Kevin slowed the truck to a crawl in the late afternoon traffic jam of downtown Fort Worth, Texas. He looked from his left to his right mirror. There was no place to move. He could only wait, fuming, and reached for the cigarettes that were no longer there.
“Why would anyone want to meet at five on a Friday?” Ronald, Kevin’s foreman, groaned and banged his hand against the window.
“This woman is off her fucking rocker.” Kevin breathed in heavily through his nose and exhaled loudly through his mouth. Though his only interaction with Amber Grayson had been a series of telephone meetings, she had managed to make him reconsider giving up smoking.
Weeks of endless meetings discussing wall color and landscaping had left him with a droning headache and wanting a beer. When he’d reminded Ms. Grayson that his company, Another Time, renovated properties and that he was neither an interior designer nor a landscaper, she had laughed, adamant he attend every call so everyone was “on the same page”.
Ronald had calmed him down saying that once they got these big projects, they would have to put up with more crap. Giving out crap seemed to be Ms. Grayson’s forte.
His mom, who served as the company’s office manager, had worked overtime to comply with Ms. Grayson’s many demands from providing a listing of suppliers of eco-friendly materials to having new background checks performed on him and his crew.
