FELIX S FIRST DAY AT SYARIKAT FANTASIA


Felix began his first day at Syarikat Fantasia with some trepidation. It was such a huge place. He had reported to the Administration office which was positioned conveniently at the main door. One of the officers there had taken down his personal particulars and sent him straight to the Marker Research department where he was to be employed as a trainee officer. When they got there the head of department was on leave and the office was almost deserted as a major survey being carried out by the staff which required them to go outstation. Felix was shown to a desk which obviously belonged to another officer and told to read some magazines and brochures until the head of the department came to brief him

FELIX S FIRST DAY AT SYARIKAT FANTASIA


The next morning the manger arrived very early and was surprised to find Felix already at his desk. She was also a bit shocked because Felix clothing looked crumpled and somehow he did not seem as smart as he had been during the interview She walked over to Felix and said, Good morning. Im Fatimah, the head of Market Research. You are here very early. Felix looked sheepish and replied, actually, Im not really early, I slept here in the office last night Fatimah was atounded. Why did you do that?? Felix admitted his problem. Last night I could not find the exit. All the doors led to other offices or cupboards so in the end I had no choice. I slept on the floor
