Today’s OPP come from Shannon and she joined us live:
Shannon has lived in this neighborhood for awhile and their block is very close. They have get togethers all the time and they are all about the same age. They have one neighbor where the man is a horrible guy that no one likes and the woman is very nice. So this woman called Shannon and said she was leaving her husband. So Shannon told her that she was doing the right thing and everyone hated him. Yesterday they had an Easter party and they showed up as a couple like they were staying together. She said it was weird between them like they both were embarrassed and didn’t know what to say to each other.
Slacker thinks she screwed up the whole neighborhood dynamic and should just put her house up for sale. Slacker and Steve both agree that you shouldn’t talk bad about anyone’s partner until the divorce papers are signed. They think that the relationship with that neighbor will not be the same and if other neighbors find out that she told that none of them liked the guy they won’t want to talk to her anymore either.
I think Shannon should talk to her neighbor. It can be very casual. I would just ask her how things are going and tell her whatever she chooses you will support her. I think the neighbor is more embarrassed because since she is staying with her husband she might think Shannon won’t like her anymore. I think they just need to talk it out and it will blow over soon enough.
