Yes. In my previous job, my boss has someone else she'd love to be working for her instead of me, and so she tried to do things to de-focus and disorient me, everything to the point of putting me in a hot seat in the middle of VIPs. Whew! But I did not give up, I tried to be smarter, did and showed her the best. Barely after a month she planned for a regional trip having me along. All the while I thought it would be the worst days of my job to be with her every second of the day for a week!
But I was wrong. My efforts were not wasted. Never in my imagination that things could be twisted that fast. She probably has proved how diligent I was, serious, quiet and faithful to her all throughout, we ended up best of colleagues. I became one of her favorites, we became among the best teams and we became bestfriends - to this day. Just one wonderful experience of not easily giving up.
Thank you for the question. That was great. :=)
