Coworker crosses the line at baby shower, AITA for kicking her out?

A man invites his female coworker to his wife's baby shower but things quickly turn sour when she starts making inappropriate jokes. Despite warning her previously about keeping things professional, the coworker persists and even suggests she'll be the baby's second mom. The man takes her aside and tells her to apologize or leave, and she chooses to leave. Coworkers agree she was acting inappropriately, but some think he should have let her down easier. Is he the a**hole for kicking her out?

🤔 Coworker called herself my 'work wife', kicked out of baby shower. #awkward

When does a joke cross the line? A man's coworker calls herself his 'work wife' and makes inappropriate jokes at his wife's baby shower. After confronting her, he's left wondering if he was too harsh in kicking her out. In a tight-knit workspace, how do you maintain professionalism while still having fun? This man thought he had made it clear that he wasn't comfortable with the 'work wife' label, but his coworker continued to make jokes that made him and his wife uncomfortable. Was he justified in asking her to leave or should he have handled it differently? The situation raises questions about boundaries in the workplace and how to handle inappropriate behavior from colleagues. Read on for reactions and comments from others on the situation.
