Fandango Story Starter # 11
Peeking through the window, her surprise turned to horror when…
Tim was indecisive about his next step. He asked Dora for advice regarding his decision. Dora, practical and pragmatic as ever told him that relocating to another city was not wise. He may be getting a fancy job title, but the pay and benefits weren’t great. And the cost of moving would offset any advantage he might have.
After having a long discussion, Tim agreed with her and decided to reject the new job offer and stick to the one he had for the last 5 years.
So it came as a great shock to her when he came home the next day and informed her that he had resigned from his current job and would be traveling the next day to join the new job.
“And what about the discussion we had?” she ask, irritated.
“I did a rethink and took advice from a friend, who told me that this offer is too good to miss!” Said, Tim
“Well, in that case, you will be responsible for all expenses and botheration of moving. I’ll join you when you have set up the new house” Dora replied and stomped out of the room.
