This would be funny, but when I get my butt hauled in and asked what is going on between BB and I, the funny stops. Cheating on a spouse is against the UCMJ and punishable by death in a time of war (I love that line ) I wouldn't be shot but it would be a tone of trouble, and just a delusional accusation can start a bunch of suspicions and gossip.
So Evil GFH, if you are reading this, thanks for ruining my TDY. I know have to be with one of my shopmates at all times as a CYA measure, or stuck in my room.
Okay I was laughing with you and enjoying this thread until this part. Now I feel sick. That is just awful. I've been the focus of misplaced jealousy, not as bad as this obviously, and it sucks. Especially when it involves a close friend. I have no advice to offer, just wanted to say that you're in my thoughts and I'm hoping that this all blows over. Please keep us posted...
Yes, this is terrible. I ran into people who were very insecure the whole time I worked with the military, though. I was always careful of my behavior around married men, since I was single up until the final 6 years I worked with the military as a civilian.
The only time it really affected my job was when we got a new sergeant in the records section. He was a nice guy and good at his job, but when he introduced his wife, who was also active duty Air Force, she gave the women in my office nasty looks and never said a word to us that wasn't absolutely required by the job. I later found out they had both been married to others when they'd met, so they'd each dumped their spouses and married each other. As a result, she was apparently afraid the same thing was going to happen to her, since he'd already proven that he wasn't to be trusted. Not that I'd be interested in a man who can be charmed away from his wife - hardly. The funny part was, she was rude to all of the women in our office, even those of us who were long married and/or not a threat in the least. I was a newlywed at the time, and I worked directly with his wife, so I made a point of talking about Mr. Sirius a lot. Eventually she thawed, and we got along fairly well until I left that job.
