I'm a 25 year old man sitting along a long oval shaped clear glass table with 50 year old men droning on and on about who knows what?
This meeting was never ending. The company boss' were drawling in their unusual 'chipper' tones making a horrible first impression. For me business is business. No funny business. No fakes. No mistakes. Just pure simple business. I guess that's how why I've come so far. I never make a deal with untrustworthy companies so no money loss and everyone tries to get an approval from me.
"Sir, would you like to see our presentation" That's how bad the speech was. I didn't register a word the man said.
"No I think that's enough" With that as my final words I walked out of meeting and took the elevator to floor 16. My floor. My personal space. My office. Before I entered my office I turned to Cammie, my very pregnant personal assistant "Tell them there will be no offer made by me". She replied with a quick "Yes Sir". You see Cammie has been my assistant since I started this business 2 years ago. 29 years of age and having her second child. She understands for me business means business and that I couldn't care less about personal issues. I like my work done effiently and quickly no bending around corners just straight forward work. Me being me of course loves order but hates change. When Cammie took a week off ill I realised that when she leaves of materiality leave I would need a new assistant. My work was everywhere and to say the least that week was one I would like to forget. Now Cammie has to look after 2 children she handed in her resignation letter so she would leaving very soon meaning I have to interview and find a new assistant.
"How many for the interview today"
"5 sir, I also sent you apology letter to Mr Smith about last week's fiasco"
"I didn't tell you to do that"
"I know Edward, but you know me, I'm 2 steps ahead of you. When you cooled down you would have told me to send one anyway. I know you business is business and Mr Smith is a very important client" Ahh now I know I said business is business for the 20th time but Cammie's different. Me and her are also mutual friends NOT on a personal level. Only after 2 months of working for me she knew what I wanted without me even asking. Now we weren't close friends because I don't do that sort of thing. But we were friends. Plain and simple.
"Oh and send that Newton kid a letter dismissing him from this company." I called as I walked toward my office.
