The doors of Porter Unlimited opened alerting her presence as every employee gave their salutations as she passed by their perspective work stations on her way to the elevators..
”Good Morning Ms. Porter..So nice to see you again” The elevator attendant greeted as he pushed the button for the doors to open.
”Hi Percy…Good morning to you” she replied stepping into the elevator and watched as Percy pushed the bottom labeled Executive floor and the doors closed.
”Did you enjoy your European vacation Ms. Porter?”
”Yes Percy I did..It was a wonderful way to relax and unwind after graduating with my Master’s but now that I am back I am ready to get to work”
Percy nodded and scratched his head in amusement
”Yes ma’am” he replied as the doors opened revealing a marble stone hallway with full mirrored walls on each side.. ”Have a nice day Ms Porter”

Chuckling slightly and leaning back in his chair he motioned for her to take a seat..
”Elizabeth…….” He began as he picked her briefcase off his desk and set it to the side of his chair on the floor….. ”I’m not sure what you expected when you arrived here this morning but I needed you three months ago to take this position upon your graduation..After Henderson retired earlier this year I had a temporary appointment to keep things running until my brilliant daughter could take the reins but alas she decided instead to take a vacation backpacking through Europe for three months with a group of women…Now I’m not sure what that means to you but to me that means you aren’t ready or eager to handle such responsibility….I have spent many years turning this company into a multi million dollar corporation…I do not have the time nor the patience to wait for you while you sow your wild oats or whatever it is that you partook of on your quest for European culture….” He paused as he watched his daughter squirm in her seat before continuing “Furthermore as of last week I permanently filled that position with the person that has been here the last 7 months taking on the responsibilities and duties that position required….”
