“Chris, it’s either I quit or I work for the both of you,” you argued. Having two jobs while going to school would be tough to handle, but you were sure that you would get used to it. Plus, having another job could help with the bills and then some.
“But why him? Of all people?”
“He asked me to work for him. Simon and I… We know each other. I told him that I couldn’t just leave this place. You gave me a job when I first moved here, Chris. So, I told him the same thing. Either I work for the both of you or I don’t work at all.”
Chris sighed, “But I get you for more hours than he does.”
“Well, yes, but let’s not tell him that,” you smiled.
“How is it going to be split up then?”
“I’ll work here weekends because I know it’s the busiest. The rest, I’ll work for him.”
“So, you’re telling me you’ll be working three days out of the week for me and the rest for him? How is that fair, [Y/N]?”
“Are you forgetting that I need a day off, Chris? It’s split evenly. Three days for you. Three days for Simon. I’ll work for him Monday through Wednesday and Thursday through Saturday for you.”
Chris narrowed his eyes. “You’re lucky we’re even negotiating this. If it were any of my employees, I would have let them go without having this conversation.”
“It isn’t too late, you know. You can fire me,” you grinned.
“Oh, and what? Let Simon have all the business? Yeah right. I’d be stupid if I did that,” Chris sighed. “So, today’s Monday…”
You nodded, “I’ll be across the street. This will work out. Trust me.”
“Oh, I trust you. It’s not you that I’m worried about… It’s Simon.”
