A lady I work with has always been sickly. She is constantly calling out sick, leaving early and all that. Her ailments have progressed a few times to where she had to be hospitalized. Up to this point, I always felt that she and I were close. Thus, when she was sick, I would go the extra mile to help her get her work done.
This last time that she got sick, she had to be hospitalized again. Whenever this had happened before, I had thought about visiting her, but never did. This time, I figured I would, as I was told that she was very sick. I wanted to be the good co-worker. I felt that we had become close enough friends, so I wanted to surprise her and hopefully cheer her up.
I went to the hospital and asked for her room number. I walked into her room only to find the married Director of the company sitting there holding hands with her. As I later learned, they were having a relationship together. The look on their faces was priceless when I walked in.
I’m still deciding how I feel about all of this.
