Jeffrey Adams, the CEO, was ranting about how the firm had missed its quarterly earnings target for the past five consecutive quarters.
“Jeffrey,” Eileen Anderson, the CFO, interrupted, “you need to take a breath. You’re sounding more like a petulant child having a temper tantrum than the CEO of a billion dollar company.
“Excuse me, Eileen,” Jeffery said in an angry retort. “It’s loose lips like yours that sink ships.”
Aaron Jones, the head of technology, raised his hand. “What is it, Aaron?” the CEO said.
“I do have some good news,” Aaron said. “My team is ahead of schedule for the release of the latest upgrade to our gaming software and I believe that, once the marketplace get to see it, sales will skyrocket and it will prove to be a bonanza for our bottom line.”
“Now that’s what I’m talking about,” the smiling CEO said, as most of the other board meeting attendees rolled their eyes.
