Honesty and freedom at work
- My colleagues seem to be always taking breaks. At first it annoyed me, but they just tell insist that I have to take more and longer breaks! I definitelly have to work harder towards my integration!
- Last tuesday I went for a job interview. I have learnt that it is ok to tell the truth at work, so when I told my colleagues that I had to leave for an interview at 11, and that I'd be back at 1330, they wished me good luck!
- It took longer, and as I walked from the interview venue to the street, I felt the sun on my skin, the soft breeze, this lazzyness... I felt like not going back to work. I phoned work and asked if it was ok to have free the rest of the day. "Off course, Nyabetse! See you tomorrow." I need not to mention that this would be just a dream in Maputo, I would have had to make up an excuse not to return to work that day!
