Author:
Characters:
The salaryman: A32 year old man. Working as a chief of a small team in a company. His dream isto buy his own apartment.
The BOSS: An oldman. Establishes his business kingdom with his own struggle.
(It is in thesalary man’s company at the morning. Salaryman is typing a laptop. He isworking, of course.)
(One chair, onetable, one laptop and the salaryman at the left stage. While the road roller atthe center stage.)
(From the leftstage. The salaryman’s boss “BOSS” walks in. His pace is rapid.)
S: Good morning, boss.(raise his head to look at the boss then look back to the laptop screenquickly.)
B: Morning, salaryman. (Didn’ttake one look at salaryman, straightly walks into his office, sit down.)
S: Would you like to have somecoffee?
B: Sure.
(BOSS takes outhis phone and begin reading, while the salaryman get down the stage, then goback with newly made coffee.)
S: Hot, careful.
B: Thanks. (Takes the coffee andsip a bit, still didn’t look at the salaryman)
S: You’re welcome, boss. Now Ishall back to work.
B: Holdon, salaryman.          
S: Yes, boss. What may I offerassistance?
B: What do you think of soybeans?
S: Soybeans? You mean the recentlyskyrocketing price of soybeans?
B: Yes. You are smart, indeed. Few canknow what I am talking from only single word.
S: (Laugh withshrugging) Thank you boss.Although the insane price of soybeans is still rising, the rising speed isgetting slower, and soon the soaring will come to a halt. Stocking the soybeansmight risk too much and is no longer a worthy investment.
B: That’s what I think so. Peoplealways telling me that I should follow the investment trend or listen to theexperts, they don’t know there are many things only those who have overcame bythemselves will know. Now, you make my belief more uncompromising. The greatminds think alike, don’t they?
S: This is overpraised, boss. I amnot great.
B: Of course you are! You are smarter,you are more diligent, you are really good at communicating. All of these makesyou a great employee…
S: I am not great, boss. Thegreater person, the greater position. I am no great man, I am just a salaryman.
B: (Unfriendlyfrowns) What do you mean,salaryman?
S: (Panic) Sorry, I didn’t mean to… I thinkI should back to work.
B: WAIT. (stands up) Seems you are veryunsatisfied with your current position, don’t you?
S: I don’t…
B: No lies before your boss.
S: …Alright. In fact, I always wantto climb up onto a better position, not just being a salaryman. You are rightboss, I don’t feel satisfied.
B: I know. I can totally understand,that’s just what I feel when I am still as young as now you are. So I can tellyou for sure that you will have a better future, just like me.
S: I believe so. But I reallywonder --- when will it be?
B: Chances don’t arrive at your will.You need patience.
S: I think I am very patient. Toopatient I am.
B: Then why do you complain about this?
S: You do know my CV, boss. I thinkyou remember that before I work in this company, I have already worked inanother company for 6 years. Time have gone so long, but my promotion havenever been promoted. Both the 2 companies only promote me until the level of agroup chief, even though I have sacrificed my all things to my company.
B: You are just not lucky enough. Andyou have to know that the men above you are all more capable than you.
S: Then why are you keep asking methings about investment instead of those “men above me.” Or you can just hire aprofessional consultant. Actually, my boss, not just investment, you seek myadvice in every aspect. The professional knowledges that I offer are alreadymore superior than those “above” ones can give you, and far more than mypositon, my duties. I deserve a better position.
B: Let me ask you, salaryman. Why wouldyou offer your consultation to me?
S: Because it is your request, myboss.
B: Since those are not your duties, notyour position suppose to do, what I am doing are illegal, not in the contract,right? Then, why don’t you just refuse me?
S: …Because you are my boss, and Iwant this job.
B: That’s right! Everyone, includes theyounger me, do what their boss ask them to do, even it is irrational, just tokeep their precious job. Thus, I see no point in your complaint.
S: But the reason I do this isbecause I think there is hope that after all these efforts, my boss willfinally promote me…
B: Who says I won’t promote you?
S: No one. But it have been fouryears, and I do show my ability, don’t I? Isn’t it too long to wait four…
B: Four? You think that is “long?” Iknow you left your previous company because you think there was no possibilityto be promoted in there, but don’t you think you are just arrogant? Many men,better than you, suffered all the conditions you have told, and have withstoodform them. 8 years, 12 years, even 20 years of waiting a promotion is not rare.Why do you think yourself so special?
S: I am 32 now. 40, 44, 52… Whenshould I buy a car? When should I buy a house? When should I get married?
My salary is only enough for my daily meals, my apartmentrent, my transport fare. I have no money left to deposit. If I am really thatdumb, that lazy, I should accept this, but… (weeps) but I am not. I…
B: (Interrupt) I think, it is enough for thesenonsense. What you complain about are also the irritation of every young manlike you. You, are not the only one. You, shouldn’t complain about this. Theway I see, a worthy man should have never complain about this. Those whocomplained, are even not worthy to be called a man.
(the salaryman stands still, weeping without crying)
B: C’mon, stop spinning your wheels. Time to go back towork. (boss sits back to theseat.)
S: Heh… Indeed, not a mancomplains. (walking slowly and depressed back to his seat) And I am truly, noman.
