Strong Position


current time:

After she goofed up on an assignment at work, Padma tried to talk her friend into helping her fix the problem. Her friend was shy and did not want to go to a company if she did not know the people there. Padma promised to acquaint her with two or three of her colleagues. Finally they went to work on Friday, but just as they were about to go into the office, her friend became very nervous. Padma told her friend to calm down, but she said it a bit too strong. Finally Padma had to back off, and let her friend go home. Now Padma is talking with a colleague about how she can fix the problem she has at work.
