His troglodyte employer was tired of Jack’s Pollyanna attitude, wanted Jack to be more studious, instead of emphasizing his creative ideas. Jack’s project expense budget disappeared, his efforts chastised and the pressure was on to resign.
The happiness balloon deflated. Jack couldn’t substitute his personality and quit, the company’s loss.
