My boss' wife is on my case

Nairobi - There is nothing I dislike more than people who are inconsequential to a situation coming in and ruining it for the parties that are involved. Wives and girlfriends!
Being employed by a man that has an insecure wife is the worst thing that can ever happen to a female employee or partner. You are just there trying to mind your business. You are not interested with the man. You have given no indication that that is where you are headed but as much as you go out of your way to stay out of their personal business, she makes your life a living hell. There is the one that calls to yell at you or just stays silent then hangs up. Then there is the one that stalks you to see whether you will be seen with the said man. If he goes away, you are in trouble because now she is at your house giving your neighbors a wrong impression of you. Or the one that goes out of her way to be in your face in public and cause scenes. Worst case scenario-she gets violent.
Some women go through all that crap yet they are just trying to pay their bills on time and not be unemployed. But it gets so hard not to put your fist in some woman’s face because you are trying to respect your boss.
Then, I dislike it even more when the man does nothing. It is your wife that is your problem unless you are giving me significant pay raise to handle that inconvenience. Your drama with your wife should not interrupt another woman’s life and make it difficult for her to work. It is in the Employment and Labor Law Act. Put your wife on a leash because if she gets the wrong one you will be dealing with the worst damage you have ever imagined in your life.
If you are a lady and you find yourself in such a situation, start looking for another job. No matter how much that man tells you he will take care of it, it will not get better. If he also comes in your defense, it will get worse. Don’t wait for her to make you get fired. Don’t wait for her to turn nasty. First signs -look for another job so that you do not end up in a situation where you have no idea what to do or where to turn. Don’t just quit without a plan. Have a plan and then make your move.
If you are a wife or girlfriend with such behaviors, please, stop taking the bread out of other women’s mouths. You have no idea what she is dealing with and you will not fight with every woman your man chooses to run with. She might not even be the one you are looking at. If you have an honorable man one of his rules will probably be, ‘Do not shit where you eat.’ His employee is not where you will find the other woman.
Second, you might get yourself in a situation with a desperate woman. I once saw a movie where the woman thought she was smart by chasing her husband’s secretary. She starts stalking her and thinks she can create a scene and slap the other lady around without the other woman reacting. That lady was tired and the boss’s wife had chosen a bare street for her little drama. The secretary got in her car and ran the woman over.
Do not make another woman’s life difficult because when she decides to turn on you, you will not like it at all. Some women do not care and Kenyan woman can be really brutal. The economy is harsh. I might have a child. I am trying to pay my rent and you want to come and stress me out because you have no bigger problems to deal with? A lady will hire thugs to rough you around so that you can stop being in her business. Do not mess with a woman’s source of income. Just because your husband sorts you out does not mean she has the same. Don’t let her get desperate.
