Yah! One of my co-workers looked hear and there and opened the topic, “so, you are one of our colleagues…”
“Well, don’t worry”, he assured.
Before I could react, he continued, “what is your salary?”
“Hundred plus,” I responded.
“Wow! That shows that you are our section head?”
“Your position is safe. A good job in this town,” he assured.
“Are you sure?”
“The fact is, your salary is good enough to pay the monthly rent, which is around hundred.”
“The amount looks pretty good,” I assured myself and accepted the said amount and informed the owner.
“OK sir, you are in a good position. All the best!”
The salary was good mainly because the owner can use the amount for buying things that were beyond his reach!
What made our family members a bit unhappy was that the amount left behind was not good enough to buy a radio or a tv.
All is well that ends well!
