Rude Boss Insults a Beggar Outside the Office, Gets Punished by His Employees the Next Day – Story of the Day

Eric was stuck in a rut. His once vibrant passion for exploring ancient civilizations had been replaced by the dreary grind of running his father’s company. His arrogance and disdain for others had caused the business to falter, but he was too absorbed in his own misery to notice.

One day, as he walked toward his grand office building, he accidentally knocked over a beggar’s tin of coins. “Don’t worry about it, sir,” the beggar said softly. “I’ll clean it up.” Eric briefly felt a pang of guilt, but it vanished when he caught a whiff of the beggar’s odor. “You’re disgusting!” he yelled. “Look at my shoes!

Everything will change.”

Confused and unsettled, Eric went home. The next day, he was inexplicably kind and agreeable, even approving Tennessee’s vacation request and promising office upgrades. He couldn’t understand why he was acting this way, but it was too late for him to change course.
