Victor: We need to take the bull by the horns. In the meeting today, we’re going to give it to them straight, no more hemming and hawing.
Maura: You’re right. We need to tell them what we really think and be done with it.
Victor: Definitely. We’ve been conciliatory long enough. Today, we need to be insistent without being too pushy.
Maura: Being unassuming and deferential has its place, but not if we seem meek. We need to be assertive without being too in-your-face.
Victor: You’re absolutely right. One of us has to speak up.
Maura: Yes, one of us has to be bold. They’ll have to take us seriously this time.
Victor: Okay, ready?
Maura: Sure, I have your back.
Victor: Huh? I thought you were going to do the talking.
Maura: Uh, I thought you were.
Victor: Maybe we should wait for the next meeting to take them on.
Maura: I totally agree. It’ll give us a little time to work up to it.
