spman: What I don't get is how people can have affairs and not have it eat away at their conscience? Even the mere thought of sleeping with someone else and the likely end of the relationship with my (soon to be) wife that would come about as a result, is enough to scare me away from ever even considering it. I guess if you don't care about that, or are really that confident that you don't think you'll get caught, you can make it work, but having something like that gnawing at me would give me an anxiety disorder.


The real question is why did you bring up the topic of affairs when the article only mentioned sex? Something bothering you?

Can we just retire that tired old euphemism, "sleeping with," and just say "having sex with?"

As a chef, you have to be careful in sleeping with staff. And as a manager, I really have to be careful with sleeping with staff. That being said, waitresses and bartenders are who I mix with. You spend a fair amount of your time, in a team environment, you get to know them well, and you hang out socially. And yes, there's often booze involved, so hooking up happens. You spend 12-14 hours a day with folks, yes, you develop some attachments with them.

a walk in is a fridge.

That sentence makes sense to anyone who has had exposure to the food industry.

/no charge for that one

So, throw me in the just over half category. Because sleeping with a co-worker is awesome when the coworker is hot, can't get pregnant, and wants no-one else to know about it so work isn't weird.

spman: ...(soon to be) wife

This is the part that explains your whole paragraph. Naïveté.

Any study or discussion about the frequency of farking coworkers, and the standards and boundaries thereof, needs to distinguish between desk jobs and restaurant/retail. While it goes on in both, the difference in magnitude and attitude is night and day.

So it's not conscience but cowardice that keeps you faithful?

I never cheated on an SO because honor.

/had one who didn't mind threesomes, though


Huh? Cowardice? I would never cheat on my fiancee because I love her and would never do anything to hurt her, and the end of my current relationship would probably disrupt my mental stability. Even if I knew I could get away with it, or hell, had her permission to do it, I don't think I could.
