just can't understand Diane! She's complained to your
supervisor at Research and Planning that on the last
three projects you and she worked on together, you
represented her ideas as your own. Her name was
on the reports, so you don't understand the problem.
Doesn't she realize that if you work on a project
together ideas will merge and become shared?
responsibility of presenting completed projects has
almost always fallen to you, and while it's stressful,
you can't help it if other people give you the credit!
Diane talked to you about it last week in the breakroom,
really jumping on your case, and you were so surprised
that you've avoided her ever since. You like Diane,
she's been a friend since undergrad school and you've
always been a good team at the office.
you were approached by the boss and asked to meet
with a mediator and Diane, you reluctantly agreed
because you really didn't feel you had any other choice.
You can't believe she went to the supervisor over
this. It makes you look bad, and you think she probably
should apologize. You think Diane should lighten up
