5 Top Tips For Dealing With Miss Chatty!
Cassie drives a white Fiat 500, convertible of course. It’s actually more of a sliding roof than a convertible but she’s had sooooo many good times out with the girls that the Mini Cooper soft-top is ‘on ice’. But that’s not bothering her, it’s still fab fun 🙂
The bubbly events co-ordinator drives through the car park at work roof down all year round, calling out a cheery ‘yoohoooos’ with a lovely warm smile.
She strides through the main doors wearing her stylish yellow dress making small talk with Security, sharing anecdotes with the cleaner and simply can’t get past the Receptionist without sharing what happened with who last night’. LOLs and OMGs fill the corridors with spontaneous laughter!
Cassie is lively, energetic, loves working in a team and is the go-to person when you need the works party arranging.
That’s great, but we’re here to get things done aren’t we?
And how are we supposed to get stuff done when Cassie insists on nattering to everyone AND all of the time. And what about her own work, with less chat couldn't she get more done?
Cassie chats too much, too fast and has an attention span that’s waaaaay too short. Or has she?
You see, Cassie is outspoken, but she's also accepting, enthusiastic and has no idea why some people are so damn miserable. She loves her work because after all, it's just part of life, isn't it?
