When you know something you didn't want to know!
Well it’s at least cheered me up seeing some of the advice on here 😀
Yes, I am female…..and straight, so that course of action isn’t really an option, but at least we think outside the box on here 😀 😉
I saw more than just texts, we’ll leave it at that….your imaginations will probably come up with a much better scenario anyways, so I’ll leave you all to just imagine what else I may have seen!Posted 4 years agoPigfaceMember
I have a mate who is a serial cheater, he just can’t help himself. He can’t explain it himself, he did have a very screwed up upbringing with a vicious overbearing mother whose accent would cut glass but who would make the beast with two backs with anyone.
Cant see a happy ending in this one, as it stands no one knows you know so sharpen up your acting skills for when the inevitable happens.Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber
No-one knows you know.
The right thing to do is tell your boss. However, no-one will thank you for it. Your friend (or to give her the correct definition, co-worker) will hate you for it if she finds out, other employees will see you as a grass and not trust you to keep secrets, and your boss might even associate some of the blame with you directly or indirectly for being the bearer of bad news or not saying something sooner.
So doing the right thing aside, the most sensible course of action is to keep out of their way and say nothing.Posted 4 years agotherealhoopsMember
The longer this goes on the more poo will hit the fan when it comes out. Your friend shouldn’t have told you and put you in this position. I’d dump her before she starts on your other half.
Tell her that if she doesn’t come clean then you will. Naturally she won’t, so it’s up to you to tell your boss as a true friend should. Also, being friends with the boss will mean you’ll still have a job at the end.

She didn’t tell me. But she also hasn’t been very careful to hide her phone when I’ve been close to her and she’s been sending those texts!
I don’t think either of them know I know, they certainly haven’t said anything to me if they did clock me when they were in their “compromising position”.
So maybe, if nobody knows I know, it might be best I keep my gob shut and allow what will be to be. I guess one of them might grow a conscience/get worried about being caught and end it before it comes out – I doubt it, but they might!Posted 4 years agobearnecessitiesSubscriber
just rat them out via a third party
If you go for this option, commission wisely.

Last week I found out that my best mate at work is having an affair with my boss’s husband.
I get on really well with my boss and have a lot of respect for her. I feel really awful for her, and I know that if/when it comes out, she will ask if I knew, because I am good friends with the other woman.
I’m thinking, I should keep quiet and deny all knowledge if asked – makes me feel a bit bad, but it’s none of my business really, I think my friend is playing with fire, and it’s going to be a disaster if it comes out, but it’s not for me to interfere.
O wise ones of STW – is this the correct course of action?Posted 4 years agoplyphonMember
Just chiming in to make aware of this fantastic pun that everyone seems to have missed:

In the context of giving your boss a rodgering I found that certified hilarious.
Moving on. I’d want to be told if someone knew my partner was being unfaithful – as would you I imagine.
If you like your boss then it’s clear who the better human being is between your boss and “your m8”
My advice? Hack the phone, steal the noodz, email to boss, enjoy lulzPosted 4 years agotheflatboyMember
When you say it’s likely that you’ll be asked if you knew anything about it, do you think that’s definitely the case? i.e. is the company large enough / the connection to your boss remote enough that you may actually be able to keep a low profile and it never be known that you knew?Posted 4 years ago

Nope, I work in a small team, so the connection is not remote, we are a fairly close knit lot. Too close in some cases, clearly! :-O There are some other connections as well that complicate this further but I don’t want to divulge too many details about those involved, this is a public forum after all….but if those involved don’t know I know, then that makes it much easier to keep schtum.
I did wonder who would pick up on the box first 😉Posted 4 years ago
