Turf Wars

Jack really does not care if he has a corner office but he sees himself as Mary's equal and if she is going to get a corner office then by God Jack is going to fight for his because if he doesn't his department will say he got duped or he's a wimp or the CEO doesn't value him and so Jack, who was prepared to be reasonable and all that is on the verge of turning into a Tasmanian Devil in front of the management intern who was given the job of negotiating who gets which size offices and is wondering why Jack seems to be acting like such a jerk when Mary was such a good sport but then, of course, Mary knew she had the corner office and Jack suspects she schmoozed the intern into giving her first choice and the cards are stacked which makes him just all the madder as he watches the intern draw boundaries on a floor plan and ask, "Will this work?"
