Iron Nick was really quite cheesed off. His boss kept badgering him to work harder. He was getting pretty steamed up about it all.
Lucy, meanwhile, was egging Nick on. She advised him to tell the boss where to stick his lousy job.
It became so heated that the three of them got together to sort things out once and for all. If we can’t agree, the boss said, I’ll have to get the board to make a decision. Really, it’s Iron Nick. He must decide.
Sorry boss, Nick said, I quit. I have more pressing matters to attend to!
