It wasn’t as if she wouldn’t leave, but they had to give her a reasonable explanation. If it was really a mistake at work, then so be it. But it just had to be this kind of groundless accusation. She believed that no one would be able to accept it calmly.
“There’s nothing I can do about it. The resignation letter has already been drafted and cannot be changed at will. Moreover, this is what the higher-ups want. There’s nothing I can do about it,” the director shook his head and said with some regret.
Wu Man staggered back two steps. The hand that was holding the resignation letter had already unconsciously crumpled the edge of the paper. She asked, “Which higher-ups are the ones who wrote the letter? I’ve worked in the unit for so many years, and you want to chase me away with just a piece of paper. Isn’t that too unkind?”
The director sighed. Although the woman in front of him did not have an outstanding performance at work, at least she could be said to be conscientious. She was much better than some who relied on connections to get in.
At this moment, she bit her lips tightly. The corners of her eyes were red. She seemed to be extremely sad. She probably could not think of a reason for being fired. If she was in a place where no one was around, she would probably have broken down and cried out loud. Thinking of this, the director had a compassionate heart and he advised, “It’s not good for you to blow things up. I have already tried my best to help you get compensation. I hope that you can stop now. Speaking of which, although you don’t work for us anymore, I hope you can do well in other units.”
Let her stop now? Mentioning the next job at this time was not a simple consolation and blessing, but a slap to her face! Wu Man felt an inexplicable sadness in her chest. She was angry and helpless, but the director was right. It was not good for her to make a big fuss, and it might even affect her next job. There was no need to ruin her career just because she was angry. Moreover, she had been given N + 1 month’s worth of salary as compensation. Even so, it still made her feel unhappy.
“However, I still have to give you a piece of advice. Sometimes, a sentence that seems to be unintentional is actually a turning point in your future.” The director left this last sentence and did not say anything more to her. Instead, he invited her out of the office in a distant and polite manner.
Wu Man did not know how she left. She walked out of the door muddleheaded with the resignation letter in her hand. She walked to the empty stairwell and squatted down to hug herself tightly. How could she not understand the director’s words? He was clearly hinting to her that her words and actions had offended the Wang Corporation. It was Wang Jiaojiao who did not want her to continue working here!
She was just a small civil servant. How could the higher-ups of the company know about her? The only person she had offended was Wang Jiaojiao. Other than her, who else had such big means? However, she was the daughter of the Wang Corporation. If she were to make trouble at this time, it would undoubtedly be a dead end. Moreover, with her ability, it was impossible to shake Wang Jiaojiao and the Wang Corporation behind her.
After crying for an unknown amount of time, Wu Man finally accepted the fact that she had been fired from her workplace. She returned to the office that she used to stay in and simply put her things into a box. Wu Man left her workplace, but she did not know where to go, so she wandered aimlessly on the street.
Recalling her own life, Wu Man could not help but feel sad. She had studied hard for more than ten years, and it wasn’t easy for her to get into the civil service, yet it wasn’t as important as Wang Jiaojiao’s words. In terms of education, Wang Jiaojiao might not be as good as her. In terms of capital and means, however, Wang Jiaojiao was far better than her. So strong that she could easily dismiss her with a word, whereas she could only hug her things and cry helplessly on the street. Not only that, her father was still working under that evil person.
“Why are you making fun of me like this?” she could not help but mutter to herself. What did she do wrong to end up like this? Not only was her job gone, but even her father’s future was bleak. As the only source of income for the family, the burden of life fell on her father.
Anger and helplessness engulfed her body. She resisted the urge to break down and cry on the street. Wu Man took a deep breath and tried to calm herself down. Then, she dialed her friend’s number.. As soon as the call was connected, she said dryly, “Can you come out and keep me company?”
