Thumbs Up

“Do you know who I am?” the woman screamed. “I am the heir to the Wintworth fortune and your attitude, young man, is felonious. You’re lucky I’m not going to report you to your superior, although I’ve got a hankering to do so, let me tell you.”

“Ma’am, I’ve checked the status of your shipment and I can assure you it will arrive on time for the symphony orchestra’s concert this weekend,” the logistics manager said.

“It had better, young man,” the woman said, “or I’ll have your head on a platter. And I can assure you that this is not an idle or harmless threat.”

“Listen you shriveled up old bitch,” the logistics manager snapped, “I don’t care who you are or how much money you’ve got, your threats do not intimidate me. I know what I’m doing and when all is said and done, despite your extremely obnoxious behavior, all you’ll have to say is all’s well that ends well.”

    The logistics manager said his peace and hopefully he won’t get fired for doing that.
