Igo left the company without any regret. He thought that he wouldn't get any problems by bearing the jobless status. It was probably because he had many friends and some rich relatives. Having left his luxurious flat, he continued the second week of being jobless staying at his uncle's house without any money in his pocket. He didn't try to find any other jobs.

There weren’t any of his uncle's family members at home during the day. So, he was being left alone in the house and didn’t plan to go anywhere. While they were leaving, he was so happy because he could eat anything he liked as his uncle said so. Besides eating, his only activities were watching TV and sleeping all day.

The second day, he was phoned by his friend offering a job in the supermarket. But, he declined the offer as if he hadn't needed any help. In the night, he was going outside with another friend who was very generous to him and could hardly refuse any of his demands. It was too late to go back to uncle’s house, so he stayed with his friend that night.

After getting back home in the morning, he saw all the family members were busy cleaning the house thoroughly. He greeted all and came into his room (guest room) without proposing any apology or offering any help. Seeing his attitude, his uncle kept quiet and still pitied him but couldn’t say anything to advise him. However, he tried to talk slowly to him then.

Those bad habits had not stopped until after he got a good job and left his uncle’s house without any gratitude at all. In a big company, he enjoyed a new life with his new friends. Despite his capabilities at that moment, he still liked freeloading everywhere he met the generous people. He often got so much free stuff but he never did something in return, even to be grateful.

Several months later, he lost his job again. That time, there weren’t any people who helped him. His uncle was dead and his auntie refused to accommodate him due to his bad attitude before. He could be a real beggar unless he found another job quickly. At last, he hardly managed to find any other jobs but a cleaning service.

Never had he experienced any difficulties before his parents were dead without leaving any inheritance. His experiences taught him how to thank and appreciate what he had. A few months later, he managed to find another better job. He promised himself that he wouldn’t be a freeloader anymore.

This short story is just a fiction which may sound illogical. :D Remembering my promise to join the challenge by Expector Smith (The Uses of Any) :), I've learnt further about it and decided to write about Freeloader, the word that I've shared in the game Guess My Word. I also used a few grammar lessons from teacher Tanya. This is just a life figure of a high level freeloader. :D But, it's not always without a job. Can you describe it better or simpler or funnier? Challenge in challenge, why not? ^_^

Thank you so much for your time reading this blog. Have a fantastic day, all! ^_^

My dear bro,

Your freeloader...mm...let me think about it deeply. LOL...

I see I see ... A freeloader can be most active blogger/member in EC, but don't reverse it, OKAY. :))

Where are you these months my brother, please don't take a long holiday from EC anymore. :) Thank you always for your comment. :)

Teacher Tanya,

This is what I'm waiting for... :) Of course I'm happy to have your correction.

Btw, I have questions for sure. :D

1) 'he was still relaxed and stayed at his uncle's house on the second week of being jobless.' ---> How is it now?

2, 3, 4, 5) OK Ma'am, I got that. Thank you for the lesson. :)

6) 'At last, he managed to find some job, but only in the cleaning service.' ---> After a bit long thinking, I can conclude that I cannot say 'at last' then 'a negative statement', am I right? It seems odd when I read my sentence again. Maybe you have other explanation. I'd like to hear that.

Thank you very much for your nice words and lesson, Teacher Tanya. Have a happy weekend! :)
