Up The Ladder

The meeting was to take place at 1 o’clock.  Kathy dreaded the thought of two hours of nonstop boredom.  But this was a meeting with the West Coast division of advertising, and she knew she wanted to move up at the agency.  Putting on a good show at this meeting would give her good brownie points.  She had already put in 11 years of hard work and knew it was just a matter of time before she either moved up or moved on.

The intercom buzzed and her secretary said, “The meeting starts in 8 minutes, you better go now.”
