“The Proposal.” “Two Weeks Notice.” “The Office.” “500 Days of Summer.” What do these things have in common?

They all taught us to believe in the power of the good old-fashioned office romance. 

So what happens when the workplace rom-com turns into an IRL horror movie? Just ask HR expert Kim Rohrer, as she and Hebba unleash some absolutely WILD horror stories submitted by viewers about the office love story gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Because sometimes, Jim and Pam don’t get together and everyone doesn’t live happily ever after.

These are those stories.

If you thought your Valentine’s Day was bad, hold on tight, because this episode is here to assure you, it could always be worse.
