Work. Apparently the thing we do to pay the bills, because someone many many years ago declared a class system and the idea of equal bartering system got lost.
So us little people who keep the wheel turning do so and almost to the tune of that old story Oliver, say “Please Sir”.
I’m actually not complaining about work funnily enough as I’m a strong work ethic person. People who do know me know I give 110% even when I know it’s not deserved to the other side.
I do that in everything I do. Maybe not perfectly but I still try.
This week I received a letter from my landlady which makes me seriously question the ethics other people have.
She has in her infinite wisdom informed me of an increase to my rent of £100 per month as of January. Just as Xmas is about to descend.
Believe me I already pay ridiculous rent and have done so since 2004 and I’m sure, cleared her mortgage already.
So as I sit on the bus heading into my work place I’m questioning that all that work ethic and 110% commitment, is really only feeding the greed of others and us little people who do so have to continue to say “please sir”.
Peoples ethics are wrong, greed is wrong and in my next life I’m coming back as a paper clip because paper clips get to reside all day in a desk watching the work go by.
On that note however I am resolute that I will always give that extra because at the end of time. I can never berate myself for not trying harder.
So as I sit on this bus headed to work, I do so with a smile because no matter what rubbish the world does dish out to everyone. I’m still lucky to be here and have good family and friends and life could be so much worse when I reflect on what’s happening around the world.
That is what counts.
