Anybody who gives a flying rat’s ass on here probably already knows and is sick to death of my unimportant little life’s drama. Going through a divorce, getting over a subsequent relationship, challenges at work, blah…blah, etc… etc… ad nauseum.
Fucking kill me just to shut me up!
So my ex-girlfiend (amicable breakup) tells me this afternoon that her boss approached her with the knowledge that she and I recently broke up.
A little background:
I know her boss and he knows me from the gym. We’re not friends but there is no animosity between us (that’s changed now). We don’t chat on any level beyond a simple “hello” and “how you doin’?” However, he is friends with my ex-wife as they also know one another from the gym. The reason for our divorce is likely not a secret to him as my ex-wife’s boyfriend also belongs to the same gym. Yes, it’s very incestuous and I’m really getting sick of the place. I didn’t want to be the one to leave the gym because of a sense of pride and a big “fuck you” to her and the boyfriend but I may need to review that resolve. That’s a story for another day.
Anyway, the ex-girlfriend’s boss has seen me and my ex-girlfriend together because by sheer dumb luck she started working with him in January of this year. We didn’t realize this was the case until after she took the job.
Bottom line, after we all figured it out, the guy kept acting like he and I are some kind of friends around my ex-girlfriend. Always coming to her with a nod and wink as if he’s in on some kind of cosmic secret. Always letting her know when he’s seen me at the gym. Always making sure to mention to her that he and my ex-wife are gym buddies.
Cut to today, he drops by my ex-g’s office to mention that he knows she and I are no longer together. The only person who could have possibly given him that news is my ex-w. The only reason she knows is because my kids, who’ve become attached to my ex-g got the news from me two weeks ago that they would probably not see my ex-g very much any more. My kids were old enough to know because they were old enough to ask and worry about why she wasn’t around any more.
So how come this putz doesn’t know that it’s wrong to talk about people’s personal lives in a business situation? Particularly when the person in question is an employee.
And why doesn’t my ex-w know that it’s wrong to tell her buddies my business?
Particularly since we’ve already been through a very unpleasant experience where one of her other so called friends figured out that I was managing his technical staff on one of my projects and started to talk complete and utter smack to my director about me.
Why don’t otherwise grown up and seemingly intelligent people know that some things should just be kept on the d.l.?
I feel like cracking heads. Fuckers.
