Wasn't there someone on here a few years ago who said that she didn't want her DH talking to other women at work, beyond the bare minimal needs of the job?
The girlfriend of one of our contracted employees rang my BIL yesterday. She asked nicely what job he was doing and when BIL told her, she proceeded to verbally abuse him for letting her boyfriend do a job which involved working with other women. BIL told her firmly (probably, I admit probably not very politely), that if he ever received another phone call like that from her she wouldn't have to worry, he wouldn't have any type of job. He also explained this to the employee. Employee asked that BIL tell her if she rang again that he was doing his main job which does not involve interacting with any women.
Apparently, she used to wait outside the gate for him to get off work each day so he didn't talk to female coworkers.
Sounds like someone I used to work with, Bill. This was in the days before cell phones. His wife would drop him at the train station, and when he reached his stop, he would RUN to the pay phone to call his wife to let her know that he arrived. Then he would RUN to the office (which was only about 1/2 a block away) and get right on the phone to let her know he was there. He would then call her maybe 15 or 20 times a day. (He was reprimanded over this, so he started sneaking around to other people's desks or the pay phones in the lobby, because his wife not ALLOW him to go all day without calling her).
One day a coworker was retiring, and we were all going out to a local bar to say goodbye. Bill called his wife to see if he could go. He passed the phone to me. Mind you, I had NEVER talked to this woman before. She asked me where we going, how many people would be going, would there be drinking there? Seeing as it was in a bar, well, probably. Then she asked if there would be women there. Seeing as I was going, and the person retiring was a woman, and there were several other women in the office, yup, I suppose. Then, NO NO NO, Bill was not ALLOWED to go.
Some guys in the office gave him a hard time, so he came up with a plan. He RAN to the bar, downed a soft drink, said "goodbye" to the retiree and RAN to the subway. He told his wife the subway had delays. He was very proud of his deviousness.
