Who’s The Boss?

Last Time …

Amelia doesn’t know it but big changes are afoot. Her boss, Zoe, has been given a promotion, and Zoe’s boss, Declan, has suggested to her that Amelia and Christina are the top contenders to replace her.

Zoe is struggling to decide between them. She’s recently received complaints about Amelia from Christina and another colleague, Chantal. Uncertain whether these complaints are valid, or are simply jealousy, she’s contemplating appointing someone from outside the department.

What will Zoe decide?

Change Is In The Air

Last Time …

Thank God things with Christina are back to normal. Though I’m not sure about the rest of the team, Chantal’s been acting strange towards me lately.

Right now that’s the least of my worries. Work’s been full on busy, and Zoe’s been riding us pretty hard. Declan’s been having lots of meetings with all the ‘Heads Of’. Now Zoe’s called a morning tea meeting – but I can’t go.

Can’t wait to hear the news from Chrissy when she gets back. The uncertainty’s getting to me because Richard and me need both our salaries to make the mortgage payments. I hope its good news.

Troubled Waters

Last Time …

Christina and me went to Choochoo’s after work to celebrate getting the job done for Zoe. It was a big night, just like old times. Good old Richard picked us up afterwards, even though it was a Monday night.

Though I do still wonder what Christina’s issue was.

What The?

Last Time …

Things between Christina and me went from bad to worse.

I don’t know what I did but she was really at me and did it in front of the others. Then when Zoe called our Monday meeting forward by a couple of hours Christina didn’t tell me. I felt set-up. I had to rush in at the last minute with no preparation. Continue reading

From Bad to Worse

Last Time …

The tone of Christina’s voice was hateful. I thought I was going to vomit right there and then! I’ve never heard her talk about anyone like that – not even when she’d told me about the bitch that she’d worked with in her last job. Why would she do this to me? What’s going on?

Now, I’m sitting in the café staring at my coffee cup, trying to get myself together. I don’t know what to do. I don’t even want to go back up there.
