Andrew thinks that his life sucks. He has received three queries in the office in the past three months and another one could mean indefinite suspension. However, he does not know what to do. Everything just seems to be coming down on him at the same time. As he left the office that evening, he decided to take the LA Metro Rail heading home. Highlighting at the Union station near downtown, Andrew boarded a bus but stopped about five streets before his home. He then decided to take a walk the rest of the way.
The thought of going home also did not sound appealing to Andrew. He is sure to meet a not-so cheerful wife who has lost her enthusiasm for everything. He couldn’t also stomach seeing their only child, Jason still in his deplorable state, health-wise.
Life for Andrew and Janet has been so uneventful for the couple in the past four years now. A sick child whose condition seems to defy medical solution, Janet’s recent loss of job due to regular absenteeism to cater to their sick son and now Andrew’s ever-mounting problems at work. As he walked, Andrew assessed the current situation in his life. As a Sales Executive, the figures have not been looking so good in the past four months and the Marketing Manager can’t stand the situation anymore. Now, his job is on the line. “Phew! So what’s the way out of this whole mess?” Andrew asked himself!
