I Know Everything - Chapter 467
Chapter 467: New Year is approaching.
The students were quite pitiful.
Especially for third year high schoolers, things like vacation seemed like out of reach fantasies.
Speaking about the Spring Festival, the school would stop at the 20 of the lunar month, which was at the end of January.
But then school would start again five days after the New Year.
It was only half a month of leisure.
Vacation didn’t mean rest either as there was much homework to review and do.
The leisure time they had was basically the three days after the New Year.
Actually, many parents talked to Chen Huan if he could squeeze in another week of tutoring during the vacations.
It would be five classes from morning to the evening, the money would be easy to negotiate.
Chen Huan directly refused.
If he really squeezed the study like that, they would probably rebel against it.
Proper rest was needed for a better starting anew.
It wouldn’t be a good thing if they were squeezed until the string was broken without the proper rest.
Actually, Chen Huan had nothing to do during the holidays.
Only Chen Huan and Xia He were in the house.
Shui Qingshan and Shui Qianyu went on a tour with Comeback.
Shui Qianyu only had to do 4 performances at the beginning but due to the great reception, the planner just gave more money and asked her to try her best.
Considering that Lei Daxuan recovered from his injuries not long ago and that the high intensity concert tour was very demanding physically and mentally, Shui Qingshan asked his daughter to help him as much as possible.
So they didn’t come back yet.
It would probably be the 25th of the twelfth lunar month when they would be done.
Poor Shui Qianyu.
Although she was still the haughty, loved to scrutinize and give lessons to Chen Huan, Chen Huan could feel that she was very tired over the phone.
This was also the consequence of being a talented daughter.
If they gave birth to a daughter who was useless except for being cute and looking good, she would be at home eating snacks and laughing while watching TV.
After some thought, Chen Huan felt that he needed a daughter like that even if he had many children.
His daughter only needed to be cute.
There were fewer people traveling during the Spring Festival but the small noodle shop was still packed with people.
So Xia He was busy all day long without much free time.
Just doing the spices alone took a lot of her time.
The Han Dong’er parents wanted Chen Huan to spend the new years with them but they had too many relatives and Han Dong’er also ran to the headquarter of the Yanhuang Music in Huajin to practice and began the production of the new albums under Xiao Yan.
So Chen Huan obviously wouldn’t go.
But he still had things to do.
Zhang Yaya came to invite him to visit her family business, Yongxing Supermarket.
At the time, the 32 supermarkets outside of the city were about to close down.
Last week, Zhan Duocai, who had tasted the sweet, became even more crazy.
He directly signed a large order of 1 billion worth of goods with more than 70 different goods.
The entire vacant lot outside of the supermarkets was filled with various Yongxing Supermarkets products and New Year’s goods.
Everyone knew that craziness was caused because they were about to close down so people felt like they didn’t even need money to buy the goods.
So those places were crowded all day long, which made the police put a guard line to prevent a stampede.
Of course, Zhang Duocai still had some ambition for the future.
He knew that sooner or later, he would return to those places so the quality of goods were guaranteed. It wasn’t those bad and inferior goods that were sold for quick money.
Although the people bought more than normally, the price wasn’t higher than those they would get for online shopping and they were all products of the usual manufacturers.
Yongxing Supermarkets was known for that, otherwise they would have already been pushed away by Carrefour or Wal-Mart years ago and wouldn’t be able to develop into such a big enterprise.
“The 32 stores are about to be done.” Zhang Yaya said to Chen Huan, “We made more money than expected for this. Around 100 million and that money would be given to all the employees of those 32 stores as the Zhang Family’s compensation for them.”
There were around 10k employees for the 32 stores if everything was included.
So each person would on average receive 10k on top of their salary so they could have a happy new year.
“Speaking of which, do you think my plan is too cruel, making thousands of people lose their jobs?” Chen Huan asked her.
“No.” Zhang Yaya shook her head, “When the business isn’t good, it can only be closed down. Even if we didn’t close down now, we wouldn’t be able to maintain it in a year or two so they would be laid off and close down too…but how great is it now? We gave them time to prepare for it and gave them a big bonus of 10k Yuan, enough for them to buy time to find a new job!”
She smiled when she saw Chen Huan’s unwilling expression and said, “Think about it Chen Huan, a lot of them aren’t educated and only can do manual work. It’s hard to say for other jobs but for manual work, there’s always work as long as they are willing so there’s no need to worry!”
“I’m not worried.”
Chen Huan said without further explanation.
He thought back on the world of his past life, which was similar to this one.
When a new industrial model emerged and another model was pushed out, it would inevitably cause much pain.
This was the case during the industrial revolution and it was the same case for online commerce now.
Chen Huan didn’t have the blueprint of the decades to come, maybe the Good Lord knew a bit but it certainly wouldn’t tell Chen Huan about it.
Although he was lucky to have been transmigrated and have a system like the Good Lord, he was still insignificant in the entire human scheme.
In the grand scale change, adding Lu Xiaofeng, Chu Liuxiang and Chen Huan wouldn’t change anything.
At this moment, the two of them were sitting in a car going to a nearby Yongxing Supermarket that was undergoing its final preparation.
Chen Huan didn’t speak and Zhang Yaya looked at the side profile of Chen Huan with shining eyes.
This boy is so good looking!
She didn’t think anyone could be better looking than Su Mo but here was that someone just sitting next to her.
And he was more capable than Su Mo.
Su Mo could only sing.
Chen Huan could not only write songs but also a great mathematician and the basketball prince.
She was still worried that her family’s genes weren’t good enough, not smart enough.
If it was this man’s child who inherited the Zhang Family’s properties in the future, maybe…
Zhang Yaya started to blush.
