A Man’s Wife Was Being Threatened Online By One Of Her Colleagues, But The Man Was Ready To Do Whatever It Took To Keep Her Safe

A man recently asked for advice about how to handle his wife’s hostile colleague. The colleague seemed to have repeatedly threatened his wife, but was the man right to consider exposing the colleague’s actions? Here’s what he had to say:

“According to my wife, one of her co-workers has become increasingly hostile and difficult to work with recently,” the man explained. It was difficult for him to know that his wife was having to put up with her colleague’s abuse.

The man revealed that the co-worker was known to be a bad influence within his wife’s workplace. The colleague’s attitude was only part of the problem. She was also underperforming and not coming into work. She was on very thin ice with HR.

According to the man, the HR department at his wife’s workplace was very close to firing the co-worker. However, the department was concerned that they didn’t have enough dirt on the colleague to fire her. They decided to play it safe and let her stay—unless she did something really crazy.

Although the man’s wife and her co-worker had once been friends, something had damaged their relationship. The man’s wife claimed not to know what had happened between them, but the colleague was clearly upset. She removed the wife, as well as their manager, from her social media. However, the colleague slipped up.

When the man realized that he still had access to the co-worker’s Facebook account, he decided to investigate her a little further. What he uncovered shocked him—and left him seriously worried about his wife’s safety.

“Over the past few weeks, she has started posting increasingly hostile and violent things on Facebook that seem directed at my wife,” the man explained. “The one that has me shaking mad and considering reporting her: ‘I will NOT kill a co-worker today… Okay, maybe just one.’”

The Man Knew The Importance Of Mercy

The man knew that he should cut the co-worker some slack. After all, his wife’s colleague had only been letting off steam online. But he couldn’t help but wonder if a tip-off to HR would help to protect his wife.

The man didn’t want his wife to get sent to HR as well, so he decided that if he shared the posts, he would do so anonymously. His wife had joked about contacting HR, and he wasn’t sure if she was suggesting that he should.

Although the man’s wife disliked her colleague, she didn’t want to get involved in the HR situation. She hated confrontations and knew that any HR situation was likely to escalate. But if they did nothing, there might still be a confrontation, and it could be a violent one.

Should the Man Have Contacted HR?

The man was torn between letting the matter drop and handing over the incriminating screenshots to HR. He wanted to demonstrate mercy to his wife’s colleague, but he was also worried about his wife’s safety. How could he best protect her?

People Were Divided

One person suggested that the man’s wife could look after herself in her own workplace: “Your wife is an adult and needs to handle this herself. You don’t work there, so you have no business contacting HR.”

However, another user argued that the husband needed to do whatever it took to protect his wife. They said, “Not everyone is capable of handling situations like this on their own. People with anxiety, abuse victims, and a ton of other people have massive issues talking up for themselves or reporting problems.”
