Thursday and Friday of the week past, I was required to work out of state escorting some house trailers. To kind of keep ourselves occupied, the other driver and myself were just chit chatting on the CB (the other driver was a male, we will call him Joe).
The other driver had been making verbal, sexual advances towards me all day long and each time I would just defend myself and tell him to shut up.
Well as the day went on, we were on our way back into the state on Friday evening and he starts telling me about his bad marriage, how he wants to be happy either with or without his wife, he's accussed of having a girlfriend (the way he spoke to me is it any wonder the wife would think such...),she's no good for him, his kids are raised so why stay, he wants a divorce, etc, etc, etc.
So I just told him that you "The only person you can make happy in this world is yourself, then others around you are going to be happy". By saying such I don't feel I was taking sides on either side of the issue, because I know each story has two sides and I don't want to be in the middle. Well Joe repeats what I told him to the boss, now the female owner/boss is upset because I told him to get a divorce.
When I saw Joe again I asked him about it and he said that when I said happy, happy=divorce so he thought that's what I was telling him. I guess what I was trying to imple is that even if he stays married, he can still attempt to be happy. He works days, she works nights, so he's got no night time companion is what I gathered of the story.
Not sure how to handle this situation as I usually am very verbal about my own feelings, but try to stay out of the personal lifes of others. I know the subject will be brought up again, he calls me daily to see what I am doing, if I want to go get a burger, etc, etc, etc. I tell him no because he would look at that as a date, but then he's offended. He's a big man, over 500 lbs, so he tries to play on my emotions using his size as a factor.
Someone please give input here,
