Oh, that's so totally biased against salespeople, isn't it? But the basic premise is true for anything, right? So long as it doesn't have a negative impact on me, let's do everything and anything to help me. We're all looking out for number one, unless we're Mother Teresa. [And, if we're Mother Teresa, we're dead and not reading this.]
Back to Priscilla and Sylvia. Sylvia wanted marketing to give away the store to lure an advertiser. Priscilla didn't want to give away the store because that would impact her ability to give away store parts to other advertisers (who weren't Sylvia's). That annoyed Sylvia mightily. In fact, when Priscilla sent an email detailing why she wasn't going to do something, Sylvia was fed up. She had had it with Priscilla. And she complained about Priscilla mightily in an email to others.
Only instead of forwarding the email to the others, she sent the complaint email about Priscilla to Priscilla .
Do you know how horrible Sylvia felt? Sick-to-her-stomach horrible. Because she and Priscilla had never had a decent relationship; in fact, in Sylvia's mind, Priscilla was always hindering Sylvia's progress. Priscilla, quite frankly, was a bitch in Sylvia's eyes.
But you can't both work at
Or the beginning.
