At last he was late
His name is John (real name was not written), He smokes as many fags as a human can smoke in night shift.. He always used to smoke in the entrance and was fined twice for throwing fags in street…….which I liked the most when I learnt about it…..
To curb littering specially smoker Scottish Government has special arrangement using council vehicle with CCTV fitted with them acting as spy vehicle. They just rest like a lion hiding in bushes waiting for its prey. High resolution camera attached on it pole coming out of it middle bit ;they park in middle of street and wait for ages until you finish your fag and end up caught red handed . So no one could be happier than me to learn he was fined twice for doing same thing.
Cleaners at work tell me his stories; his bungalow and his wealth in Asia in a tourist country. Which he happily shared with female cleaners? He never smiles in his life and had bitter relationship with other young colleague. Paul is his colleague like me he does not like him either. Paul once had his recording in which he was talking to someone on his phone clearly racially abusing one of our other colleagues in his absence. That guy was from Africa. I witnessed their relation quite friendly during their formal workplace chat. It was shock to me. However I and Paul just ignored it.
I was at home around 8 o clocks I received call to cover a shift as someone never turned up on his work. I found it amazing to learn that it’s him who never turned up. I was also happy and bit curious too as how on earth this guy could ever turn late? or never came to work ?
Next day I was also called to cover him, in the night someone asked me where is he? I just said he may be dead nice person he was without knowing just as a fun. Next morning I found I was told he was found dead on his sofa in house, obviously cardiac arrest was reason behind his death. Only Death had stopped him not turning up. He died but had developed more respect for him in my heart.
We all were upset and everybody including me was shocked, I was not amazed at all death is most bitter truth we all have to face regardless of our characters. His colleague who had his secret recording was signing Ding Dong Witch is Dead and a song I only came to knew after the death of late Iron Lady………………………………………Your thoughts…………
