What did I sell to them?

“Don’t believe what a businessman says as well as a politician.” My boss was standing next to my working desk, holding his cup of espresso and commenting on the recent news of Mr. President.

“You’re a businessman but you’re my boss. And I believe what my boss says.” I smiled and replied.

“Businessmen and politicians are just buying what they want from the poor and benefiting the rich.”

“Then, what did the poor sell to them?” I asked.

“You’ve sold something to them but you don’t know what you’ve sold, do you?” He asked.

“Information and privacy?” I guessed.

“When the rich make war, it’s the poor that die.” He said but he didn’t answer me straight.

“Patriotism?” I guessed again.

He smiled at me and drank his cup of coffee.

What a strange boss.

Does anyone know the recession is coming?

Here is the story of me and my boss.

I work in a strange company that my boss suggests stopping facebook and Instagram sharing of your daily life. At first, It’s hard for me as I used to share my life in social media. However, the more time I work for him, the more I know for his rigorous control.

Anyway, working for him is lovely.

‘Knock-Knock’

‘Come in’

I come to office at 9 a.m. but my boss will always be earlier than me.

‘Please tell me your instincts, will you believe the recession is coming?’

‘Pardon me?’ He always asks unusual questions, but he not always ask them in the early of the morning.

‘Tell me, who will be the last one to realise the recession?’

‘It must be the working class, like me.’

He let out a belly-laugh.

‘Why rich people don’t let them know when recession is coming? They have families as well.’ I want to express my feeling about riches always forget the poor.

‘You should ask, why government doesn’t want to let them know.’

Sometimes he asks me powerful questions that makes me blank.

‘Recession, when you see it, it will be too late. We should say ‘thank you’ to the poor because they always pay the costs for our society.’

Yes, it’s sad but true.
