2021: Blogging A-Z Challenge: Covid Craziness: H


Have you gotten your test done?” asked Arun, massaging his temple.
“I’ll get it done tomorrow Sir,” replied Deepak, coughing again.

Arun was exhausted. With 2 weeks to go for his exit, Deepak had stopped working, claiming illness. The new guy wasn’t up to speed yet. Arun sighed, wished him a speedy recovery and disconnected. Employee relations with employees on their way out was usually tiresome barring exceptions, but ever since Covid-19, the excuses came easier.

“Thanks Sir,” said Deepak, as he disconnected and switched his focus to his McDonald’s meal, ready for the next Netflix run of the day.
