Despite all the insults, innuendos, attitude, nothing Joyce Neller did or said bother me. I kept my smile, my sweet voice.
It was evident her inability to upset me was really driving her crazy.
She went into some diatribe which I didn’t listen to, concentrating on what I’d be doing tomorrow. I decided on a beach day.
At some point she stopped talking. I didn’t notice until in a loud voice she asked me if her behaviour annoyed me. Wearing the same smile, in the same sweet voice I said, “No Miss Neller.”
As I seemed to be in no rush to get away from her, she demanded to end the ‘tour’ and be returned to Ms. Robert’s office.
I escorted her back, Valerie mouthed ‘thank you’, then, ‘take tomorrow off’.
I left the office feeling very pleased with myself.
