Today, my co-worker told me that my other co-worker is in the process of getting a divorce. I got really excited because his marriage is very toxic. He overheard me say, "He deserves that divorce!" I meant it in a good way, but I don't think he took it that way. FML

I'm with you, #1. Maybe he'll assume you're lying but that's on him. It's not your responsibility to make that decision for him. Stand by your word and maintain your integrity. Sure, hindsight tells us that it would have been best to say nothing at all, but it's too late for that now.

Or just consider it a lesson learned. It's never a good idea to voice your opinion over personal matters, especially things like someone's marriage. Professionalism is important at work, and you'll be preventing yourself from getting into sticky situations like this.

Agreed #33. OP should have showed some restraint and professionalism. And maybe some tact as well. The marriage may be toxic, but that doesn't me the co-worker isn't upset about it and might not want to hear "congratulations" as a response.

sometimes its a subconcious thing and you have no restraint over your words and you say the first thing thats on your mind...of course regretting it later

I'm sure he's just very stressed and in a bad mood. That's a very personal thing to go though and I bet he doesn't appreciate people around work talking about it, even though you meant well.

i can think of plently of ways i could have worded that better, but i myself have done similar and am not critisising because it happens to the best of us, its too late now i guess. atleast with technology i have time to think about my typed response before i send it
