BossMan told his wife that he will let Irene go. He told me Irene needs to call Olivia and apologize or at least makes amends with her.
Once that is done, he will tell his wife that he gave her another chance.
The problem is Irene is very proud. She would rather leave the company than apologize to Olivia who once used to be her good friend. She believes Olivia sent such a stern and mean message on purpose knowing that she would react as she did.
I am trying to reason with her telling he that she still needs to work and it is not just her. She has a family and she has responsibilities.
I truly do not want her to go and I think BossMan ants to keep her too but his pride has been hurt since he was cc'ed in Irene's backlash.
In a few minutes, I will sit Irene down for another "reasoning" session.
On the other hand, even though I understand why BossMan wants Irene to have a heart to heart with Olivia, I am dreading the outcome of that meeting if Olivia accepts to meet with Irene. Both women are stubborn and proud.
What a stupid mess!
I will let you know how this ends when I find out.
Meanwhile all your suggestions are welcome!
