Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 255
They heard that Han Qingsong was the one who needed the extra hands, so many people came to inquire.
“Qingyun, Qingsong is going to build a brick house? What a bold move!” Some youngsters were envious and jealous of the Director’s capabilities.
If only they had known that this was the outcome, they would have joined the army as well back then. Perhaps they would have been able to build their own brick houses by now.
Han Qingyun said, “Why would he try to be low-key about it? Who else could build a brick house, be capable of repairing it every year and be worried when it rains heavily?”
“Isn’t he the Director? Then why not be a bit more low-key about it? If people know about this, they might think that this came from the benefits of having a high-ranked position,”Someone muttered.
“Oh quit it, third brother has already been the talk of the town ever since he became the Director. He became the Director because he was a soldier, so anyone who has a problem with it can go sign up and fight for your lives!”
The people who were jealous then jokingly said that their words were speeches of admiration towards Qingsong.
“Aiya, the back window of my main room has collapsed. It would be nice if there were bricks and tiles to repair it.”
Some of the villagers wanted to curry Han Qingsong’s favour, hinting publicly to borrow some bricks and tiles.
There were also those who wanted to have a good relationship with Han Qingsong to help get an approval note and buy the materials at their own expense.
Han Qingyun listened to them talk and instantly figured out what they were up to, “I’ll say things directly now— don’t try to bother brother Qingsong. He just started to work at the Commune and doesn’t have his position firmly in his grasp yet, so stop trying to waste his time and energy by ganging up on him. If you guys want to buy materials, you had better seek the Secretary Head and get in line to approve the slip.”
“What sort of things are you saying now? Of course we’re not that ignorant,” They were all rushing to help Han Qingsong because they wanted to try and form connections with him.
Han Qingyun didn’t choose them in the end and selected a few men who were known to be honest in their work without wasting their breath on unnecessary gossip. He didn’t choose any of those who were a blabbermouth and had low work efficiency.
When he took them to the Brigade to borrow the mule carts, others took the chance to spit some words of jealousy.
“Look at them trying to flaunt, as if getting some bricks is some sort of eventful scene.”
“They managed to flatter the Director after all, do you think they are the same rank as we are?”
In fact, they were the ones who wanted to suck up to him the most, but never had the chance to do so. After all, Han Qingsong was a man of few words, so there was no opportunity to get close to him.
After thinking about it, they thought that it might be a better idea to have their wives or mothers get closer to Lin Lan.
However, Lin Lan was a lot more powerful and scarier than Han Qingsong. Although Han Qingsong was known to be ruthless, he was still reasonable. His wife on the other hand, had no sense of reason at all. The moment she became unhappy, she would vent her anger on anyone around her.
Even so, there were still some who were not afraid of being scolded by the so-called shrew and were willing to find opportunities to approach Lin Lan. Some thought that if they managed to get close, management issues would be easier to settle in the future.
