Class 6

Dad had just lost his job. We were under severe debt. Desperate for money, he started working at a corporate gifts biz. 

That night, we had to fill ball pens with refills, to be paid per 100 pens.

The room was full of pens. And I asked “how will we ever fill them all?”

Dad said, “There are 3 of us. We can fill 3 pens each every minute. So 9 pens every min. Which means in a night we can do 3000 pens!”

And I was like “wow!”

We filled pens the whole night.

He gave me hope.
We made it! :)
