When Bruce takes a job as a data entry operator following a period of disability he is glad for the opportunity. But soon he finds that mixed trends once again prevail. Because of the nature of his position interaction is now key, and at first he thinks little of Janice, his lead person on the job and the story's female lead. She seems to be one who is bent on having those under her follow the rules and do things by the book. But during a slower period a sunnier side of her comes to the fore, which Bruce finds highly appealing. But when work duties become demanding again the working relationship crashes, especially once Bruce officially comes clean about his attraction for Janice. This following a feeling that she may have a crush on him as well. Although Bruce tries his best to focus on set tasks rather than worrying what those behind the scenes are doing or not doing, it doesn't bode well for him as a cadre of seven people work to plot his ouster. Should be a must-read for those concerned about restoring a sense of the fairness to the workplace, where the concept of innocent until proven guilty does not apply.
