I rarely watch TV. Last night I noticed that my wife was watching an old Egyptian movie “My wife is the general director”. The movie was entertaining and enjoyable.
The movie is about a wife and husband –both engineers- who worked for two governmental authorities. The wife was promoted to the director general. On the day she was supposed to start her new duty she met with the undersecretary who told her that she was the DG of X authority. To her surprise, it was the same authority where her husband worked.
She headed to her office. To the surprise of the employees, she was a woman because both men and women may share the same name.
She called the department heads for an introductory meeting. Her husband walked in with a grim face. When the meeting was over the husband asked for a short meeting with her. She accepted. He told the DG that she should never say that he is her husband. That was conditional for him not to resign.
The husband heard called kinds of curses from employees against his wife.
Beneficiary employees showed their real faces. One day the wife complained in a meeting that the work was not completed on time. One employee jumped to say that it was because the engineer (her husband) was unhappy at home and this negatively affected his work. Another employee volunteered to say that the engineer’s aging wife was a heavy drinker and that he advised the engineer to divorce her.
The real skin of employees appeared. Until one day, an employee spotted the wife and husband leaving home together. Rumors started. The husband then revealed that the DG was his wife.
When a wife makes a higher salary than her husband, bosses him at work, and notices one woman trying to attract the attention of her husband problems start to pile up. Jealousy initiates, anger builds up and life could become unbearable.
Would you accept your wife to be your boss?
Can you separate married life from Work?
Can differences at home stay at home or would they reappear at Work?
Why would you not mind working for your wife?
How would you react to curses to your wife from employees?
What feelings will you have if your wife becomes your boss? Jealousy, envy, or pride that she accomplished what you did not?
