When Double Becomes Single…continued

Sharon held her breath before telling Jeff the latest arrangements or rather a version of what’s going on. “Since it’s impossible to continue working the company with just me alone, your brother and his wife offered to help out with Corrine doing measurements and Jeff can develop business in New Jersey while I continue with our old customers in this area.”

Jeff turned into a storm cloud and said,”I knew it, the minute I turned my back he jumped in to see if he can become a partner  but don’t let him because he’s a snake so beware and watch the company checkbook and after a while notice he’s written a check for an item that has nothing to do  with business. Did you get the insurance money?

“Yes I did and it’s safe with an investment company and the man next door saved me from a bad fall and now he’s plowing the driveway.”
