10 signs your boss is having an affair with your colleague

It could happen in any office in Manchester. Your boss starts making unusual comments about your colleague, they’re seen having lunch together in the city centre, and suddenly it’s common knowledge they’re having an affair, and you’re stuck in the middle of it. You know both spouses, and they find out you know, and you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place.

If you think your colleague might be having an affair with the boss, it’s rarely as obvious to spot as finding the two of them holding hands on the roof of the office, gazing out over Manchester is it?

Here are 10 signs to watch out for, that might show something is going on:

  1. Your boss starts talking about new interests he’s developed, and places he’s been. He might mention this new restaurant in Manchester he’s tried, and funnily enough, it turns out that your colleague has been there too. You didn’t even know they both liked exotic food!

  2. Your colleague comes into work one day looking completely different, new hair, new clothes, new aftershave or perfume. Wow, they’re clearly making an effort. Apparently your boss notices too, and it seems they’ve got a nicer suit on as well.

  3. Every evening, you know exactly when either of them are leaving the office, because they make a point to announce it to everyone. Your boss seems to be telling everyone that they’ll be getting the train home from Manchester Piccadilly, whilst your colleague seems to keep informing you that they’re getting a later train from Manchester Victoria. Really, they’re just trying to cover things up!

  4. It might seem like it’s your lucky day, when your boss is unusually nice, and sending you home from work early because you’ve done a great job. But yet, your colleague is staying late to work overtime, and your boss if sticking around too. When you come in the next morning, it doesn’t look much work has been done. That’s a bit strange isn’t it?

  5. When you ask either of them about the other, there’s some strange behaviour going on. They get shy, defensive, overly friendly, or overly harsh. It might be like they’re avoiding each other in the office.

  6. They both start to have some strange phone behaviour. It might not be as obvious as them both being on the phone at the same time, but your colleague might be hiding their phone more often, giggling and smiling at something on there, or listening to their voicemails in private, when they never used to.

  7. Neither of them seem to want to talk about their lives outside work, or their spouses. They get defensive or annoyed – a sure sign of guilt.

  8. There’s a sudden interest in taking business trips, or urgent meetings come up on the other side of Manchester they both need to attend. It looks like there’s lots of new client business expenses at Manchester bars and restaurants too.

  9. One of them comes into the office wearing the same clothes as yesterday. That’s unusual isn’t it?

  10. They keep being found in the same places together in the office. And if they’re in the photocopying room together – this being the boss that doesn’t know how to use the printer – well, you know there’s definitely something going on!

The death of mlik delivery

There was a time when the sight of your local milkman was a common thing to see on the streets Manchester, even if you weren’t up at the crack of dawn. The jingling milkman’s van cruising down the road, the smell of fresh milk on the door step, and that simple glass bottle, just waiting for the foil to be pealed back.

With the rise of global supermarkets and the multiplication of local convenience stores on seemingly every major street corner in Manchester, it’s increasingly difficult to find a milkman who’ll have fresh milk delivered to your door before 6.30am.

But that doesn’t mean that milk delivery is dead. Far from it. Milk delivery is still an extremely important and valuable service for many offices in central Manchester.

Because for most office workers, having fresh, in-date milk in the fridge is not just a benefit. It’s a necessity. It’s a right. That cup of the tea in the morning is like an elixir of life for staff, without which productivity would be non existent.

Having milk delivered to your office means you’ll always have milk in the fridge for whenever your office needs it. It means you won’t have to rely on a staff member making sure the fridge is stocked up.

It also means your staff can stay focused on the task at hand, and don’t need to get distracted by leaving the office to go and pick up milk. With milk delivered to your office, you can save time and hassle for your team, as they don’t have to go out and battle the Manchester weather, before hauling back pints of milk to the office every day. There’s nothing worse than the office being distracted by an argument about who’s turn it is to go and get milk, and disrupting everyone’s work flow.

There’s also no need to mess around with petty cash either, because an office milk delivery means just one simple monthly invoice. And you can always guarantee you’ll get just the type milk you want to. If you’ve got someone visiting your office from outside of Manchester, they might not be used to the traditional Northern cuppa, and may prefer soya or almond milk. Does you local convenience shop stock these?

Having milk delivered to your office is the simplest and easiest option to make sure your work fridge always has milk in it, and it saves time, hassle and money too. And of course, it also makes sure the Manchester milk delivery van isn’t a relic of the past!
