Danielle had no place to even voice an opinion about my relationship with Tom and/or his "banter" with Ariana. She doesn't know any of us well enough and it was purely an uneducated observation. Dani and I were not friends, so it really pissed me off to have her spreading these rumors like the damn plague. Not only did I have my friends knocking my relationship with Tom, now I had to deal with a random co-worker trying to put a wedge between us. I wanted to and was ready to turn over a new leaf both at work and with the love of my life. It was also crucial that I build a positive rapport with Lisa and didn't want anything to mess that up.
