It’s a very important day for me, fingers crossed, am sitting with few others on the 5th floor of a high rise office building. It’s been three months since I am out of pay from my current job due to the prevailing pandemic situation’s effect on the economic crisis.
I couldn’t resign my current job although not getting paid thinking maybe one-day things will work and I will get paid again. I had to stop my 7-year-old daughter’s school or maybe e-school nowadays what people say since I cannot afford to give education from that very good institution and living both from my saved money, maybe I can again get her back to school in the next session. I had a small car that I bought for our family two years back when I got promoted and had a salary hike. Last month I negotiated with the bank and settled my dues by surrendering the car and paying off fines and taxes, maybe if the crisis level comes down I will buy a two-wheeler at that time.
My wife is trying to support our family by selling off a few gold ornaments which she had from her wedding and buying me some more time thinking maybe I will get a decent job and will gift her back at least some of her ornaments. We don’t have the luxury for our treatments also since the medical coverage has lapsed, I hope we may not fall sick.
This is my 6th interview, the job profile is low but they will give a salary, I wish I may be the luckiest person sitting in this room to get this job.
