We are inside just another office where everyone seems to be busy. And yes, it's recession time.
He (boss): Hey GWBE, are you free for a minute?He takes her into a cabin where the bigger boss is also seated. Atmosphere is eerie.
She: Sure, I'll be right with you.
She (thinks): Uh, oh!
He (boss' boss): You know how bad things are. Blah blah blah....I haven't even taken a bonus last year...blah blah blah....we have to reduce costs to save the company....blah blah blah.
She (thinks): This is it! The dreaded moment!
He:...blah blah blah...I am so sorry to say that we've decided to make you redundant. blah blah blah
She (thinks): Great, so finally it has happened to me too.
He: Blah blah...so sorry. Please remember that it's not a reflection on your performance. Blah blah blah...feel free to take the day off.
Now if only I could turn back time, things could have been a little different. Let's try it again.
He (boss): Hey GWBE, are your free for a minute?
She: Sorry, am really tied up. Can this wait till next week?
He: What are you busy with? I know that you are on bench, come on, get in this meeting room!
She: So sorry, send me a meeting request!
