Office romance is the stuff of romance novels and steamy late night Cinemax movies. There is no doubt that boring times in an office can make for some super exciting moments in private, but for one high school principal and school secretary in Arizona, the office romance got a little too public.
The two were caught on camera by a student with their tongues down
each other's throats and their hands all over each other's bodies. Yuck,
yuck, and YUCK. Discounting all of the other parts of this scandal
(school hours, being caught by a student, on school grounds, both
married to other people), the craziest part of this story is how easy it
would have been for this to NOT happen.
Memo to office lovers: If you're having an affair, whether married or not, take it away from where you work. Isn't that a bit like taking a big bowel movement next to your plate of macaroni and cheese? It looks a little less appetizing now, doesn't it?
In all seriousness the biggest problem here isn't even the most controversial parts. It's the stupidity of it all. All these two had to do to NOT become a national sex scandal is to take it off school grounds.
When office lovers get caught, it's their own darn fault.
My husband once supervised a man and a woman at his work whom he suspected might be having a fling. But it wasn't until they announced their engagement that anyone knew.
It isn't that couples shouldn't have an office romance if they want to. Consenting adults SHOULD do whatever they wish to do. But smart people save their office for flirtation and sexy glances only and all the hands-on stuff for elsewhere. It's just good office romance sense.
Meanwhile this couple is out of work and probably in a heap of trouble with their spouses as well, all because they couldn't keep it in their pants during school hours on school grounds.
They deserve to lose their jobs for that alone. Good things come to those who wait, right?
Have you ever had an office romance?
