You don't have to like your coworkers, but you do have to tolerate them. However, consider yourself lucky that you don't have to tolerate one woman's coworker, who insisted that everyone in the office refer to her boyfriend as her "master." Really.


The strange story was submitted by an anonymous woman to the "Ask a Boss" advice column in New York Magazine.

The weirdness started when "Sally" brought her boyfriend "Peter" to an office Christmas party in 2015 (names have been changed).
