To break or not to break

When it comes to telling others that he’s in AA, whether in person or through his computer, he looks to our Twelve Traditions

A few years ago, I was working in retail with a couple fellow employees when an AA member I knew happened to walk by the counter. We chatted a moment and I asked him if he was going to an upcoming AA event. He said he would attend and I thought nothing more of it. 

The next day, when I was off, he called and told me I had broken his anonymity. I apologized and promised to be more careful in the future.
