The Debt

Rumors are moving around about how a Network Personality (NP) incurred debts via gambling online. Allegedly, NP started borrowing from colleagues and requested them to make his requests in confidence. NP did not want to be embarrassed. Lucky for NP, the colleagues who lent him did not ask the reason for his borrowing. They thought they were doing a good deed, as the pandemic has changed the financial standing of fellow workers. What was important for them was that they were helping NP. They had no idea that NP had asked most of them as well. They trusted NP and his word of honor to pay them back as soon as he resumes work.

The debts accumulated and NP had already thought of ways to skip paying his friends. He thought of running away, but his fate changed when a project was offered to him. Before his project could materialize, NP asked a Top Head (TH) if he could get his payment up front. TH agreed and NP received full payment. The project did not deliver as expected and NP had spent the amount given to him. However, NP knew he still had a next project and proceeded to ask TH to advance his pay.

While on the first project, co-workers noticed NP’s coming late and lack of energy. The co-workers had no idea that NP’s request was turned down. The behavior of NP reached TH, who had a heart-to-heart talk with him. NP was reminded that he already received full pay and he has to work for that. Of course, NP denied the speculation and assumed His Supervisors (HS) placed him in bad light. Subsequently, NP could not rely on an amiable relationship with HS.

HS allegedly proposed to drop NP if his attitude does not change, as other talents are waiting for work. Meanwhile, NP has not cleared his debts with his colleagues and his next project is in jeopardy.
