Maxwell had not held a steady job in almost two years. Today was a big day, because he was going to a job interview that he felt good about. The secretary he had talked to on the phone sounded friendly and encouraging.

Maxwell was a typist. His fingers danced on the keyboard. However, his people skills were not nearly as good as his typing skills. Sometimes his mouth got in the way of his employment. At his last steady job, his boss had told him to start making coffee every morning. Maxwell laughed. "I'm not making coffee," he said. "It's not part of my job description."

"Read the employee manual again," his boss said. "Your job description is anything I say it is."

"That's a woman's job," said Maxwell. "Do it yourself."

His boss was still yelling as Maxwell walked out of the building. He felt great about telling off the boss. A few days later, the reality of not having a job hit home. He had to pay the rent and utility bills, and he had to eat. What was he going to do?

He thought about apologizing and asking for his job back. But how would that look? Then again, who cares how it looks when you're almost broke? After thinking about it for another week, he finally called his boss and apologized. His boss accepted his apology, but said that he had already hired a replacement.

Maxwell contacted a temporary job agency, which provided him enough occasional work to pay his bills. But none of the companies that he was sent to were hiring. So Maxwell was excited about finally getting an interview for a steady job.

Maxwell's drive to the interview was disappointing. The traffic was congested and the neighborhood looked rough. It took him 45 minutes to get there. The building was covered with graffiti.

The interview started 30 minutes late. Not bothering to apologize, the manager lit a cigarette and took a sip from his coffee cup. He leaned back in his chair and put his feet up on his desk. He asked Maxwell a lot of questions. Maxwell thought that each question was stupider than the preceding question. The final question was, "Where would you like to be 10 years from now?"

What does that have to do with typing? Maxwell wondered. Stupid questions from a rude man in a lousy neighborhood! Where would he like to be 10 years from now?

"Anywhere but this dump!" Maxwell said angrily, as he stood up and walked out.

Nhận việc này và đẩy nó đi

Maxwell không giữ nổi một công việc ổn định trong gần hai năm. Hôm nay là ngày trọng đại, vì anh sẽ đi phỏng vấn cho một công việc mà anh cảm thấy tốt. Thư ký mà anh nói chuyện qua điện thoại nghe có vẻ thân thiện và khuyến khích.

Maxwell là một người đánh máy. Những ngón tay của anh nhảy múa trên bàn phím. Dù sao, kỹ năng giao tiếp của anh lại không tốt như khả năng đánh máy của anh ta. Đôi khi cái miệng của anh chặn đường sự nghiệp của anh. Ở công việc ổn định cuối cùng, sếp của anh bảo anh bắt đầu pha cà phê mỗi sáng. Maxwell cười. "Tôi không pha cà phê," anh nói. "Đó không phải là phần việc của tôi trong bảng mô tả công việc."

"Hãy đọc bản hướng dẫn nhân viên lần nữa," sếp anh nói. "Bản mô tả công việc của anh là bất kỳ điều gì tôi nói."

"Đó là công việc của phụ nữ, Maxwell nói. "Tự ông làm lấy đi."

Sếp anh vẫn la khi Maxwell đi khỏi toà nhà. Anh cảm thấy tuyệt vời khi nói lại với Sếp. Vài ngày sau, sự thật của việc mất việc làm mới va chạm đến tâm. Anh phải trả tiền thuê và hoá đơn sử dụng, và anh phải ăn. Anh phải làm sao?

Anh nghĩ đến việc xin lỗi và xin lại công việc. Nhưng điều đó sẽ trông như thế nào? Và rồi, ai quan tâm đến việc nó trông như thế nào khi anh hầu như phá sản? Sau khi suy nghĩ về việc đó thêm một tuần, anh cuối cùng gọi cho sếp và xin lỗi. Sếp nhận lời xin lỗi của anh nhưng nói rằng ông đã thuê một người thay thế rồi.

Maxwell liên hệ một đại lý công việc tạm thời, cung cấp đủ cho anh công việc thỉnh thoảng để anh trả các hoá đơn. Nhưng không có công ty nào mà anh được gửi đến thuê người. Nên Maxwell phấn khởi khi cuối cùng có được một cuộc phỏng vấn cho công việc ổn định.

Chuyến lái xe của Maxwell đến nơi phỏng vấn thật thất vọng. Giao thông tắc nghẽn và xung quanh nhìn lởm chởm. Mất hết 45 phút anh mới đến nơi. Toà nhà phủ đầy tranh vẽ trên tường.

Cuộc phỏng vấn bắt đầu trễ 30 phút. Chẳng buồn xin lỗi, viên giám đốc châm xì gà và nhấp một ngụm cà phê trong tách. Ông dựa người vào thành ghế và đặt chân lên bàn. Ông hỏi Maxwell rất nhiều câu hỏi. Maxwell nghĩ là mỗi câu hỏi càng ngu ngốc hơn câu trước. Câu cuối là, "Anh thích ở đâu 10 năm nữa?"

Điều này có liên quan gì đến việc đánh máy? Maxwell tự hỏi. Câu hỏi ngu ngốc từ một người đàn ông thô lỗ trong một vùng tồi tàn! Anh thích ở đâu 10 năm nữa ư?

"Đâu cũng được ngoại trừ cái đống này!" Maxwell giân dữ nói, khi đứng dậy và bỏ đi.

Maxwell đã không giữ được một công việc ổn định trong gần hai năm. Hôm nay là một ngày quan trọng, vì anh sắp đi phỏng vấn cho một công việc mà anh cảm thấy vừa ý. Người thư ký anh nói chuyện trên thoại nghe thật thân thiện và đầy sự khích lệ.

Maxwell là một nhân viên đánh máy. Những ngón tay của anh nhảy múa trên bàn phím. Tuy nhiên, các kỹ năng về con người của anh không được tốt như kỹ năng đánh máy. Thỉnh thoảng lời ăn tiếng nói của anh lại gây trở ngại cho công việc. Ở công việc ổn định mới đây của anh, xếp bảo anh pha cà-phê mỗi buổi sáng. Maxwell cười ngất. "Tôi không pha cà phê đâu," anh nói. Đó không phải là phần việc trong bản miêu tả công việc của tôi."

"Cậu đọc lại cuốn sổ tay nhân viên cho tôi," xếp anh bảo. Mô tả công việc của cậu là bất cứ điều gì tôi ra lệnh."

"Đó là công việc của phụ nữ," Maxwell nói. "Xếp tự mình làm lấy đi."

Xếp của anh vẫn còn la hét khi Maxwell đi khỏi toà nhà. Anh cảm thấy rất tuyệt khi mắng nhiếc lại xếp. Một vài ngày sau đó, thực tế của chuyện không có việc làm đã tác động xấu đến gia đình anh. Anh phải trả tiền thuê nhà và các hoá đơn cần thiết, và anh cần phải ăn nữa chứ. Anh sẽ làm cái gì đây?

Anh suy nghĩ về chuyện xin lỗi và xin đi làm trở lại. Nhưng như thế thì trông thế nào nhỉ? Và như thế thêm một lần nữa, ai thèm quan tâm việc trông như thế nào khi bạn gần như khánh kiệt? Sau khi suy nghĩ về chuyện đó thêm một tuần nữa, cuối cùng anh gọi cho xếp và xin lỗi. Xếp anh chấp nhận lời xin lỗi của anh, nhưng bảo rằng ông vừa thuê được người thay thế.

Maxwell liên hệ với trung tâm giới thiệu việc làm tạm thời, là nơi thỉnh thoảng cung cấp việc làm để anh thanh toán các hoá đơn. Nhưng không có công ty nào nơi anh được gởi đến chịu tuyển dụng cả. Vì thế Maxwell lo lắng khi cuối cùng cũng nhận được buổi hẹn gặp phỏng vấn cho một công việc ổn định.

Cuộc lái xe của Maxwell để đi phỏng vấn thật chán ngán. Giao thông thì kẹt cứng và khu dân cư nhìn có vẻ nghèo khó. Phải mất 45 phút anh mới đến được đó. Toà nhà bị che phủ bởi những tranh vẽ nguệch ngoạc trên tường.

Cuộc phỏng vấn bắt đầu trễ 30 phút. Không quan tâm đến việc xin lỗi, viên giám đốc châm một điếu thuốc và nhấp một ngụm cà phê trong cái tách. Ông ta ngã người ra sau chiếc ghế và để hai chân lên trên bàn giấy. Ông ta hỏi Maxwell rất nhiều câu hỏi. Maxwell nghĩ rằng mỗi câu hỏi ngớ ngẩn hơn các câu hỏi trước. Câu hỏi cuối cùng là, "Kể từ bây giờ anh thích mình được ở đâu trong 10 năm tới?"

"Chuyện đó có dính dáng gì đến việc đánh máy chứ? Mawwell tự hỏi. Những câu hỏi ngu ngốc từ một người đàn ông bất lịch sự trong một khu dân cư tệ hại! "Kể từ bây giờ anh thích mình được ở đâu trong 10 năm tới sao?"

"Ở đâu cũng được ngoại trừ cái đống rác này!" Maxwell nói một cách giận dữ, lúc anh đứng dậy và bước ra ngoài.
