My Boss is Too Flirty

Dear Experts, My boss is way too friendly with another co-worker in the office. Their verbal interactions show an obvious attraction for one another. To me, it comes off as annoying and distracting. The worst part is, my boss is married and has children. Is there anything I can do? Should I ignore it? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#422 Can't control them. Set boundaries for appropriate behavior around you though. Act professional & don't join the banter. (@DawnBugni) Q#422 You could say something to co-worker, but what's to gain professionally? Karma will take care of it. (@jtodonnell) Q#422 Ignore it. It may be annoying, but it's not your problem. Only say something if it directly impacts your work. (@gradversity) Q#422 If affecting your job, see HR but understand you'll make waves. If not, block it out. Moving your office may help. (@EmilyBennington) Q#422 Best to ignore. If interferes w/work, have concrete examples for HR. Style w/person doesn't mean action. (@juliaerickson) Q#422 If impacting work-behavior might be sexual harassment. Speak confidentially w/HR if you can't ignore! (@marysevinsky) Q#422 You cannot control behaviors of others despite how annoying u find them. Focus on ur job not the business of others.
