I should have known that the Princess hadn’t changed one iota since she’s been gone, she just hasn’t let her brother see how she is now. I think that she has learned how to be a bit more subtle with her rants and raves, however, they are still there.
I was sitting in my office going through the invoices and trying to balance the books out for my monthly report to the Boss when I heard the familiar footsteps of Her Highness come in the office. I just kept working because this is the time of day that I think better and I really didn’t want to deal with her this morning, to be honest.
She wanted to know what kind of work and contracts I had lined up for her and she wasn’t even nice about it because she was too busy trying to read my ledger upside down. I closed the ledger real quick like and told her that her contracts and any other work that I had for her should be in her employee mailbox slot outside the office door. The Boss had told me to treat her just like I would any other employee and I was going to do exactly what he told me to do because I just had a feeling that things weren’t going to go as smoothly as he thought they might.
Well, let’s just say that the noises she started making when she got her stuff out of her box were between a growl, a few Blood Elf oaths, and then she stomped back into the office to let me know that she was going to talk to her brother when he got back and “Oh, where is he, anyway?” I politely reminded her to look at the due dates on the contracts and the list of things that she needed to do in the warehouse and she just went off like a rocket. As for where her brother was, I told her that he was in Nagrand for a while – which really upset her.
I don’t think that I have been called that many names in such a short space of time since the last time I had to go bail Uncle Zednick out of jail for mooning Garrosh. I am very proud of myself because I maintained my composure although I would have loved to let loose with some chained lightning on her backside, however, I didn’t. She then asked me for an advance because she needed some equipment and I told her to look in the locker at the base of the stairs in the warehouse because there was all kinds of equipment there and she still needed money to come back up and I would give her some.
Let’s just say that she hasn’t been back in the office and I doubt that I will see her for the rest of the day. One of the guys came up and told me that she had been in the locker and hadn’t taken anything out, however, she threw everything on the floor and stormed out. So, that was another mess that someone else had to clean up because of her.
As for the money that she was going to ask for, I was going to give her what I would give any “new” hire that asked for an advance and that would have been twenty-five gold. When people turn in contracts, they are paid and if they need any advances, I always decide how much they can be trusted for by the history of their work with the company. She has no history with the company yet, so, a minimum amount is all that I could give her. These are the rules that her brother and my Boss has had implemented with the company for years and I’m not going to be the one to make special decisions for her and change that.
Apparently, the Boss hasn’t’ seen fit to give the Princess a new communicator unit and she didn’t ask for one either. Guess she isn’t going to talk to him unless she tries to find him in Nagrand and I don’t think she is that stupid. She wouldn’t have access to the warehouse or living quarters in Shattrath because the Boss had Uncle Zednick change all of the wards there and I don’t think that Zed would have included her in the setup because she was still missing when that work was done.
All I know is that I am going to have to sit here and hope that she doesn’t go on one of her rampages until after her brother gets back and from what I just got in the mail tells me that he won’t be back until the end of next week. Everyone knows that when he goes to Shattrath and then on to Nagrand that we are not to bother him until he contacts the office – the man needs to have some space to himself once in a while. The ones that have been with the company the longest and have been very close to the Boss know that he is married to a Night Elf – I don’t see anything wrong with that and if it makes him happy, it’s his personal business.
I know that when I leave the office in a little while, I am going to lock the door and make sure that the petty cash is locked up in the safe. I just hope that she doesn’t cause any trouble for us at the house because Uncle Zednick was already unhappy with the thoughts of us being there to start with – he thought we should find someplace else. We get to live there for free and it really is a beautiful place, we’ve never had it so good.
I could call the Boss, however, I don’t think that this is an emergency situation just yet unless she sets fire to something. I could write a letter real quick and mail it out, however, he wouldn’t get it until a few days before he comes back and I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news and spoil his time off. No, I’ll handle things her as I see fit and hope that I don’t do anything wrong, which I doubt that he would get upset because I put Faendra in her place. As the manager of the office here, I have the authority to do that and if I see fit, I suppose I could even fire her.
No, I don’t think that I will fire her anyway unless the items that she got out of her mailbox aren’t completed in a timely fashion. I’m sure that she has gone off to cool down and will be back, not today maybe, however, I’m sure she will be back.
