John was a very hardworking young man who loved his job so much and was doing everything to be more productive everyday. He got to his place workplace at his usually time, and began his job just like every other working days, as he was performing his task for the day, a call came in, and it was his boss calling.

He picked it up, "hello sir". His boss spoke: meet me in my office now. "Okay sir" he replied. Without wasting time, as he dropped the call, he went straight to his boss office. On getting there, he greeted, good morning sir. Boss replied.. "good morning John". Then they began to converse, at the course of the conversation.

Boss : you see, John, it's no longer a news that you are a very hardworking person, and of a truth, you've been doing a great job in this company, we have been seeing every effort you've been putting into your work, and we really love it.

John replied: thank you sir.

After appreciating him for all he had done, he spoke further.

Boss speaking: you know right now the company is facing some tedious financial challenges.

John replied: yes boss i knew this, and that was why i increased my work time, and put supernumerary efforts so that in my own way i can help the company to stand.

At this time, his boss went straight to the point, and told him that: due to the present poor financial state of the company, his service won't be needed anymore in the company, John was sacked! A very hardworking staff sacked?!!! John flabbergasted. Then he began to plead " sir please don't sack me, there are lots of bills i have to pay, to survive will be very hard for me! Please and Please!!!", His boss wanted to help him, but seemed the matter was greater than his power, the order was from above. So, he had no choice than to go pack his things and leave.

The rest staff were shocked by the news. Who knows maybe their own sack letter would be given to them in some minutes time! Hmm! They felt for John, and prayed he would get better Job.


As John stepped outside the company's Gate, he turned back, looked at the company, tears fell from his eyes, he shook his head, "oh despite all my efforts here, i was still send away", he shook his head again. Hmm! Then he took taxi and left.

On getting home he explained the whole matter to his wife, but his wife was the kind of person that loved money a lot, and if money is not that available, she would begin to complain. Well, this time around she pitied him, but told him: "quickly get another Job oh because i can't withstand hunger, malnourishment and starvation! Do something!!!". From that same day, John began searching for another Job, but the more he tried, non was coming forth.


Days rolled into weeks, weeks rolled into 2 months, John was still without Job, his wife was troubling him and was even thinking of filling a Divorce, hmm! John begged her that things would be better.

His landlord too was not giving him rest, he was asking for his house Bills, because it has expired and it needed to be renewed. John didn't even have money to pay house Bills, he was facing one of the hardest times of his life.

In the Saturday of the week, he was going somewhere. Just by road side where he stood waiting for a taxi, he saw a bag, he verbalized silently to himself: "who could own this bag". He picked it up, unzip it, to his surprise, there were THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS inside the bag. John's eyes zoomed in and out, looked at the money very well.

Will John carry the money and use part to settle his Bills, and set up business for himself since he couldn't get Job?

Will he trace the owner and return the money?

Will he take the money to the Police Station?

To be continued.......

Thanks for your time.πŸ’–πŸ’–

This is a tempting desire that hit John's face oo πŸ˜…πŸ˜… What will he do? Pick it up, report to the station or even to the owner? His wife is not even helping matters at all.

Big temptation for John to🀣🀣. Let's see how he would decide in the "part 2".

This is quite sad AY, I personally think what the company did was very bad. They could have notified him of their decision much earlier and he would have at least sorted things out, instead of being caught unprepared. Looking forward to the continuation

That was quite unfair on the part of his place of work, sacking someone like that was truly unjust.

I think that my biggest attribute to any success that I have had is hard work. There really is no substitute for working hard.

Ah! The decision seems to be very hard here. Let me explain it in two ways. If John should claim the money, I'm sure he will become rich in life, and if he doesn't, he will return it to the owner. If he returns it, the owner may give him some money to start up something or he will find a better job for John.

That's true , if he decides to let the found cashes remain his, oh, that's going to be a launch into he the jackpot of his life, and that's gonna be a very thing for. Let's watch out for the second part, and see maybe he will or not.

I was really sorry for John's work experience. I have seen many examples of this story in the real world. Employees who, despite the hard work they put into a company, are suddenly sacked. I think John will trace money's owner, and want to return it. But its owner can not be found... πŸ˜‰

And that's quite bad for some employers to treat their worker like that, after putting the best efforts, but ended not chased away. I don't like that and i wish they change.

John has really been through alot, that's why it's best for one to be one's boss. Sometimes we put so much effort into the businesses of others and would still end up getting no reward.

For the question though, lol, I'm pretty sure John would do what's right. I'm anxiously waiting for the next part.

Had it been he was the owner of his job, nobody dare try that with him. He will take the best decision 😁. Thanks Ella for your beautiful comment.
