Jeff: You're not going to believe what happened?
Lucy: Oh, is the big meeting over? What happened?
Jeff: Dan tried to take credit for our idea for the new campaign.
Lucy: You're kidding me! I thought he might try to pull something like this, but I didn't think he'd have the nerve to do that.
Jeff: Yeah, and to top it off, he said that he did it all by himself.
Lucy: He's unbelievable. What a jerk! He slacks off for the last two weeks and doesn't lift a finger to help on any part of the project.
Jeff: Well, he's not going to get away with it. I'm going to talk to the senior vice president. I think she'll listen.
Lucy: Are you sure? I think she's fair-minded, but maybe she thinks we should work it out with Dan ourselves. She might not want to step in.
Jeff: Well, can you think of another way to handle this?
Lucy: I wish I could. I don't want to just blow it off, but we have to think of the fall out. Maybe the senior VP will end up thinking we can't fight our own battles.
Jeff: Yeah, you're right. I'm just so ticked off right now I can't think.
Lucy: That's probably the problem. We both need to cool off so we can think straight. Let's get some coffee and see what we can come up with.
Jeff: That sounds good. But, if I see Dan on the way out, I'm going to floor that guy.
Lucy: Yeah. That makes two of us.
