Sexcetera: Advice from Steve

Posted: July 13, 2012

Q: One of my cubicle mates is sneaking around with a married man in another department. I'm newly married and, frankly, I'm tempted to make an anonymous phone call to this man's wife. I'm not going to dime out my colleague. I just want to let this woman know that her husband isn't working as late as he claims, so maybe she can get him to stop. I tried talking to my cubicle mate about this but she's in la la land, convinced that he's going to leave his wife and kids and be with her. I thought she was smarter than this, but I guess she's getting older and must be tired of living with nobody but her cats to keep her company.

MIA: Glad you're happily married, but you're not the marriage police. Mind your business. This has nothing to do with you. Concentrate on making sure you have a happy home so that one day, a cat lady doesn't start seeing your guy on the sly.

STEVE: Causing trouble for others is bad karma. Be careful, lest you wind up with cats yourself.
