She knew her reps were bad and that should have been enough. It’s a rep, not a negotiation. “I’m a horrible pusher-upper,” she said pulling herself from the floor. “I hope you won’t count those as RX,” I said. I’ve seen that look before. Part plotting murder, part thinking of something, anything hurtful to say […]
