Dialogue/Story

Andy: What are you doing?

Sita: I’m running some numbers for the new project.

Andy: I thought that was Delia’s turf.

Sita: She’s usually the go-to person for this type of information, but I need this info right now.

Andy: I’d be careful about stepping on Delia’s toes. She doesn’t take kindly to people encroaching on her responsibilities.

Sita: I know she can be territorial at times, but I’m sure if I explain to her why I’m getting this information right this minute, she’d understand.

Andy: Okay, but don’t be surprised if she thinks you’re trying to gain control of her little fiefdom. She’s really entrenched and she doesn’t like anyone muscling in.

Sita: Do you really think she’ll misunderstand my motives?

Andy: I wouldn’t take any chances. Hurry up and finish what you’re doing, cover your tracks, and get out. With any luck, she won’t think this is the beginning of a turf war.
