Let's say.......you're a member of a golf club that is a very respectful place, high moral standard, etc. You overhear a secretary telling another employee that she is 'sorta seeing' the pro, who is also her boss, but they are having to keep it quite because most members and employees think he is married. He is but is separated. Almost 100% of the employees and a large portion of the members do not like this domineering woman. She told one employee who probably told another, etc. How long before members start talking? This has the potential of becoming toxic. She is an alcoholic and has 2 or 3 failed marriages. She has worked there a few years but he has been there a very long time. Should the board of directors hear this it could cost him his job. Now let's say you've known him for about as long or longer. Do you go to him in private and tell him what you've heard? Or do you stay out of it and let the chips fall where they may?

Mind your own business on this one. I am sure there are many ifs, ands and buts. You don't want to get involved and open a can of worms. If drama is your thing then by all means become the moral enforcer, but I would stay out of it. Life is for learning then let them learn.

Thank you. I appreciate your wise advice and will heed it. I don't like drama.

Its not respectful and company with morals if the married boss is having relations with his staff never give your staff personal phone number rumors can be as damaging as the act hopefully you nip it and put your staff in place and your spouse don't hear

alcoholic ? And you knowing she has several failed marriages ..And what part of your job assignment is that ?? You must not have friendship w staff once you closed the golf club. As long as you do not have relationship outside your work hours .do not give them your personal number or have you texted or sent pictures ?.do not invite them to your home . if one has nothing to lose one is more apdt to take.. seems like your good person bid dog but starting to catch fleas. I hope you excel in all u do and just pray about it

I am not employee or staff I am a member. The reason I know about her marriages, etc is because she tells anyone who will listen. The other I have known for many many years as he worked with a family member for many years. I do not invite any of the staff to my home. Honestly, I do not believe anything is happening and really don't care. But if this is just wishful wanting on her behalf then I feel for the other party who may suffer the consequences of her comments.
