FASHION PULIS: Inevitably moving on

Circumstances made Network Talent (NT) stand firm on a surprising decision. NT has been itching to explore other areas of her world, as she feels to have outgrown her place. NT attempted to test the waters and was successful. However, she returned out of goodwill, and of course, a binding contract. As the contract has ended, NT mulled over her path.

Before making up her mind, NT sent feelers of wanting challenging projects to make her stay. When a Decision-Maker (DM) found out what NT wanted, the feeling was that NT had the gall to make such demands and lacked debt of gratitude. After all, NT was given opportunities. If NT were granted projects successively despite poor ratings, losses would be incurred. NT found out the reaction and exchanged hurtful messages with DM.

Subsequently, a Close Relation (CR) apparently chided DM over weaknesses in promotion and build up. Moreover, CR said the Target Team (TT) can make gold even out of a trashy project. With CR’s influence, NT was surely moving to TT.

Meanwhile, TT was honest. TT welcomed NT, but could only offer less than what NT was used to. NT said the offer was fine as long as she has projects that can match her skills.

Cold and Angry

The Emissary (TE) had high hopes prior to meeting with Impetuous Personality (IP). TE has been trying to be the channel between IP and his party. However, patching things with IP is like moving heaven and earth, as IP has remained nonchalant and cold despite all attempts.

This time, TE was optimistic that time could have softened IP and would grant his request. All IP needed was a signature as required by the bank. TE relayed that his party only wanted what was due and IP can have the rest, which was more than enough to sustain the lifestyle IP had been accustomed to. However, TE got a litany from IP, who fumed. IP told TE to remind his party that she was right all along about their financial situation.

The tirade went on, and TE ran out of patience and left. Meanwhile, TE told his party about IP and proposed legal means to deal with the problem. However, TE’s proposal was thumbed down as his party did not want too much fuss and to upset IP further. Thus, for now, TE’s party will make do with their present means, as IP seems to be unwilling to give up even a single centavo.
