ΑΝ.: And until we found our jobs, and until I found a pharmacy, until, I worked, I worked at a pharmacy as well and I worked at Pascal too. Then I got pregnant I didn’t work again, but my husband was assembling bicycles in the beginning, did he know anything about bicycles? But slowly he learned (laughs) until he became an accountant, what else? He knew accounting, alright he afterwards worked at a shipping company slowly he became partners with some other Greeks in logistics and it was in ’70 when he opened his own office in Jean-Talon and alright I helped as well and he got a secretary it was a bit difficult, wasn’t it.
RE.: And for what reason didn’t your husband want you to work?
ΑΝ.: To stay at home and raise the children.
RE.: You didn’t want to leave them?
ΑΝ.: This was more the Greek mindset, I don’t know, I don’t know, now I also saw some things which I didn’t like.
RE.: For example?
ΑΝ.: Let’s say I saw one woman who had two children and was looking after them and I even saw her slap one, I was terrified I didn’t want someone else to hit my child under any circumstances. My husband saw it as well and he tells me you’ll stay at home to raise the children. Now, I could get a job when they became eleven, twelve years old, eh I didn’t go this was a mistake, that’s what I think it was, a mistake of mine that I didn’t go, because I could go to Eton, to Simson back then they were asking for girls and such, what I worked, I worked only for a year and a half.
