a sick Girlfriend looking like a fool. Or the woman who is newly married running about on her husband.
I don’t understand people. I just feel bad, like I should say something to him. But I just don’t know how to breach the subject. Sometimes I feel like maybe I am just a prude. Am I the only person who feels so strongly about infidelity??
