My co-worker and my boss have become very friendly over the past 6 months. A little too friendly if you ask me. They are both recently divorced and have bonded over their shared experiences. They have lunch together a few times a week, get drinks together after work every so often and have even gone away together on a “business trip” that didn’t seem to have anything to do with work. In meetings she gets praised for work that doesn’t deserve it, and is now up for a promotion that she is not at all qualified for that I have been working towards for some time. I think their relationship has gone beyond anything professional, that has now affected me and I’m not sure what to do. Should I tell her to end her inappropriate friendship? Should I tell my boss’s boss or just stay out of it?
