An Unread Mail

Sweat droplets trickled down on to his lappy. It was giving a beep sound indicating low battery. His hands were shaking and he, with utmost difficulty, clicked the mouse to open that unread mail

The screen showed

“Loading mail….”


The mail read, “May Payroll: Unable to credit salary”

And lappy shutsdown….

He’s dumbstruck!!!
