There was no person for these responsibilities except Kyoko.
She got two hours for lunch time because she was taking care of her mother.
Two hours lunch time was an hour more than other employee’s.
She went back home at lunch time to see her mother and prepare for cooking dinner.
Two hours later, she returned to the pharmacy and worked till 6:00P.M.
She used the bicycle for going and coming to the pharmacy.
It took her only a few minutes for one way.
Kyoko’s sister didn’t allow her to work in the store except the time when it was short of hands such as when other employees took holidays.
While Kyoko was working, those who entered the office were bank employees and MRs (medical representatives) of some medical commission business, a tax accountant and so on…
“You are my safe keeper, my confidential assistant,” said her sister usually told Kyoko.
However, whenever those related to the business came to the pharmacy and talked about important things, she handled all negotiation without Kyoko.
Kyoko only put seals on the contract documents.
Kyoko’s sister told their mother,
“I can run my pharmacy without Kyoko and other employees can replace Kyoko.”
