A man’s wife’s hostile co-worker had posted aggressive social media posts about his wife, so he considered reporting it to HR. Here is what the man had to say:
His Wife Had A Difficult Co-Worker
The man said, “According to my wife, one of her co-workers has become increasingly hostile and difficult to work with recently.”
She Was Facing Issues At Work
The co-worker’s performance and attendance had been under HR scrutiny, hinting at a potential termination. The reason seemed tied to some recent actions that could lead to liability issues upon termination.
The Co-Worker Removed Them From Social Media
In their office setting, his wife and the co-worker shared close quarters with their manager. Formerly they were all friends, but something had occurred recently, unknown to his wife, causing the co-worker to disconnect themselves from his wife and even the manager on social media.
But Forgot To Remove The Man
Strangely, the co-worker forgot to remove the man on social media, which gave him an interesting window into their world.
He Saw The Posts
Lately, the co-worker’s Facebook posts took on a progressively aggressive and even violent tone, seemingly aimed at his wife. One of these posts said, “I will NOT kill a co-worker today. I will NOT kill a co-worker today… okay, maybe just one.”
He Considered His Values
The man said, “Now I believe strongly in the Golden Rule and Karma, and I just heard a really good sermon yesterday about showing mercy and grace to others, especially those who seem to need it most, so I totally feel like I’m in the wrong for considering this report.”
He Thought Through His Options
Despite feeling torn, the man couldn’t shake off the idea of reporting this behavior. Initially, they thought of doing so anonymously, considering their wife’s reluctance to involve herself in confrontations.
His Wife Seemed To Be Hinting
The man said, “However, she also happened to leave the HR email out in a very conspicuous place for me to find it this morning, in addition to jokingly saying it out loud last night when I brought this stuff to her attention.”
Was The Man In The Wrong?
The man was left questioning whether he would be in the wrong for reporting the co-worker’s inappropriate and aggressive messages on social media and turned to the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, “Because your wife is an adult and needs to handle this herself. You don’t work there, so you have no business contacting HR.”
Another Person Said
“Don’t stick yourself in the middle of a situation you have no business being in. This is not your job to report, and you could damage your wife’s reputation at work. No matter the “jokes” or leaving the email out, your wife has told you not to contact HR. Express your concerns again and urge her to contact HR, but leave yourself out of it.”
