Chapter 565 Playing Tai Chi with Me?
Taikang Pharmaceutical Company was a large pharmaceutical enterprise mainly specialized in Western Medicine in the country. Also, it was the one that had received the most attention among the six pharmaceutical companies involved in Fang Qiu’s explosive revelations apart from Siqi Pharmaceutical Company.
It was also for this reason that the moment Taikang Pharmaceutical Industry’s post on Weibo was released, it immediately attracted a lot of netizens’ attention.
After reading that post on Weibo, the netizens were all stunned.
“What is happening now?”
“I never knew that a large company like Taikang Pharmaceutical Industry could have such a good attitude to admit its mistake. The company did swallow its pride and openly acknowledge its blunder.”
“They’ve done a nice job of admitting their mistake.”
“Although it’s still undecided whether Fang Qiu is willing to forgive them, based on their sincere apology alone, I decide to quit opposing them.”
When the people of other companies saw this post, they were all dumbfounded at once.
No one had expected Taikang Pharmaceutical Company to be so shameless to do such a thing. It was just too despicable!
At this time, the leaders and the public relations departments of other companies were still having meetings in the conference room. When these people saw this post, they all secretly scolded Taikang Pharmaceutical Company and sighed regretfully. How come their own company’s public relations department failed to come up with such a good solution?
However, since Taikang Pharmaceutical Industry had made its move first, the others would wait and see how Fang Qiu would respond. If Fang Qiu agreed to be the so-called Quality Control Manager of Taikang Pharmaceutical Industry, the other companies could immediately post on Weibo and give Fang Qiu the same offer.
Previously, when Fang Qiu first disclosed the news, Siqi Pharmaceutical Company tried condemning Fang Qiu but was later rebuked in return. This matter had already been spread among the major companies. They were warned that they should not provoke Fang Qiu when they had no idea what Fang Qiu was going to do. Even if they did it with good intentions, they might be given a downright talking-to anyway!
Therefore, even though the big companies knew it was a perfect plan to invite Fang Qiu to be their Quality Control Manager, they still did not dare to act rashly. Instead, they were all waiting for Fang Qiu’s response.
In the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine.
Fang Qiu didn’t leave the library until it was dinner time. After dinner, he went for a walk on the Yaowang Mountain.
As soon as he climbed to the top of the mountain—
“Beep, beep, beep…”
His phone rang all of a sudden.
Fang Qiu took it out and looked at the screen.
It was from Jiang Miaoyu.
Fang Qiu picked up the phone.
“Where are you?” asked Jiang Miaoyu.
“I just had dinner, and I’m taking a walk on the Yaowang Mountain,” Fang Qiu answered with a smile.
“You do have nothing to do. You’re the first person to have dinner in the entire university.” Jiang Miaoyu teased.
“Well, it’s because I don’t have to go to classes given my good grades.” Fang Qiu gloated, laughing.
“Humph.” Jiang Miaoyu snorted haughtily, then said, “By the way, I heard that you’ve become the Quality Control Manager of Taikang Pharmaceutical Company, haven’t you?”
Fang Qiu was stupefied.
“Nice, very nice. You already have a generous salary while in school, so you won’t have too much pressure providing for me in the future. But as the paycheck this job gives you seems to be very impressive, it might tempt you to have a mistress. Thus, after the company starts paying you, you must quickly spend the money by purchasing an apartment…”
The more Jiang Miaoyu talked, the more farfetched it seemed to Fang Qiu.
“Hold on, hold on!”
Fang Qiu hurriedly called for a stop. He could tell that Jiang Miaoyu was teasing him, making him a laughing stock.
Sure enough, as soon as Fang Qiu called for a pause, Jiang Miaoyu couldn’t help but burst out laughing.
“Do you have any idea what the matter with the Quality Control Manager is?” Fang Qiu asked, raising his eyebrows.
“I knew it. I knew you didn’t know.”
Jiang Miaoyu giggled, then clarified the issue. “Taikang Pharmaceutical Industry has posted a post on Weibo. They first thanked you and then apologized to the public. In order to show their sincerity, they also invited you to be their Quality Control Manager.”
“How could that be?”
Fang Qiu was dazed. A moment later, he suddenly laughed and said, “Okay, I’ll go and have a look.”
“Well, I’m going to have dinner, too,” Jiang Miaoyu answered and then hung up the phone.
After talking to Jiang Miaoyu, Fang Qiu immediately logged into his Weibo account with his mobile phone to check the post.
As expected, he saw the post released by Taikang Pharmaceutical Company.
By this time, a ton of people had left comments below and reposted this post. Fang Qiu’s Weibo account had received a lot of attention. Many people were waiting anxiously, wondering how Fang Qiu would reply.
After reading the post, Fang Qiu smiled.
“Interesting. How come they came up with such an idea. They are just playing Tai Chi with me, aren’t they?”
With a chuckle, Fang Qiu whispered, “However, do you think that I will be at my wit’s end after this?”
“Since we’re going to do that, let’s see whose technique is more excellent!”
After that, Fang Qiu went down the mountain.
Then, he directly turned around and headed out of the campus.
He came to the street near the university and visited all the drug stores, such as the “First-class Hall” and the “XX Grand Pharmacy”.
This time, Fang Qiu looked specifically for the drugs produced by Taikang Pharmaceutical Company.
He bought a box of almost every kind of medicine produced by Taikang Pharmaceutical Company that had not been tested before, as long as they were available in the drug stores. After that, he brought the medicine back to the dormitory.
As Zhu Benzheng, Sun Hao, and Zhou Xiaotian hadn’t returned yet, Fang Qiu seized the time to test the medicine at once.
It turned out that there was something wrong with all of these drugs.
Without further ado, Fang Qiu took pictures of these drugs after ascertaining that they all had quality problems.
At 10 o’clock p.m., Fang Qiu released another post.
Aside from uploading the pictures of those drugs in question, Fang Qiu also specifically pointed out the problem of each of the drugs. Some of them had excessive pesticide residues; some contained excessive heavy metal, and so on.
Anyway, Fang Qiu practically listed all the sub-quality products of Taikang Pharmaceutical Industry.
Although this time he didn’t have the test sheets of the Capital University of Science and Technology as evidence, Fang Qiu was not worried at all because he had bought a copy of each of the drugs, and he didn’t intend to throw them away. If the other party refuted that Fang Qiu had no solid proof, he would find a chemical laboratory to test the drugs right away, or even pay another visit to the Capital University of Science and Technology.
After all, this matter had not only aroused people’s attention to Chinese Medicine but also helped the Capital University of Science and Technology to rise to fame. Inadvertently, it gave people the impression that the Capital University of Science and Technology was the number one institution in the field of the laboratory test.
Fang Qiu believed that the Capital University of Science and Technology would not turn him down once he made the request.
The post appeared on Weibo.
Fang Qiu smiled.
Looking at the post that he had just sent, he inwardly denounced, “You tried to turn my force against me, but you didn’t know that your move happened to serve for my use. This is the real art of accomplishing a great task with little effort by clever maneuvers.
“In fact, the person who came up with this method is quite impressive. But it’s a pity that his foundation is not stable. Without a solid foundation, no matter how powerful the means are, it’s useless.
“Tai Chi is all about stance training!
“When the stance training is not well learned, the rest of the effort will be in vain.
“It’s the same as practicing martial arts. If you want to break through forcibly with an unstable foundation, you can only suffer Qi deviation and draw the fire upon yourself!”
On the Internet, countless netizens had waited for hours before Fang Qiu’s reply finally arrived.
At the sight of Fang Qiu’s reply, the netizens immediately burst into laughter.
“Holy cow, such a slap in the face!”
“Person A: ‘I’ll give you a piece of candy, so please don’t hit me, okay?’ Person B: ‘I’ll give you a slap in the face!’ Person A: ‘Well then, I’ll give you a truck of candy, please don’t hit me, okay?’ Person B: ‘I’ll give you a slap in the face!'”
“My face hurts. Even I feel so embarrassed for Taikang Pharmaceutical Company!”
“This slap in the face is really one of a kind.”
“Taikang Pharmaceutical Industry thought that giving Fang Qiu a smiling face would be rewarded with the same smiling face. Yet, they didn’t expect that Fang Qiu was not a normal person. He likes to slap others in the face, especially when they are smiling!”
“Haha, Master Fang Qiu is demonstrating his power again!”
“Congratulations, master, your face-slapping skill has improved again, and you’ve already had mastery of it!”
Netizens made fun of the matter like mad.
Some people even had a stomachache because they laughed too hard.
For a time, all kinds of jokes were left in the comment area of Taikang Pharmaceutical Company’s account.
It had to be said that netizens were really talented. In just a few minutes, they made up hundreds and thousands of different versions of the story.
However, just as everyone was having a great time embellishing the story, a person suddenly replied with a motion graph.
In the picture, a black boy smiled and tried to please the other child, but he was slapped by the child. The expression on the black boy’s face immediately changed. He felt very wronged. However, he was immediately slapped again.
The netizen who posted the motion graph even fixed the picture with the story.
Everyone took a look at that motion graph.
Then, they laughed even harder.
Soon, some busied themselves writing the story, while the others engaged in making motion graphs. In the end, there came a set of “Fang Qiu’s face-slapping emoji packages”.
Netizens were having so much fun.
At first, as far as the netizens knew, in the face of this job offer sent by Taikang Pharmaceutical Company, Fang Qiu could only accept or reject this offer.
Some netizens had even analyzed the two options for Fang Qiu in advance, and they found that neither of the options was good for Fang Qiu.
But to their surprise, now there was a third way to answer.
This was a reply that no one had expected.
Fang Qiu seemed to be saying that he did not really wish to work for a company that was so careless about the quality of its products!
At the same time, other pharmaceutical companies were also amused.
“Serves them right!”
“Haha, they’ve already been scolded, but they dared to poke that hornet’s nest. They’re really looking for death!”
“The bullet hits the bird that pokes its head first. Fortunately, we laid low and waited.”
In private, those companies were all excited that Taikang Pharmaceutical Company got a slap in the face again. In the meantime, they also felt thankful for themselves because they refrained from contacting Fang Qiu and offering him a payment. Otherwise, who knew what would happen to them.
In Taikang Pharmaceutical Company.
Believing that the dust had settled, all the employees went home to have a rest. Ma Guoyong, the chairman of the board, also went off for a sauna and a massage.
Yet, the emergence of Fang Qiu’s post immediately made all the members of the company thunderstruck.
Seeing this post, those in the public relations department of Taikang Pharmaceutical Company were all dumbfounded!
“Beep, beep, beep…”
At once, the phone of the staff member who proposed the plan began ringing.
The call was made by the Public Relations Manager.
“Is this the good idea you’ve come up with?”
A demanding voice came from the other end of the line.
“I don’t know Fang Qiu is so difficult to deal with. And I’ve already presented my plan. He is too cunning. Besides, this mess is caused by other drugs with quality problems. It has nothing to do with my plan. At worst, I can resign!”
The staff member was irked, too.
The manager was stunned, and then his tone immediately softened. He quickly said, “I didn’t mean to blame you. It’s just that this Fang Qiu is too wily. Your plan is very good, but it didn’t work as it was supposed to. I just said something unpleasant to the ear because I was really anxious. Don’t do anything rash. Could you please rack your brain to see if there is any other way out?”
“Give me 10 minutes.”
The staff member considered it for a moment and then quickly hung up the phone.
