“Hi, may I help” Gu Ning asked.
“Oh, miss, are you working for this company as well” The old man smiled kindly at Gu Ning.
“Yeah, who are you looking for Perhaps I can help you.” Gu Ning said, “Its very cold outside.
Why dont we go in”
“No, no, Im too dirty.
I dont think I should go in, but would you please help me find a person” The old man refused to go in at once.
He was from a poor countryside and was dirty everywhere.
He didnt want to dirty Gu Nings beautiful company.
Lets go in now!” said Gu Ning.
Although the old man was a little dirty, Gu Ning didnt care.
If this old man had a choice, Gu Ning believed that he wouldnt wear dirty, thin clothes.
There must be a reason for it.
“No need, thanks,” said the old man.
Come on, lets go in,” said Gu Ning and went to pull the old man.
Seeing that, the old man immediately avoided her.
“Miss, Im dirty.
You shouldnt touch me.
I dont want to dirty your hand.
Ill just follow you.”
The old man didnt want to dirty such a clean young girl, so he stood away from her.
When Gu Ning insisted on taking him inside, he accepted her kindness.
All of a sudden, Gu Ning felt sad.
She took the old man to the hall of her company.
On the way, she asked, “May I know the name of the person youre looking for”
“Im searching for my son.
His name is Ma Lequan, but I dont know which department hes in,” said the old man.
Hearing that, Gu Ning slightly frowned.
If the old mans son was working for the Shengning Organization, his son should have a high salary.
Why didnt his son buy thick clothes for him in such a cold winter
Was there another reason
“Did you contact him before you came here” Gu Ning asked.
Hearing that, the old man seemed a little embarrassed.
“I lost my phone and I cant remember his phone number, so I could only wait here.”
Ill take you in to rest for a while.
Ill help you find him,” said Gu Ning.
“Thank you so much, miss.
Youre really a good girl.” The old man was grateful and excited.
Gu Ning took the old man in and all the staff respectfully greeted her.
The old man didnt know why they all called her Chairman Gu, but he could see that they were very respectful of her.
He thought that this girl might have an important position in the company, but he didnt ask.
Gu Ning took the old man to have a seat on the sofa.
The old man didnt dare to sit down at first, because the sofa was too clean, but he listened to Gu Ning after she persuaded him to sit down.
Afterwards, Gu Ning ordered a staff member to pour the old man a glass of warm water, then she walked to the reception.
“Hi, Chairman Gu.” Once Gu Ning walked closer, the receptionist smiled at her.
“Which department is Ma Lequan working in Tell him that his fathers here,” said Gu Ning.
“No problem, Chairman Gu,” said the receptionist.
She immediately found out which department Ma Lequan worked in, then called him.
“What My father is in the company now What is he doing here” Ma Lequan was very displeased when he heard that his father came.
Hearing Ma Lequans tone, Gu Ning frowned, so did the receptionist.
His attitude was really bad.
However, they were outsiders, so they couldnt judge.
“Where is he now” Ma Lequan asked.
“In the hall,” said the receptionist.
Her voice wasnt as gentle as just now, and had become a little cold.
“Tell him to wait outside.
Im coming down,” said Ma Lequan, then hung up on the receptionist.
The receptionist turned to look at Gu Ning with mixed emotions.
“Chairman Gu, Ma Lequan said hes coming down, but he told me to tell his father to wait outside.”
The receptionist was mad, because it was so cold outside.
How could Ma Lequan tell his father to wait outside His father only wore thin clothes, and it must be very uncomfortable for him to wait outside.
Exactly because his father had waited outside for too long, Chairman Gu brought the old man in.
Speaking of that, Gu Ning was a really good boss.
People nowadays mostly stayed away from the poor and tried to form a close relationship with the rich.
If other rich people saw Ma Lequans father in thin and shabby clothes, they might take him as a beggar and chase him away.
It was impossible for them to take him in.
Because of that, the receptionist admired Gu Ning very much.
In fact, the staff working in the Shengning Organization had high salaries.
Even the receptionists were paid more than those in other companies.
Ma Lequan was in the planning and marketing department, and his salary was more than fifteen thousand yuan, but he was such a terrible son that he refused to buy better and warmer clothes for his father!
“No need, just wait in the hall,” said Gu Ning.
She was also slightly angered by Ma Lequans attitude.
However, before she figured out the reason why Ma Lequan treated his father so badly, she couldnt jump to conclusions.
Perhaps Ma Lequan was guilty, but there might be a problem with his father.
Ma Lequans father could have done something bad before, to cause Ma Lequan to hate his father now.
Therefore, Gu Ning didnt go upstairs right away.
She decided to learn more about the situation before taking action.
In order to not let Ma Lequan see her and hide his real attitude, Gu Ning went to stand by the reception after telling the old man that Ma Lequan was coming down.
Gu Ning had no intention of minding other peoples business, but she had to do something if she found such a terrible person working in her company.
Before long, Ma Lequan came down.
Once he walked into the hall, he saw his father sitting in the seating area.
In an instant, he was filled with displeasure and looked mad.
After that, he immediately walked to his father.
Standing in front of his father, he questioned angrily, “Didnt I tell the receptionist to let you wait outside”
The old man was embarrassed when he faced Ma Lequan.
He stood up at once and carefully said, “The girl told me to wait here.
She didnt tell me to go out.”
Hearing that, Ma Lequan wanted to vent his anger on the receptionist, but he didnt do that right now.
He only told his father to leave and said that they would have a talk outside.
This time, Gu Ning didnt stop them, but she followed them when they went out..
