七十二行: 寫字楼後生 (二) / 72 Occupations: Office Boy (Part 2)

(二) 打工仔的生涯

有一次我問阿Don,大老細是「火麒麟」董事,当然他叫到,我們就要做,但鄧勤和唐老是「海利」僱員,不是我們波士老闆 Boss Men,我就不需要和他們 Yes Sir! 前,Yes Sir! 後。阿Don 年紀約比我大八年,在「火麒麟」做了近四年,对做人処世經驗,当然比我這個入世未深的反叛青年多。『在香港這個社会,』阿Don 解釋,『有財就是有勢,你和我是做白領階級謀生,朝九晚五,但求一日三歺,年脕双糧,打工仔的生涯,逆來順受,說多声 Yes Sir! Yes Sir! 又有什么關係。』我雖然不同意這個為五斗米而折腰的理論,但也明白阿Don 的処境,他是個有上進心的人,很想往北美留學,但家庭兄弟姊妹多,父母只能供他至中五,之後就要他綴學,做工賺錢回家,幫補入息。阿Don 日間返公司捱,夜晚就上夜校讀,都是為了實現他出洋留學的願望。

For general issues, I don't mind saying "yes". However, when it comes to right and wrong, I always insist.

Ruth: Definitely, values and ethics are very important to me as well.

Back then, I did not agree with Don's approach but could appreciate his situation.
