A week has passed since the two girls had been on their weekend-trip Sisley had covered one colleague’s desk who went on holiday and she did really, well. She actually had enjoyed the past week talking with the customers and making the arrangements for the delivery.
Even sometimes it got a bit harsh and busy like the encounter with Peter. Sisley had arranged a delivery for hazard goods, but the lorry was delayed and there was no valid permission for parking the lorry on a public street. The one that was arranged had now been expired. Peter wanted that Sisley took the responsibility and would allow the driver to park the lorry at their estate. But Sisley simply had said no and Peter had finally agreed to it.
Ten minutes later Sisley’s phone rang, Peter’s boss: “I want to talk to the Manager David, now!” And immediately put down the phone. Of course, this was about the lorry with the hazard goods.
Ten minutes passed and the phone rang, again Peter’s boss: “ Sisley, I apology, I was very upset as Peter has no responsibility to make those decisions, but yes, after talking with David, you were right and it was up to us that the lorry had the permission to park. Please take my apology and I also want to say thank you for making the deliveries on time, you really did a great job and it’s great to work with you!”
Sisley replied “Oh well, Peter that’s okay, this was an explosive thing to handle, I felt the same about it, so a little heat in the air it’s okay and I’m glad to hear that everything else went well. No need to apology.” Peter: “Oh, thanks Sisley than I wish you a great week and I’m looking forward to working with you on the next orders.” Sisley replied simply by answering with a “Pleasure of the company” and put the phone down.
Mike the Director came out of the office: ”Oh, Sisley what is defenestration in German.” Sisley: “Defenestration? This means “Rausschmiß”. David: “Defenestration, I don’t even know what this means in English!” Sisley: “This means to throw out something or someone out of the window or in some other context it can also mean the action or process of dismissing someone from a position of power or authority” Mike: “Oh, it’s always nice to have you around Sisley!”
Tina just coming around with a sharp look at Sisley “Oh, what a compliment, what did you do for him?!” Sisley’s phone ringing again, blinking with an eye on Tina then picking up the phone. Mel calling from London: “Oh, Sisley, you won’t believe who just called me, Marc, the guy from our weekend trip…..!”
