So four of us from our company ((ALPHA)) went to ((RESTAURANT)) for lunch today. We were all wearing shirts or sweatshirts with our company name on them, because that's what we do.
We were sitting at a table and talking when a young woman walked up to the table.
In a very friendly, perky voice she said, "You guys all work for ((ALPHA)), right?"
"Yeah," we all said, gesturing to our shirts.
"So you know ((JOHN DOE))?"
"Sure, we do."
Still perky, she said "Well, I'm ((JOHN DOE))'s wife."
We started to say hi, but she kept going.
"You should know that ((JOHN DOE)) is having an affair with ((JANE SMITH)). So that's the kind of (guy/person) you work with. Goodbye."
She walked away and out of the restaurant.
[NOTE: ((JANE SMITH)) also works at ((ALPHA)), as does ((JOHN DOE))].
[NOTE: I'm not sure if she said "guy" or "person"]
The four of us sat there, mouths gaping open in stunned silence, for a good half minute. I'm usually pretty unflappable and I was just thinking "whaaaaaaaaaaat?"
And here I thought this only happened on television shows. Wow.
Funny note: ((JOHN DOE)) almost came to ((RESTAURANT)) with us for lunch today.
