Tom and Bill have been fighting a lot over a project that their department has been working on. At the company Christmas party, Tom spent some time chatting with another coworker named Mary. He told her that Bill has been impossible to work with, mostly because he is just a lazy and unmotivated person who only got the job because his father-in-law is a big client. Tom suggested to Mary that she should apply for a transfer into his department, so that he would have someone he trusted and knew would do a great job working with him. Meanwhile, on the other side of the room, Bill was talking to Jared, a coworker within their department. Bill was explaining that Tom is the reason the project is going so poorly, as he is so competitive and arrogant that he bulldozes everyone into agreeing with his ideas even if they aren't good. Bill said that although he has tried to slow Tom down to consider their options, Tom just isn't willing to listen to anyone but himself. Bill suggested to Jared that he should ask their boss if he could join in on the project, so Bill would have someone else to work with who can slow Tom down.
