It was lunch time and Louise sat in business restaurant to eat something. She wanted empty table but luck was not on her side. Two man in suits sit near her. She was witness of their conversation. “Really Paul, how my secretary lost this file, it was amazing? All important notes are there. I will send her into hell. My phone is ringing whole day. ” The other man said : “The same happened to me. I wonder why such stupid people work in office, my secretary cannot remember few phone numbers. “
Louise had rolling eyes and when they both went out, she felt more air around her. After lunch she called her best friend, and phone talk was next : “Oh dear nice to hear you. My day was awful. Boring clients annoyed me even during lunch. My meeting also went wrong. We could not agree about anything.” Wherever Louise wanted to relax, around her were busy people. Daily routine and hard work swallowed them as crocodile their victims.
