There’s this guy I met the other day.
He was sitting at his desk – the front desk.
He seemed really bored, and was watching some video on his phone.
“How irresponsible”, I thought to myself. “Sitting at the front desk of an office and watching videos”.
I casually asked him how he was and what he was upto. He said he had been at the job for a year. He needed the money desperately to make ends meet. I enquired about his work timings. 8 am to 8 pm he said.
“5 days a week right?”
“No sir, I have to come on Saturdays and Sundays as well.”
Imagine that, no weekends off, no breaks, just an insane 7 day work week, and that too for a pittance. I couldn’t see him complaining though. He was doing what needed to be done, and with a smile. A good lesson for the serial-cribber in me.
