Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 180
Without waiting for the eldest sister-in-law to retort, Old Lady Han came out of the room and scolded, “What are you doing? Are you all imitating the shrew to the point where you want to piss off your parents to the point of insanity? Is this your so-called filial piety?”
The eldest sister-in-law was rather embarrassed after being scolded to the point where she couldn’t raise her head up. She wanted to be like Lin Lan and have the ability to just say whatever it was that crossed her mind there and then. However, she just couldn’t do it because she felt like it would bring shame to the family. She couldn’t do that to her family and be the cause of the shuns and rumours that were bound to spread if she did.
Upon seeing that she didn’t have the courage to defend herself, Old Lady Han gave her another lecture. In the end, she had also used this opportunity to let out the anger she got from not being able to scold Lin Lan back then.
A few days later, in the office of the County Revolutionary Committee, Han Qingsong, dressed in a military uniform, placed his transfer certificate and some documents on the table.
Director Qin quickly picked it up and looked at it, “Oh, Comrade Han Qingsong, welcome, welcome!”
He quickly shook hands with Han Qingsong.
He went to look at Han Qingsong’s document again, seeing that it was signed by a certain unit. This unit bore a name that was as revolutionary as thunder— not only did it come with a long history of named soldiers and achievements, it also had a brilliant record. As the Company Commander of the most elite company, Han Qingsong’s achievements should not be underestimated.
So it came as a surprise to know that he wanted to change his career. The reason, however, was a river too deep for a Director of the Revolutionary Committee to see through.
After all, at the beginning of the cultural movement, the army was in charge of everything. Now, it was only possible for him to settle down because he had the support of the army.
Han Qingsong was now appointed as the Deputy Chief of the County Public Security Bureau. Concurrently, he was also bearing the roles as the Director of the Shanshui Commune Public Security Bureau and the Minister of Armed Forces.
The law and order was rather good at the moment, so he just had to maintain the basic functionality of said law and order. The County Armed Forces department mainly managed military service and the Public Security Bureau only accepted some prisoners of labour reform and political prisoners. After all, there were no criminals at the moment, so the task was rather easy to handle.
The Commune’s responsibilities were even easier to handle. Many Communes were seized by the militia and the Public Security Bureau was just a decorational organisation. Some Communes do not have this department.
The Armed Forces Department was also more redundant as that was a place where retired cadres rested and spent their lives.
No matter how one looked at things, these positions didn’t seem like troublesome tasks. In actual fact, it was as if the Commune was giving him more opportunities to earn more while working less.
However, Director Qin did not despise Han Qingsong. Instead, he felt that there was something interesting going on.
It had been secretly rumoured that the current County Public Security Bureau Chief will be transferred. The following two Deputy Chiefs have always been at each other’s throats, but now that there was another Deputy Chief present, things were going to become rocky for sure.
There was no need for a single Director to ponder about something that was inevitable. The key was the military background of Han Qingsong, but he thought that things weren’t mainly that simple because there had to have been some other reason for Han Qingsong to score such optimal jobs.
