Q: A woman in my work carpool keeps boasting about her kids, her husband, even her salary. It makes everyone uncomfortable. Should I put up with it or say something before she gets into trouble?
A: If it’s constant, speak to her privately. In a caring way, say, “You’ve got a lot to be proud of, but talking about the good things in your life so much makes others uneasy, and discussing your salary openly could lead to problems at the office.” acquaintance
