Chapter 97: Just Tell Me If You Have the Balls or Not. (Part one)
On the next day, Xu Cheng, who had nothing to do, went to the HQ in downtown to report to his new post early. He was brought there by Ran Jing, and Xu Cheng went to the director’s office to report in first.
During the past few days, the director was just having a really good time, feeling awesome about everything since they were able to take down one big pain in the a-s that was rooted in the city for centuries. Seeing Xu Cheng, he laughed and immediately greeted him, “Why not rest for a few more days? Did your injuries recover yet?”
“Yeah, I’m fine now, and I’m just here early to try to adapt to the environment first.”
The director nodded, then he got up, went to the cabinet behind him, and retrieved some documents for Xu Cheng. “Here, you can go now to the HR department to register everything, and then someone will take you to your office. I’m looking forward to working with you, good luck on your job!”
Xu Cheng saluted. “Yes Sir.”
He took the documents went to to the HR department to get everything set up, and then an officer brought him to Team 2’s office of the Criminal Investigation Department.
When the officer led Xu Cheng and walked past a giant office space, a longing smile appeared on Xu Cheng’s face. But, it turned out that they were just passing by, and at last, they arrived at an office that was only 20 square meters in size. Standing at the door, Xu Cheng felt like going back to the hospital already.
“That was the office for Team 5, this is for Team 2,” the officer said and then left.
Standing at the door, Xu Cheng looked at the foul-smelling office with 8 officers inside. At that moment, their eyes met, and it was mighty awkward.
Seeing him with the documents in his arm standing at the door, an old fritter narrowed his eyes and asked Xu Cheng, “What are you here for?”
Xu Cheng took out his badge from the document folder and put it on his chest, not speaking a word. Then, the old fritters gathered around, and after they took a closer look at the badge and the title, one of them lifted his eyebrows. “You are the new guy in charge of Team 2?”
Xu Cheng nodded.
Someone passed a cigarette to him, and Xu Cheng took it. He walked into the office and seeing the people that were smoking and lazily laying back on their chairs with their feet up on the desk, he frowned. “According to my style, people coming to work should look like people that are here to work. I don’t mind you guys smoke on the job, but the space is tight here, it’s not good for everyone to breathe in your second-hand smoke. We are servants of the public, not sick and sorrowful smokers. I hope you guys can be more energetic on the job. In addition, please go to the hall or outside to smoke in the future; don’t stink up the place in here.”
A guy laying against the chair lazily said, “There’s nothing to do all day, where would our spirit come from? Other people have a future to work hard towards, we are just here wasting our time, turning from optimistic and hardworking officers to old fritters. You tell us, how do we become more energetic?”
Xu Cheng replied, “Then you guys are going to stay like this forever.”
His words were a bit harsh, and many people looked over with disdain, trying to figure out why this guy was acting like a big shot.
A guy with his feet on the desk puffed out some smoke and asked him, “Is your dad the director?”
Xu Cheng shook his head.
That guy sneered and asked another question, “Then are you a god?”
Xu Cheng shook his head again.
“Then where do you get the sense of superiority to discipline us?” Everyone looked at him with disdain.
“Because I will be your boss from now on, so I need to give you guys some positive energy.’
Right as he said that, the eight officers all snorted. “Not just anyone can make us call them our boss.”
