Assistant: Sorry for ranting at you Friday. You had my position before me, so I kinda let it all spill out since you understand the personalities I’m dealing with.
Coworker: Oh, no problem. Anytime you want to vent, I know what you are dealing with so just let it out.
Assistant: Yeah, I can’t vent to my family because they just tell me to move back “home”. And I can’t vent to anyone else in the office like Sue*. I never know who she’s going to talk to later.
Coworker: Yeah, that’s true. She does like to talk
Assistant: Mh-mm. And I think she doesn’t realize that Nice Liz* and Evil Liz are the same person.
Assistant: Like, when Liz is in a good mood and being Nice Liz, Sue will tell her all kinds of stuff.
Coworker: I guess she doesn’t think that Evil Liz and Nice Liz can talk to each other.
