Doris stormed out of her boss' office reeling in anger. She banged the door behind her and almost cringed at the sight that greeted her outside. Most of her colleagues were outside the office staring at her as if they'd never seen her before. She couldn't blame them. Fifteen minutes ago, Doris could never have thought she had it in her to explode like she just had, but then again, fifteen minutes ago, her boss John had just handed over the job she been promised to her assistant besides her years of experience just because it looked better for the company to have a younger face in charge. She could guess their discomfort at having to listen at her blurt out all those profanities, but Doris didn't regret a word of what she had said. John had had it coming.

"What are you staring at?" she yelled and the small crowd of employees immediately dispersed in different directions. They seemed to fear her all of a sudden. It was hard to imagine why when she had been the friendliest of the senior employees.

The walk to her office had never been so long and uncomfortable. She could sense all their eyes burning into her skin from their little cubicles. However, if there was one thing that Doris knew how to do it was to keep a brave face. So despite all their whispers and their ugly looks, she didn't falter. She walked with her head held high and with a stern expression on her face that indicated their doom if they dared speak to her. It worked well for her and everyone minded their own business, or at least pretended to, when she walked past them.
