Hi,

Yes, I am going to write this, but I imagine no one will give me the answer I want to hear, as it won't be the most prudent.

I was seeing a lady who moved overseas for work (in the industry as well). Yes, I was making plans to move there myself at a latter date, but nothing confirmed.

The story gets silly now, but the bottom line is, she was seeing people from the go, all the time showing affection to me over skype. Now, do I give her what for, or do I think, even though she is lower on the chain of command, just take it and utilize the contacts that she has made in this new country?

I never seem to be in a position to dish it out.

I'm sure this is relevant to business practice.

Thanks

Thanks, that's a given.

I meant, do I give her a piece of my mind, or maintain some civility to utilize her contacts.

Give her a piece of your mind and then utilize her contacts.

The 'piece of your mind' ain't really worth it, just crack-on mate.

A bit of distance time-wise will have everything work itself out.

Burning bridges oft destroy the town.
Keep it Civil; keep it clean, and when all else fails, Bushmills can be your queen
