Dante looked at the mail he had to deliver today with a sigh.

Back in the Philippines, his dad was the local postmaster and wanted him to take over his job when he retired.

“What’s more can you ask for?” his traditional father said. “It offers job security and you don’t have to leave town.”

But Dante had other ideas. He wanted to try his wings and pursue the American dream.

In a strange twist of fate, he ended up working for the post office. It was the best job he could get to establish himself in the new country.

“Mom, why does Billy stay in the bathroom more often and longer than he used to?” his little sister Anna asked. “His voice has changed too.”

Living in a big family, the bathroom had become Billy’s refuge. It was the only place where he could be alone in peace and quiet until the knocks on the door became persistent.

As puberty hit and his voice started to croak, the bathroom had played more role in his journey to self-discovery.

“What’s the matter with him? Anna continued. “Is he sick or something?”

“Don’t worry about it, Pumpkin. He’s a growing boy.””

Regularly scheduled programming was interrupted by a special news bulletin of a self-styled guru being rushed to the hospital.

Initial reports indicated that he experienced chest pains while indulging with a second helping of his favorite steak.

An hour later, the doctor who attended to him reported that he only suffered heartburn. It brought relief to thousands of his followers who believed that his death would signal the end of the world.

No doubt about it, seeing their guru on TV smiling and flashing the thumbs up was enough motivation to keep donations flowing to his ashram and life’s mission.

It was a job he hated. Still, it hit him hard when he lost it due to company restructuring.

Dark clouds looming on the horizon, he thought of jumping off from the building. The proceeds from his life insurance would provide for the family for awhile.

But he was such a coward. It required a lot of courage to commit suicide.

He elected to go home instead.

“I have bad news,” he told his wife. “I lost my job today.”

“Relax, Dad, it’s about time.”

“What do you mean?”

“We’re rich, filthy rich,” she replied. “We just won the lottery.”
