When work and romance clash

All Woman

Some have said that many times you can know when there is a problem at home between a woman and her spouse, because she lashes out at everyone, and since we spend the majority of our time at work, that is her venting ground.

How true is this? Very, according to the women below.


It's true. When I was going through hell with my ex-husband, I would bite at anyone who crossed my path. I remember my supervisor trying me one Monday morning after 7:00 in the morning when work started at 8:00. I told the woman off. I think women are insensitive to other women. I'd told the woman months before that my marriage was having some challenges so she knew what I was dealing with, yet she still would push my buttons.


Yes, all women do it. When I am having an off day in my relationship I don't want anybody to talk to me. And since I spend much time at work, it comes out in my attitude and in how I communicate.


I try not to, but it's hard when you just had an argument with your man and then have to walk into the office. It is hard to pretend like you're not going through something when you are. Other people should understand and give us space to revive.


It is impossible to go to work and put on a bright smile when you're going through a divorce or you just found out your husband of almost 20 years got a 17 year old pregnant, or that your son is smoking weed. If your home is upside down, no way can you pretend like you're good when you're livid.


Yes I do because I spend most of my time at work so I have no other place to release my stress.
