98.3 TRY Social Dilemma: I Asked My Coworker When She’s Due And She’s Not Pregnant


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Friday’s 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma came from Vanessa. This is a tough one.

Hi Jaime. I made a BIG mistake and I’m looking for ways to fix it and I hope you and your listeners can help. So I recently returned to the office and this was bad. I saw a coworker I haven’t seen in a year and a half and I asked her when she’s due … and she’s not pregnant. She just stood there, looking hurt and confused, and I felt awful. I guess she’s just gained weight during the pandemic and I jumped to conclusions before thinking it through. Now I don’t know what to say to her and I feel like everyone in the office thinks I’m a jerk. How can I recover from this? I hope you can give me some good advice. Thanks so much

WOW, well that is tough. We’ve all been in those situation when we speak before we think. I know I have. And it’s hard to come back from in certain situations. My best advice would be to just apologize and admit that she did a thoughtless thing and then try to move on. All we can do is ask for forgiveness.

That’s my take anyway. I’m sure you have better advice for Vanessa so let me know what you think on the TRY Facebook page.
