''God bless man, have a great day.''
''You too,'' As I smile and put the phone to my ear,
My boss fills my ear with excitement, ''How's my new CFO?''
''Are you serious?'' in shock.
''Yes. I don't joke in this industry.''
''Wow, thank you so much sir, you won't regret your decision.''
''Make sure to be in the office for your first day tomorrow.''
''You bet I will thank you''
I make my way back to my apartment and walk up the stairs and as I walk up I see a huge package in front of my door step. I bring it into my apartment and put it on my coffee table and grab a knife to open it. As I start to open the package I hear a knock on my door. I look through the peep hole in my door and see another package, I pull it into my apartment and leave it on the floor and finish opening the other package. Thoughts are crossing through my mind as I open it, there's a bunch of paper in it I look through and pull out keys.
Keys? Hmm, I wonder what they're for. Looking all over the box I see a label that says ''See you tomorrow. -Boss''. Then I look at the other box it's not as big so I'm thinking what could it be. It says fragile so I have no idea, I start opening it and again more paper I dig around and find a note ''One day success will come.'' The box has no label I put the note down and look at the time and whoa is it getting late. I clean up the paper and boxes and get into bed. As I'm lying in bed I start thinking about how my life is going to change. Before I was making 15 dollars an hour, and now I will be making 150 dollars an hour. With that kind of money I will need a new house, hey maybe even a car. I close my eyes and fall asleep.
''Knock knock, hello anyone home??''
''Yeah I'm coming'' As I stumble out of bed I run to the door and open it.
''Hi'' I say with a big yawn.
'' Here you go.''
It’s an envelope about rent being do. I laugh and throw it away. I make my way to the bathroom, shower, brush my teeth, make a blow of cereal and sit on my couch and start watching the news
''On the Morning News, today's story will be about the 5th avenue dog that was hit and brought back to life''
Wow, finally something good on the news, I get dressed and walk out onto the street and see a limo with a sign ''Mark''. I get in the back seat and roll the window down and just think back to the times of taking the taxi, people yelling at me, construction and just think could get any better than this. I get out of the limo and walk into the main lobby and two beautiful girls walked me to my new office. I had the keys from the package the night before, I get to the office right before even going into it, it already looked amazing seeing huge doors and with my name on the side. It was everything I've ever dreamed of. After that one day things were great, I bought a new apartment and a $400,000 dollar Lamborghini, but things weren't as great as they seemed. About a year after the promotion things just went horribly wrong. After I feel into a deep depression and got addicted to cocaine. Ever hear of the saying "money can't buy happiness"? Well it can't buy happiness for life just for a small amount of time, but it can't buy it forever, I learned that the hard way. Money ruined my life.
