Despite this, the young woman feels quite happy – because she has loving grandparents who live in a beautiful house by the sea, as well as a beloved dog who walks with her to work.
But it was precisely at work that she was received an unpleasant surprise … The old boss, with whom January had great relations, retired. And in his place came a new leader – a very complex and strict person. It was all downhill from the very first day, and the girl began to seriously think about finding a new job. But one evening she had the opportunity to learn the character of her boss from the other, completely unexpected side …
