    • ohhhhWOW! Well of course it would be a shocker to me, but if that person and I had a relationship on the job where we talk and share on a regular basis, I’d have to ask them if they were ok, and yes I’d ask what happened, but as I am  very obsevant I’d pay attention to how they answered the question if there is some tention there I’d fear there may have been a fight or some form of abuse and ask them if they are safe and ok at home, if they stick to their story then I’d have to go with it, but I’d assure them that if they needed help or someone to talk to I’d be there for them.

    • I did a fake black eye for April Fool’s day.  I had several funny stories made up about it.

      Wow!  I was not prepared for the various reactions.  Two people who are fairly close to me were so shocked/surprised they didn’t know what to say so didn’t say anything.

      Another man who almost never talks to co-workers did a double take and asked if I was ok.

      One young co-worker asked another young co-worker if they should go beat up my husband.  Good to know they’ve got my back.  Wow.

      Another young co-worker didn’t say anything till I washed the makeup off.  He said he just figured, knowing me, that I’d been dancing or flirting with someone else’s husband.

      My asst mangr about had a stroke and demanded to know what happened.  My best friend at work just said, “Now what did you do?”

      Everyone else completely ignored the situation.

      It was interesting.

    • You‘re right Nita, it was too close to the bone for some.  I thought is was going to be funny, but it turned out more thought provoking than anything.
