Her changes of mood could be rapid, she definitely did not tolerate failure, laziness or poor work an d she firmly believed th a t everyone’s highest priority should be their work for the com pany. Ju lie w as enjoying h e r job a s Mrs W orthington’s personal secretary, b u t she knew th a t today would be tough. For several days, Ju lie had been experiencing toothache.

Julie knew a far more likely response would be som ething along the lines of: “Well, that really is m ost inconvenient. Couldn’t you have arranged to see the dentist in your own time? You have to think about the com pany as well, you know. We c a n ’ all take time off whenever we feel like it. We’d never get t any work done if we all spent the day running around seeing doctors and dentists. C an't you change the time of your appointm ent?” TO ÁN -L The pain w as increasing in intensity, though, and Julie knew she h ad to see a d en tist today.
