I run a fairly successful startup. We have 14 employees and our numbers are looking good. However, ever since my co-founder got married a few months ago, his wife started to get more and more involved in the business. No one invited her and yet, she comes to the office, has lunch with us, and lately I caught her several times telling people what to do, once even picking up a call from a client!
This makes me unconfortable, because I tend not to agree with her vision (she’s too agressive, and frankly knows nothing of our business), and every time I discussed it with my partner, he says he’ll talk to her. Every time we get some calm for a couple of days, and then she’s back.
Last Friday things went too far, when she called me an idiot and said I am not qualified to manage things in front of the entire staff. I laughed and turned the whole thing into a joke, but it’s getting quite annoying. And what’s worse, I can tell my co-founder is annoyed at her, but can’t really manage the situation. He’s too much of a nice guy.
