Dear Fonseca

I manage a cell phone store in the area. A woman came in the other day and asked me for help in trying to see if her husband is cheating. My blood started to boil as she told me why she thinks he is being unfaithful. It's against company policy for me to look at his records. I also believe women should stand up and protect and fight for one another. I could get fired if I check the cheater's phone records. I'm torn about what to do because there are children involved. Your thoughts? Should I follow my head or my heart?
