Salary woes

Secret diary of a first time employee in my company.

Dear Diary,

Today I got my first salary. I am now bankrupt. Amma said I must give my first salary to the temple. Now I have no money but it doesn’t matter as I have borrowed from my colleague to get through this month.

Dear Diary,

Today I got my second salary. I am bankrupt again. Amma says I must buy something for Grandma and Grandpa, Uncles, Aunts, Nephews, Nieces, and Cousins etc. Thank god Tea and Coffee is free in my office.

Dear Diary,

I got my third salary today. Today I had to treat my school friends, college friends, hostel friends, Cricket club friends etc. I will borrow again to get through this month.

Dear Diary,

Living on bananas and bread is tiring. But I cannot afford proper food yet. This month I have to go to our ancestral village and feed people at our ancestral temple. That will be my first proper meal in two months.

Dear Diary,

I got my fourth salary today. I have nothing left after paying for the money I borrowed for the first month. So I am applying for a Credit Card.

Dear Diary,

I am in hiding.
