That day I felt so excited that I couldn’t wait for my husband to return from work. I couldn’t believe that I would now join the women who live in my neighborhood to hurry every morning to work. Ever since we married and moved to that neighborhood, neighbors have been asking questions about what I do for a living. At a time, a rumor went out that I was an uneducated housewife. I don’t know who started the rumor but one thing I was sure of was that the rumor really spread far to the extent ladies from 2-3 streets away would point fingers as I walked past. Well, I felt they were all jealous because of my looks. I never allowed my been unemployed stop me from dressing well and even better that the other women in my neighborhood so, that made me conclude easily that they were only been jealous.
Worse off I had the greatest heap to finish so I stayed really late compared to others. On seeing this and considering the fact that I was married, my boss decided to stay back till I finished so he could drop me off. Of course I was very grateful so, I hurried on my job till I was done and then I went over to his office to let him know that I was ready to go.
