This is the new thing in South Africa and people used to get high and mighty about it once upon a time and quote the bible forgetting that Jesus does not own a company! In South Africa we have reached a point where employment is so scarce very few will be hard pressed to blame a woman if she sleeps with someone for a job! Men maybe will complain, some holier than thou women might complain but usually those too are employed join the chorus of despises it because they never reached desperation point.m Even myself, my 22 year old friend was sleeping with this 50 year married men and here I was employed with no experience whatsoever! It’s like I sucked his dick by default, second hand smoking! We are just grateful to get the job! Must be tough being a man because whose dick are you going to suck for the post. It’s reality. The blacks in this country thought they were so clever come independence! We introduced BEE and made sure white people can never be employed. They left and went into the sector with the biggest potential and money, the private sector. We fucked up government now people are complaining that white people in private sector are too rich we must BEE that shit too regardless of whether their wealth and IT companies came after 1994! Lol to be black at times! We don’t think with direction that’s why half your daughters are now sleeping with people for jobs. I was not going to sexually assaulted though but today I will let it pass. I wanted, no correction, I needed this job badly. I will suck whatever in for a year whatever happens then have the necessary experience!
“I said why is he a son of a bitch?”
He asked angrily!
“Is my wife a bitch to you young lady?”
I was in trouble. I had spoken too soon and I did not know he was lurking behind. Have you ever been in a situation where you say something rude or embarrassing about someone without realising that they are standing right behind you. I was a legend at that. I do that all the time so I should know better. This was crazy! I think he sounded angry at the fact that I was cursing at his son more than what the son had done.
“No dad it’s me I teased her about her shoes and she reacted! She didn’t even know who my father was!”
He said casually. The boy was smooth. He was hot too! He reminded me of that Lunga guy who does Big Brother but with a bit more I am not even sure what his name was because he probably lied to look cool! Idiot he might be ha had just saved my ass because imagine what would happen if I made this complaint on the first day before I even fully started! This guy had to be forgiven. I was focused on my work here though so I will not allow this fool to distract me! I could not allow for him to become a thing. Looking at him though I could not help but wonder if Aurelia had not seen this guy yet. He was so fine! Wow! My boss had good genes, I looked at him, nah I change my mind! Must have been the mother!
“Lunga! Listen this is work! You play in your time! I am tired of your shenanigans!”
He shouted at him. Unprofessional I know but thank you. Why didn’t he tell him though that I was out of bounds. He had said zero about that even when he walked out! Wait did he just call him Lunga? Ah, I didn’t see that one coming but good guess on my part! Pity he had a useless son!
“You are feisty hey I like that! You and I are going to have a good time together! I can’t wait!”
He said with a cheesy smile! He knew he could get away with it. It was his father’s company but something told me that they were not close. It was weird. I was standing next to this kid knowing my best friend was fucking his father whilst his mother is probably at home. It’s reached that point were sex really is senseless and meaningless. Will I ever be that girl? Maybe that’s why he resented his father who knows but by the looks of it he was a ladies man!
“Where did you school?”
I asked him! I told him I went to Tuks of which he said I was probably on a bursary! He meant it as an insult and I took it as one too. I asked him where he went and with a smug face responded,
I think he thought I would be owed but I responded,
“School of rejects!”
“Go to any VC in the country and pick three students in the same year who had five or six distinctions at matric! I dare you!”
I said folding my arms. I had cut him deep but I was not backing down because the truth hurts. VC what? Puliz! It’s not even a real University that’s why they call it varsity only otherwise it’s illegal! The kids there are so proud! I saw one on Rich Kids Of Mzansi (wait don’t they all go there) and I just shook my head at his ignorance. Looking at this fool here, he was no different! Self entitled pampous pricks who think their daddies money belongs to them! Where is the pride in working for your own shit? Ask anyone who knows these kids and you will know exactly who they are. He was touched. I swear if he could hit me he would have but he took it on the chin and rolled with it,
“All those VC kids will never be unemployed and in fact will employ you Tuks kids with all your brains and distinctions. Ain’t no beating that shit!”
He said and made a chuckle. Yes he had won. He was right. Degree might give you a name but you can’t eat when you are hungry no can it shelter you in the rain. I was humbled. Working with this guy was definitely going to be annoying but there was no turning back now. We had so much paper work to do that. He was not getting preferential treatment though this cheeseboy as whatever I did he to had to do for himself. The father kept on checking on us which annoyed Lunga because it meant he could not chat up the receptionist. With the way she was giggling and look at him like a hungry child after attending a black bazalwane church, you know those ones that take hours, it was only a matter of time before he chowed her! Women! We are weak sies!
I called my sister to ask her how Amo was. You know I was so lucky to have her at home because it gave me peace of mind. There was no way I was going to let my mother chase her out. Most people at this stage would be looking for a nanny and women will tell you that these nannies can be so scary to leave your child with. I have heard enough horror stories to know I had to be scared.
We were done before midday. Thankfully! I was actually so exhausted. As we walked out he offered to give me a lift. I refused because I did not trust this pervert. What if he groped what was I going to do? I did not see where he went but the taxi was not too far away. I had not walked far when a car stopped behind. It was him!
“Are you sure you don’t need a lift?”
I told him no I was good and he sped off. His car looked exactly like, no wait…
White Mercedes Benz A Class!
I clap once!
Was Aurelia doing the son too!

Thank you for the beautiful stories. I am in grade 11 in Cape Town and I think I am pregnant. I have missed my period. Two months ago I was raped on my way back from school. There were sports on a Saturday and my mother had said I should not go because someone had to be in the house. She was out of town so I went anyway. She is very strict but sports at school are compulsory so I would have been in trouble anyway. My mother is the type who will turn any story on its head and if I tell her she will probably say I was lying and I slept with the boys willingly. I am so scared. I don’t know what to do.
Please help me
