Goin' the Extra..aaamile

…and if anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the second mile

Do you wanna partner?

Finding your husband in a boss…?

I’m not sure if its a thing in the country you live in… but at least in the place I live in, it is quite a regular thing.
The office receptionist or the ‘office girl’ as they refer to it in India, could well turn out to be the boss’s wife in a few years down the line.

So how does it work?

A girl comes for an interview, if she’s lucky enough, she gets selected; hopefully more for her work ethics than her looks.

Her duties in the workplace (read as Internet cafe’s, bakeries, ice-cream joints, book-shops etc..) would include handling cash inflow, interacting with customers and keeping the business up and running, coz who are we kidding? We all know to run a successful business, an attractive/semi-attractive female is required to welcome its customers right?
(read: men [big spenders]) She gets the customers coming in, the boss is happy and the cash register is constantly ringing. “Jackpot”, the boss thinks.. his heart begins to get warmer for his ‘right selection’ and decides to give a promotion to his ‘once upon a time staff-girl’ to now ‘wife’ status – just like that.

Boss’s have hearts too… right? what if their approach is different?

The purpose of this post is not to objectify women or anything of that sort, but to make ‘YOU’ aware – that a simple job offer could land a girl an unwanted husband. Beware of the ‘single’ boss, or as some people put it… the word ‘Single’ is just a word… more times than not, it is the state of the mind of a man. If he’s extra nice to you… who knows! You may be unaware BUT you’re on his trial period on what he’s actually looking out for – ‘a future wife’.

A simple job may just turn out to be a future family business!

Talk of different ways to find your life partner. While finding love at the work-place is the most common way of meeting your true love, some people have other unconventional ways of finding their love-mates.

I think I’ve seen enough to know the lengths people would go to getting what they want.

I haven’t had the privilege of working under a woman boss.. but I would believe it’s a different & better situation there? Or if I have to go by the Bollywood movie I watched (namely Aitraaz) wherein the woman boss is portrayed as aggressive (Priyanka Chopra), would make me think that women are equal to men in that area? or is it just in the movies?

    I have seen this only in daily soaps actually. Not heard of office girl marrying a boss atleast around my circle. If it can be really beneficial to both of them considering the practical aspects of life, i think it’s fine.
