“George, you need to think about retirement,” the boss suggested yesterday.
Not George! Here George gets twenty peaceful minutes before clocking in. A time to sit in the early sun; a time to look at the newspaper; a time to escape!
A shiver ran down his spine as he thought about staying home all day. Home was now for Beatrice and her three kids, two dogs, and six gerbils. Six!
“Work from home,” Bea says. “Home school,” Bea says. “I can’t afford my rent,” Bea says.
George was glad he had a job at a place Big Gov calls essential.
