Sweet Revenge With The Oldest Trick On Earth

In Lady V's humble opinion, there are two valid reasons why some people get to sit high up there, on the corporate ladder, doing what seems to be nothing much as all, whereas the rest of us get stuck at the bottom and slog our asses off.

And the reason is simple - those who sit up there are those who can handle stress, a big chunk of it, and they will have to, no matter what. In addition, they will also have to be prepared for all sorts of weapons being shot at them from whoever, wherever and whenever, albeit, when they least expected, and learn to deal with it, gracefully or not.

Lady V admits she is not one who possesses such essential qualities, however, she is definitely one who contributes to the tough learnings of these corporate elites, and one of them is none other than her devil in disguise manageress.

Knowing what she is capable of, Lady V loves to toy with this gift and play it to her advantage, and most of the time, its pay-back. Recalling the incident this afternoon, she couldn't help but smile inwardly at how she manifested the oldest trick to its fullest.

Conversation with Director over tea and chatting mindlessly:

D: How's work been in your department?

V: It's almost the same for me, other than the piling up work, I'm loving it. But I'm glad that I can be of help to my manageress, to share her burden.

D: What's wrong?

V: Nah, all I feel is that she is working too hard and needs to chill out. So by helping her with her share of work I hope she can leave the office earlier and have a social life. *smiling innocently*

D: *raises his left eyebrow*

V: Well basically, she needs to get hooked up with some man....I'm sure you know about her bad break up with that's really affecting her a lot. I suppose the least I could do now is to support her through this rough patch so that she won't break down and affect others working with her.

D: I see....*takes a sip of coffee from his cup and goes into deep thoughts with narrowing eyebrows*

Lady V really cherishes her afternoon tea with elites who have offices at top levels of corporate buildings because she could always flaunt her innocence that causes lethal disturbances to those deserving.
