Cheating On My Work Husband

Earlier this week I had lunch with a new friend at work.
This didn't go over well with Josh.

Josh has been with the company for 10+ years and doesn't have many friends at work, besides me. And none that he would actually go to lunch with.
I have been here 7 months and have a new friend. But then again, that's just me.

When I announced that I was having lunch with Kelly, Josh tried to act cool and then just gave up on that one.

Right after singing "Runaway Train" to himself like Michael Scott did on the "Money" episode of the office...

Josh: So where are you going?
Becky: Cheeseburger in Paradise.
Josh: Weird! Me too.

me laughing

Becky: Are you going to sit in your car with your McDonald's and just watch us from afar.
Josh: Um, yeah. You got a problem with that?
Becky: Seriously, do you want to come?
Josh: No. I have plans. With, um, my wife. We are going to Cheeseburger in Paradise.

30 minutes pass

Josh: You know, you don't know if she is your friend yet.
Becky: Who? Kelly? Yes I do. I like her. Ergo, my friend.
Josh: YOU DON'T KNOW! She could eat weird or suck on her teeth when she eats ... or I bet she smells weird!
Becky: She doesn't smell weird.
Josh: Well, you just don't know.

more time passes

Josh: (laughing) I hope Kelly turns out to be the niece of President Bush and doesn't believe in Global Warming either.

After lunch

Becky: Well that sucked. She smelled super bad, is working for the McCain campaign and made me pay for lunch.
Josh: (smiles) Yeah I bet. That should teach you for cheating on me with another co-worker.
Becky: It will never happen again. At least not this week.

Well, sounds like you learned your lesson! Funny...

Couldn't the 3 of you go to lunch. Never mind, friendships of 3 never work out.
