On the other hand uncle was not willing to leave them. George the younger brother asked him about the ambience of his new work place. In a depressed voice he said that it had a very atrocious environment and he had lost the job. He added that he was sitting idle. Both the siblings were astonished as their uncle was very diligent. They both asked him, ‘what made you leave the job’.
