Why did you stand there and take it for an hour? The minute my boss starts giving me shit about my personal life is the minute I get my union rep on the phone. You better do it now. FYL

I don't think the boss cared about the OP's personal issues. The boss most likely only cared that the issue was being brought to work thereby decreasing productivity. If two coworkers stop working together over a personal issue I'd be upset too if I were the boss. On a side note: OP you should move past this with your coworker or find a new job b/c a scummy boyfriend (hopefully ex-boyfriend now) is not worth hurting and possibly losing your job over. Plus, you can then focus all your energy o

I'm hoping the OP is a big wuss and never spoke up as to why she stopped speaking to the coworker. Because no sane human being would expect someone to interact with someone who had slept with their boyfriend. This stuff is the reason HR was invented. Seriously. No boss can just yell at you for not socializing with a coworker after what happened.

I agree that, without more info, it would seem that its her boyfriend who is most guilty here, considering her co-worker is complaining about getting the cold shoulder (which she should still understand unless she is stupid). If her co-worker DID know that they were a couple and still slept with her boyfriend, she would not only be stupid, but a bitch as well and deserve a little more than just a cold shoulder.

If the boss knows, then you need to speak to HR about the unprofessional way your boss handled the situation. Im all for keeping your private life out of your workplace, but when your workplace shoves it's nose (or vagina) into your private life, something needs to give. I would discuss with HR the issue going on. It's obviously going to affect your "p

Yes, what #10 said, completely. There might also be long-term ramifications to her career if she doesn't get away from this maniac who clearly has it in for her. Whether or not the boss knew the whole story, this was not right. Only way it MIGHT be understandable, though still not okay, is if this is a part of the big picture of problems that the OP created at work -- and we don't know that this is the case. While, yes, we don't know the whole story, there are some things you just don'

idkweird, I couldn't have said it any better myself. OP, I hope you either explained the situation to him if he didn't know, or went straight to HR after if he did. Or punched them both in the face and walked out. You know, whatever works.
