The day Roger faced redundancy he panicked. How could he tell his wife? He was sixty. Unemployable. How would they survive?
The following day he picked up the lunch his wife always made for him and 'went to work'.
Paralysed by shame, Roger continued the pattern.
Three months later he found his lunch containers empty. Roger sank into a chair, head in hands.
'Why didn't you tell me?' said his wife.
'Silly man, we'll be fine. You're going to work in the business I started last year.'
Roger looked at his wife in astonishment. She winked at him.
