I remember this seminar not only because I got to organize it for visiting students of Yokohama City University, but because I had an accident the night prior. My knees were badly wounded. My right ankle twisted. It hurt so bad that it was difficult not to cry
manly tears. I mentioned a few times, if I remember correctly, that the commute to my previous work requires a lot of walking. On the way to work the day after, I didn’t take a cab. I still tortured myselfwalked and made the pain worse. Skipping the seminar was an option, but there wasn’t anyone else left in the office to deal with the seminar.
Even with that incident and all the overtime work, I still had salary deductions (even though they were supposed to be more than a year ago of the deducted salary). Yes, that’s right, even for doing overtime work! There’s a long story behind it, but anyway, that’s what you call taking care of your employees. /sarcasm The concern I received back then was touching. I’m grateful as well as for my daily companion from work who made the walk home less difficult and full of laughs. 🙂
