H's work Christmas party was tonight. (H is working, so the worst thing he did was eat a bunch of sugary treats.) His boss had planned to go home, but he lives an hour away. He had a couple of drinks and called his wife and asked her if it was OK if he stayed with another manager (also a male) tonight and she agreed.
This makes me SO uneasy!! I mean, isn't this how a lot of stories here start?? And he confided to H a month or so ago that he was having marital trouble. I don't know, he didn't start out planning to stay in town for the night and seemed to change his mind after a couple of people showed up to the party. They headed out for more drinks.
I told H I felt like this was a huge mistake, that it was dangerous, and that I hope his boss doesn't do anything that will send his life down the tubes.
It sucks to see people doing stuff like that.
