Short-Time Colleague, by Eric J. Smith

That blonde was smart—knew her mathematics—and was pleasant besides; still, something was off. Yes, she had that bombshell build, kept her hair swept up, and, man, was she ever man-crazy. If you wore pants, smiled, and talked to her—paid her any positive attention at all—she’d light up like a Christmas tree. She didn’t last long with the company, though. After six months, she quit to chase after some sleazy guy who worked for a competitor based in Colorado. No, I don’t know much about people, but I bet she had a hard home life.
