It was drizzling again when I left office. At the traffic light just beside my office block, a girl was busy blocking the the rain and brushing water out of her hair. I offered to share my umbrella with her but she sheepishly refused.
She was really chio, pretty, with her hair coloured brown and dressed in very nice office wear. But that was not the reason why I offered her my umbrella! I would likely have offered even if it was a smelly old man. It was just one of those things that gentlemen do, though only strange people still do such things these days. Anyway it turned out that we went the same way at least halfway to the MRT station. She was holding a little sports bag so she may be on her way to a nearby gym.
But looking at her, I wonder how people who also work in office can have the energy to go workout in the gym, groom themselves and shop for such nice clothing. To have a job that pays well enough to afford all these in her youth and not have all her energy drained out by the job. That is amazing when I’m always feeling drained.
I keep telling myself that I just need to endure until the bonus comes in April, and then I will find a job that better suits me, paycut notwithstanding. It must be wonderful to be contented where you are working.
