In today’s society, everything and anything is fast becoming acceptable. The lines of normalcy are thinning out and everyone seems to be taking advantage of this. Even female bosses! Or how else does one explain a female boss repeatedly calling her male subordinate in the middle of the night?
A friend of mine was lamenting bitterly to me over the past weekend about how her husband’s boss seems to have become a third wheel in their marriage. The boss (code-named Lady-T) had resorted to engaging her husband in all sorts of activities which included:
- Taking her to lunch (under the guise that she hated to eat alone).
- Dropping documents for her at home after the close of work.
- Picking up stuff from her house during the weekends for use at the office.
- Accompanying her for outside town meetings and conferences.
- Buying him gifts
The worse part (at least to my friend) was the nightly calls. She divulged that at least 3 times in a week, Lady T and her Husband would spend nothing less than 30 minutes on the phone, talking work gibberish interjected with chuckles. And every time she confronted her husband about his closeness with his boss, he would ask if she would prefer him to be jobless!
The issue started 6 months ago, and the possibility of her husband becoming jobless is starting to look rather appealing to my friend. At least, more appealing than the thought that her husband sleeping around with his boss.
She concluded her story by letting on that at the beginning of the Lady-T’s drama series, her husband used to get so upset at the personal errands and duties. But his irritation had metamorphosed to acceptance and now he considered his boss’s behaviour “normal”.
What can I do MFA, she asked with tears in her eyes. If it was in my “hey” days, I would have advised her to properly investigate the situation and ascertain if anything weird was going on and take quick action. You know what I mean when I say properly investigate abi? lol. Any ways being a repentant woman I had to ask her temper justice with mercy and lets take it to the Lifetitude House for proper dissecting.
So people, when is close, too close? When should the line be drawn with female bosses and bosses in general? What should a woman do if she suspects her man and his boss are fooling around?
