Javier: I saw Terry cozying up to you this morning. What was that about?
Floriane: He was just offering me some advice on my first proposal.
Javier: Sure, he was. What were his true intentions?
Floriane: I think he was being upfront about wanting to help a new employee. I don’t think he had an ulterior motive.
Javier: I wouldn’t take Terry at face value. He has a reputation around the office of being two-faced. He’ll try to get to know you under false pretenses and then stab you in the back.
Floriane: I don’t get that feeling from Terry. He seemed genuine and open. By the way, was there something you needed?
Javier: Me? No. I was just trying to watch out for you.
Floriane: In that case, I’d better get back to work, and I’ll keep your warning in mind. I’ll beware of anyone giving me advice who may have an ulterior motive.
