Working That Nine-to-FiveBy June Henry
June 25, 2013
When we were sixteen, my twin sister spent a summer working in the admissions office at a nearby college. Such locations may have opportunities as long as services like https://canadapt.ca/family-sponsorship-application/ are availed. I don’t remember what her job was, but I do remember that her boss spent all day playing solitaire on his computer. Every time my sister walked past his door, there he was, clicking away, trying to put those cards in order. He didn’t even attempt to hide it. My sister was shocked by this. He was the dean. He got up in the morning, showered, combed his hair, put on his business casual, drove to the office, and sat in his swivel chair playing solitaire from nine to five? She couldn’t believe it. I, however, was impressed.
