Chapter 764 – Housekeeping staffs
The title of Microsoft top executive was very useful. That evening, Tony brought the contracts to Feng Yu’s hotel.
When the door opened, Tony got a shock. 6 tall bodyguards walked out. What was Feng Yu trying to do to him?
Of course, Feng Yu did not do anything to Tony. After Wilson checked the contracts, Feng Yu signed it, and they gave a 1 million cheque to Tony. He told Tony that the extra 10,000 USD was his tips and wanted him to settle all the paperwork as soon as possible.
Tony nodded. Feng Yu was too generous. 10,000 USD tips!
The bodyguards looked at Tony with envy. A 10,000 USD tips for such a simple job?
Feng Yu was secretly observing those bodyguards. He was satisfied to see them envying Tony and not jealous of him.
Feng Yu did not move into that house immediately. Some of the items in the house must be replaced. Most of the furniture does not need to be changed, but all the home appliances got to be changed.
If possible, Feng Yu would use Wind and Rain brand appliances. He will use Philips brand if Wind and Rain do not have the appliances he needs. He will not consider other brands temporary. Also, Feng Yu wants to give away those books he was not interested in. He does not want to keep those books which he does not read to decorate his study room. Feng Yu wants to buy the whole set of novels by Gu Long and Jin Yong.
Of course, Feng Yu also want to get business magazines like <Forbes>, <Bloomberg>, <Fortune> and <The Economist>.
But Feng Yu was not interested in those books on economics. In Feng Yu’s previous life, many people had read Dale Carnegie’s books, but who can replicate his success? Those books were just talking about things where everyone knows.
Feng Yu felt those books were all bullshit! His compilation of <Suboptimal Health> was much better. At least <Suboptimal Health> had lots of information which most people does not know.
As for that “Cursed” house, Feng Yu asked Wilson to prepare the paperwork for rebuilding it. He wants to build a new house and then fence up the lawn of both properties.
Feng Yu could keep dogs in the lawn and could increase his privacy. Maybe he could even build a helicopter pad in the backyard.
The aviation back in China had still not been open up. No one can own private helicopters. But the regulations in the US is more relaxed. Feng Yu only need to pay more tax.
Furthermore, this is Seattle. The headquarters of Boeing. Boeing does not only manufacture planes and cargo helicopters. They also produce Civil helicopters. But Boeing helicopters were not as famous as their aircraft. Feng Yu could just purchase the helicopter from Boeing, and they will take care of all paperwork.
Feng Yu finally experienced the inconvenience in the US. Permissions must be obtained from the neighbors for building a house, there are restrictions on the height of the building, and his home cannot block the neighbor’s sunlight. The style of his house cannot be different from the neighbors, and the colors must be similar…….
There were too many restrictions. Damn!
Luckily, Feng Yu had Wilson and Ralph to assist him. If not, he would be frustrated. Goddamn! Even changing the floor tiles had to notify the neighbors. If not, the police will come!
Feng Yu’s new house was huge, and he needed some housekeepers, cooks, and gardeners.
Although Feng Yu could hire part-timers to do these jobs, he felt it would be better to get some permanent staffs. He does not like to see unfamiliar faces around him. Who knows if those people would harbor ill intentions?
A house had been renovated, and the other was still under construction. Today, there will be a few housekeepers coming in for interview, and Feng Yu decided to interview them personally.
“Boss, this couple had worked as the housekeepers for a Boeing’s Chinese Engineer. But the engineer had been transferred to another state, and they are currently out of a job. They had opened a Chinese restaurant before and were said to be good cooks. I am not familiar with Chinese cuisine, so I am not able to judge.” Ralph was holding on to a file and explaining to Feng Yu.
“They are Americans?”
“No. They are both Chinese and are currently holding work permits. If they still can’t get a job this month, they will be sent back. Their son is studying at University of Washington, and they came over to help earn money for his son’s tuition fees. Their son will be graduating next year. “
Feng Yu nodded. Actually, this couple’s son can support himself while studying here. In Feng Yu’s previous life, he also worked part-time to support himself while in University. Maybe this student’s parents felt they could make more money in the US. After all, many Chinese felt money could be quickly earned in the US.
Of course. If one could find a job and is willing to work hard in the US, he or she could make more money than in China.
“Good morning, Mr. Feng.” A middle-aged couple entered. They were dressed plainly and looks nervous. They even bowed to Feng Yu. It was the man who greeted Feng Yu in English.
“I am from China. You can speak Chinese with me.”
The couple seems relaxed a little. The man bowed slightly forward and said: “Mr. Feng, I had worked as a gardener back in China. I am confident in my skills. I also know about cleaning and maintaining swimming pools and still know a bit about electricity. I can repair many things. I don’t mind getting a lower salary if you are willing to take us in. My wife is a good cook too. She had opened a restaurant back in China and have no problem as a housekeeper. She also does not mind getting a lower salary.”
“Salary is not a problem. I am curious. Do you two know English? How did you all get the work permits in the first place?”
This couple’s son knew that Boeing’s Chinese Engineer. That Chinese engineer pitied the couple and got a recruitment agency to help them get the work permit in the US.
But that engineer was transferred to another state after helping them get the work permits. He could not bring the couple with him, and so, this couple was out of job.
The husband had studied up to High school and knows some English words. It was hard for him to communicate with others. However, he had no problems buying groceries. The wife did not know any English, but she looks tidy.
“Go and clear the lawn and that flowerbed. I will ask someone to get the groceries, and you prepare 4 dishes. If you all can satisfy me, then we will talk about your salaries. If not, I’m sorry. Don’t come and tell me that we are all fellow Chinese and ask me to hire you.” Feng Yu will not pity this couple as he does not know them personally. He does not care whether if they were sent back or not.
“Thank you, Mr. Feng. We will definitely do a good job.” The couple bowed and left the room. The wife went to the kitchen, and the husband went to the garage to get the gardening tools. Both of them were eager to prove themselves.
“Are there any more people? Call them in. We shall continue with the interviews.”
