What would you do?

Let’s say you are being interviewed by two lawyers for a job and the male lawyer excuses himself. When he returns his fly is open. The other lawyer, a female, says nothing as the male lawyer walks around the room.

Do you say something?
Or do you remain quiet?

Let’s say the next time you meet with this pair of attorneys for your second interview, the male attorney has a pea-sized glob of blue gel toothpaste on the corner of his mouth. The female attorney obviously sees it, yet says nothing, knowing that this attorney is about to head off to court like this.

Do you say something?

Or do your remain quiet?

The pair have been partners for a few years.

What would you do?

That's an interesting question. I guess I would say something to him. I wouldn't him to be embarassed in a room full of people. He will be told by someone. He will also come to realize that you didn't say anything.

I think the partner should say something to him. He obviously isn't very aware of the details of how he looks.

We were watching a stage show on a cruise one time and one of the male dancers had his fly open. It was so funny. At the end of the dance number, they left the stage. When he came back on for the next one, he had figured it out and zipped up. Poor guy.
