You are out to dinner at a nice restaurant with your significant other, and things are getting pretty cozy when all of a sudden you see a man that looks very familiar come in with a gorgeous blond. You try to refocus on the conversation and try to get those romantic stirrings moving again by looking at your date and saying something flirty but your eyes keep wandering to the couple.
Itâ€™s your best friendâ€™s husband and he is obviously not at a business dinner.
How would you handle it?
Those on the â€œI wouldnâ€™t tellâ€ side believe that staying out of it will stave off hurt and betrayal. They donâ€™t want to tell and risk being the one to cause devastation in the life of someone they love. The problem is that when she hears from someone else and finds out you knew all along you can probably kiss that friendship goodbye.
Those on the â€œI would be on the cell phone before the salad cameâ€ side feel that itâ€™s better to hear it from a friend than find out later. This is a crap-shoot, too. You friend may allow her love to convince her that you are lying because you donâ€™t like him.
Personally? Iâ€™d be on the phone before they had a chance to open the menu. I would probably blurt something out like, â€œHey, your husband is at this restaurant with a woman â€“ is it legit?â€
I would then proceed to walk over to the table and create a scene he would not soon forget, ending in me being banned from the restaurant. Please note that I have never been praised for my extreme amount of tact or self-restraint.
How would you handle it and why?
