What is a good reaction word other than "wow"?

Used in conversation, you have "man", "oh really","for real", and "wow". I feel that those words are used for informal conversation and to the under 25 set. What are good words that replaces the reaction of "wow" in the business or corporate world?. Example1: Your best female friend since kindergarten tells you that she has fallen in love with your husband of 10 years and that they've been having an affair behind your back for 8 years. Your reaction word: Wow! Example2: Your supervisor admits to you that he has a slot open for a Jr. Supervisor position but after you accept the offer you find that you have to fire 4 employees because their services are "no longer needed". You know these people personally and would hate to do it and your supervisor knows that. Your business reaction word: ? Please keep the reaction words clean.

A nice... "Really?" or..."Is that Right?" Should do the trick. But honestly. ur over reacting. If you carry yourself in a way thats humble but demands respect, you could say "GEE WIZ" and still be takin seriously.

Example 1 reaction would not be wow. More like What the f*** is your problem!! Example 2. Awww man. or Awww s***. I'm sorry but these are the realites given the scenarios. Most people are going to curse. Anything less would not be believable. And I'm over 25.

Example 1: Really?! Thanks for your honesty ...finally. Friends don't do this to each other. What were you thinking? Thank you for telling me. I'd rather find out from you than to have discovered your deception on my own. Example 2: You will need to find another Jr. Supervisor, then. Under the circumstances, I must respectfully rescind acceptance of this promotion.

Ex.1--for me.. HOLY CRAP Ex. 2 ---for me Oh my gosh. OH MY GOD. WHAT? ( good circumstances in business.. That's Amazing! That's Great! That's Fantastic! That's Wonderful! Oh my gosh! ( uttering the name God is offensive to some people, so in business transactions/meetings, it's better to stick with gosh or goodness )
