CEO the Office boy and Taha Hussien

The CEO (being myself) entered the small kitchenette in our office, I found our young office boy indulged reading an old and dirty 500 page paperback torn book. I normally have short humorous chat with young Ala’a. I sometimes feel sorry for him as he works real hard while having a limited revenue. To be quite honest, this time I felt sorry for myself, the guy was reading the Al-Ayyam master piece for Taha Hussien http://www.sis.gov.eg/egyptinf/culture/html/thussein.htm
During the course of my life, I was aware of Al-ayyam because we had to read about for our school exams. Never me or anyone of my peers ever looked at it beyond a potential answer for some exam question. The bottom line is, I felt an immense urge to read the book. The CEO ended up borrowing the book from a person i tended not take seriously

Mr CEO

Being CEO does not mean that you knw everything and nobody else does. You seem to be outraged by the fact that somebody else knew what you did not

mr. ammar :
i think that sometimes we need to open both our eyes and hearts to see the qualities of some people around us,other people don not take such effort , they are recognized where ever they go , and beleive me that coffe boy (he is not aboy , he is a young man), is from the second type, he is so special person.........
