I went to my original country where I was born. I was born and raised there for the first 19 years. I love that country and I love to go back there.
I had to go back in a hurry. My father had two operations in one shot. He is 82 years old and very ill health. He was a very big Police Officer and maintained his slim figure all his life but the drawback is now he does not eat anything as to maintain his slim figure all his life he was a very choosy and picky eater. He would eat just a bit..like a 8 yrs old kid. Anyway after the operations the doctors could not revive him for almost 5 hours. In one time the doctors declared him dead but he came back 5 hours after the surgeries. I am the only son and I knew I had to be there but could not go to see him as I had no money to buy the ticket with and for my pocket money.
I am a 47 years old matured man and I can not accept money from my mother..so I tried and tried to get some money by driving extra few days. I did not take even a single day off for more than two months and I could not collect even $500 dollars after paying all the bills. Business was so down..I could not make $100.00 for myself after the lease and gas almost none of those days. I think I made $100.00 only 4 days out of the more than 2 months. My father’s health was going down, day by day he was deteriorating and he was getting sicker. I called him everyday he could only answer very sickly but when he totally stopped talking to me because I did not go to see him..I said to myself, “To hell with everything..let me go..I only have one father..”
So I asked my wife to help me out. She bought the air ticket and also gave me $200.00 dollars as pocket money. And I flew with that little money.
Imagine going to more than 10000 miles way with that little money..? Friends you will not know the feeling unless you have gone through the same.
You may wonder why am I explaining all the personal details in this post..? My friends..all I am saying is that a Taxi Driver does not become millionaire by driving Yellow Taxi. The business is so bad..it is even hard to survive. Hope my readers will see that I am as genuine as it can be and will appreciate my honesty.
That’s it for now. I will write more about the trip later. Thanks for reading the blog.
Remember LOVE THE TRUTH.
