I am a Middle aged man who takes my young (13) Daughter every week to a horse riding school, She is a novice and over the last 6 months I have become very happy with her progress. At Easter I decided to get the instructor a younger female to me, guess (30) a present, she spends alot of time with my daughter and very good to her and shes very pleasant. I said to my daughter what I was going to do and she said buy all the workers some chocolates not just her ! I said good idea.
The day came and the regular instructor wasnt there a day off, Not a problem ! I gave the crowd of workers in the stables them, at the start of the class, I noticed later they starting eating them on there break. I popped back and said " got them for you all but please save the instructor some", they said thanks and they would!
We missed a week and went back today, the class was great and at the very end I said to the instructor did you get a box of chocolates from us for Easter? She smiled and said she sleeps on site on her work days, And the last time I was there (other staff )t had put our chocolates on her bed in a shape of a love heart , taken a mobile picture and sent it to her!!! Well I was lost for words and i simply said glad you got them and see you next week. Well I am in my late fortys separated from my long term wife for two years.
Now my question have i given her the wrong impression about me and I understand the other staffs actions are bad !!, and its going to be arkward from now on. The big question is why did she tell me ??
I feel a fool what can i say
