Owner fires waitress who sheltered dog at cafe, washes floor of own vet clinic later – Today’s story


No one is going to hire me now! A young girl said to herself after her boss fired her. She was poor and desperate for a job to make ends meet, but little did she know that the man who fired her would soon be working for her.

Kelly was an energetic young woman, an animal lover, and a kind human. She enjoyed spending time with cats and dogs at animal shelters and bought them treats once a month.

After the death of her parents, the 24-year-old was unable to continue her studies at university. Instead, she gave up halfway and worked as a waitress at a local restaurant to make ends meet.

Her salary didn’t allow her to afford luxuries, but whenever she saved up a few dollars at the end of the month, she used them to buy dog ​​treats. The young woman thrived on watching her furry friend’s eyes light up with joy every time she fed them.

One day Kelly was at work when she saw a dog sitting outside the restaurant while it was snowing. ” Oh my God ! He must be cold! Kelly said as she rushed outside to see him.

“What happened to you?” Kelly ruffled the dog’s fur and realized he was cold. “I’ll take you inside with me.”

Without thinking what his manager would say, Kelly brought the dog inside the restaurant and wrapped his jacket around him to make him feel warm. She also gave him snacks she had bought for her dogs at the shelter.

“You’re fired! Don’t bother coming to work tomorrow!”

As she fed her new furry friend, her manager, Luke, who also owned the restaurant, stood in front of her and crossed his arms over his chest.

“What do you think you are doing here?” he asked sternly.

“That dog was freezing in the snow outside, sir,” Kelly explained. “I brought him to make him feel better.”

“Is that why I hired you?” Luke asked angrily.

“No, sir. But…”

“I’m tired of hiring waitresses like you who don’t pay attention to their work!”

“I’ll drop him off at the animal shelter, sir. Don’t worry,” Kelly assured him.

“I don’t care what you do with that dirty street dog!” Luke growled. “You’re fired! Don’t bother coming to work tomorrow!”

Kelly was shocked that Luke fired her because she saved a dog from death. She desperately needed a job to make ends meet, but it seemed like she had to look for another now.

“I’ll make sure other restaurateurs don’t hire you!” Luke shouted.

“Not even to wash the floors!”

Kelly looked at him in disbelief. “I’m sorry, sir,” she apologized.

“You don’t deserve to be trusted! I’ll use my contacts to make sure no one hires you!” He shouted. “PERSON!”

Later that day, Kelly dropped the dog off at the local shelter and returned home disappointed. She lost her job when she needed the money the most and had no idea what she would do next.

“I’m sure no one will hire me as a waitress because of Luke!” she said. “He has a strong network in the industry.”

The next day, Kelly woke up and visited the nearby animal shelter. She thought spending time with animals would make her feel better.

While she was playing with the dogs, the manager told her about a job offer.

“Kelly, do you know anyone who would like to work here with our dogs?” He asked. “We offer a generous salary for this position and some benefits too.”

At that time, Kelly thought fate was giving her a chance to work again.

“Yes, I think I know someone who would like to work here!”

Later that day, Kelly came home smiling because the animal shelter manager had hired her for a full-time position. She no longer had to worry about looking for a job. However, she had no idea that her new job would lead her to meet the man of her dreams.

A few days after Kelly started working at the shelter, she noticed a handsome man who frequently volunteered there. One day she approached him and told him she was working there.

“I see you coming here every weekend,” Kelly smiled. “What’s your name?”

“I am Simon,” the man said. “I think spending time with these adorable dogs heals me on the inside. It helps me de-stress after spending five days a week at my workplace.”

Soon Kelly and Simon became friends. Once they realized they had similar interests and enjoyed each other’s company, they thought about dating.

After months of dating, Kelly realized that even though Simon was from a wealthy family, he didn’t like taking his father’s money. He worked hard to earn money, just like her.

“Why don’t you move in with me, Kelly?” Simon asked one day. He knew she had no family and living alone was not easy. “We can share expenses and save money for our purpose.”

“You mean our goal of opening a veterinary clinic?” Kelly asked enthusiastically. “I didn’t know you were serious about it.”

“I’m very serious about this, Kelly!” he exclaimed.

After the couple moved in together, they worked multiple jobs and saved up the money they needed to start their own clinic. It took them a year to save their goal amount.

However, before they could start their clinic, they decided to get married. Kelly didn’t have many guests on her side except a few friends, while Simon invited his parents and friends from school and college.

The couple had a surprise on their wedding day that changed their lives. Simon’s father announced that he would provide funds for their new clinic as a wedding present, which meant they could now open a much larger facility.

“Thank you for buying my restaurant, Simon,” Luke smiled.

“Thank you very much, dad! Simon hugged his father. “I have never taken money from you, but I will accept this amount because you are giving it to us as a wedding present.”

“Yes thank you very much!” Kelly smiles.

A few weeks after their wedding, Kelly and Simon began looking for a space they could purchase for their clinic. As Kelly was browsing ads online, she found one from her ex-employer.

“Luke is selling his restaurant? she stared at her laptop screen with her eyes wide open. “I think I should talk to Simon about it.”

After Kelly told Simon about the restaurant, he went there to talk to Luke and learned that he was selling his restaurant space due to unprofitability.

Once Simon negotiated the price a bit and Luke agreed, he made a deal and promised to transfer the money the next day.

“Thank you for buying my restaurant, Simon,” Luke smiled. “I have a request.”

“Sure, what is it?” asked Simon.

“Well, my financial situation hasn’t been the best for the past few months,” Luke explained.

“Can you hire me as an administrator here?” »

Luke thought Simon bought his restaurant because he wanted to open his own. The man had no idea that Simon wanted to open a veterinary clinic.

“Of course, Luke,” Simon said. “I think you will be a good candidate for the role of administrator in our clinic.”

“Your clinic? asked Luke. “I thought you were opening a restaurant.”

“My wife and I have decided to open a veterinary clinic, Luke. It’s our dream project!”

“You’re going to ruin this place!” Luke shouted. “I built this place with so much effort! And you’re going to rebuild it and put animals here? That’s crazy!”

Simon gave him a surprised look because he didn’t know why Luke was angry. “Are you sure you want to sell me this space? »

Since Luke was bankrupt and had to pay his debts, he had no choice but to sell his restaurant and work at the veterinary clinic as an administrator.

“I’m sorry,” Luke said. “I want to sell my restaurant and work as an administrator here. It’s a market.”

On the first day of work, Luke arrived at the veterinary clinic on time. He was sitting at his desk when he suddenly saw a familiar face in the hallway.

“Hi, Luke,” Kelly smiled at him.

“Kelly? he gave her a confused look.

“Yes, that’s me. I worked at your restaurant as a waitress,” Kelly said. “But it looks like the tables have turned.”

“Do you remember what you said to me on my last day?” she asked him.

“Well, I guess you’re going to have to clean the floor today because the cleaning lady we hired won’t be joining us until two days later.”

She’s my boss now? Luke thought and looked at the floor as he realized he had been too mean to Kelly. He was her employer in the past, but now she ordered him to clean the floor.

“I’m so sorry I fired you, Kelly,” he apologized. “I know I was arrogant back then, but you taught me a lesson I will remember forever.”
