Empress on the Mount

Enlightened One:
I recently saw a close friend’s husband kissing another woman. The way they were going at it made it clear that wasn’t all they planned to do. Should I tell her, confront him or just forget I ever saw it?

Personally, I’d simply take out a contract on the husband and let your friend move on with her life but hey, it’s your conscience and your moral dilemma. And I care so much. Really.

I don't have a lot of close friends. Therefore, I'm pretty loyal to the ones I have. I'd lie under oath. I'd help hide a body.

And, unless I knew for certain my friend had a "see no evil" clause in her relationship with her significant other, I'd tell.

Susan said...

I'm with Toni. I'd be on the phone to my friend before he even got home. If I could figure out how to use my camera phone, I'd take a dang picture too!

Brynn Paulin said...

I'd take a picture ('cause I know how), I'd confront him and then I'd give him a short time limit to tell her himself. That's something she'd need to hear from him, not me.
I absolutely would not pretend I never saw it and I would definitely be available to hide the body or at least provide the number for a good hit man as soon as he told her.

I think I would most likely tell my friend what I saw and let her take it from there. :-)


Jaid Black said...

I'd tell the friend. And if she stayed with him I'd be even more pissed than what I already was :-P

The Empress said...

Ladies, I'm touched. All those offers to help hide the body are fantastic. And much appreciated. I know whom to contact the next time someone gets uppity and evidence needs to vanish.

Susan, I'm with you about camera phones. Actually, about mobile phones in general. They do things when they feel like it and generally badly at that.

Gosh, I didn't realise phones were male.

Jaid Black said...

I don't care how "nice" the cell phone allegedly is... I haven't seen one yet that can produce consistent quality shots. Mebbe one day.

I've actually discussed this with my friends - and most of them have told me they would want me to tell them. So I would.

I have told them, however,that I would't want to know.
