Last week, while my two main rival sales reps happened to be on vacation (but not together. yea, right! Wink! Wink!), we brought in a new supplier.

One of my reps, who is more than a wee bit competitive and a whole lot territorial, found out about it before I had a chance to break the news. Personally I would like to have been in open territory with many avenues of egress. Alas, I was cornered in the wait station when I looked up and saw all 5′-3″ of this coming at me:
I threw her a bone and managed to escape almost unscathed. My crew certainly enjoyed the entertainment.
You are still my favorite rep, Gretchen!
