The Man Picked up by the Gods – Volume 2 Chapter 56: After Closing Time (1/2)

After closing the store, I gave the cleaner slimes some water for cleaning the store, then Carla-san came to give me the store’s daily report. But for some reason, the air about her seemed different than usual…

“Boss, it’s about the store’s revenue…” [Carla]

“What’s wrong? Did we make a loss?” [Ryouma]

“No, that’s not it.” [Carla]

“Then in that case, we must’ve made a profit.” [Ryouma]

“Yes, but it’s not like the days before, Ryouma-sama. Because our income for just today is 26,0326 suits.” [Carla]

26,036 suits!?

“W-Wait a moment. Didn’t we only make 16,000 yesterday? Why is there suddenly a 10,000 suits difference?” [Ryouma]

“Today, right after you left the store, we got a huge contract. Apparently a manager of smiths and carpenters had heard the rumors going around and wanted to enlist services. And then after that, workers from the metal industry came one after another. They bought large bags and enlisted our services immediately.

But that’s not all. Our individual and group customers have also increased. There are a lot among the individual customers who get more than one bag. The sales of the bags show no signs of ending either.” [Carla]

“Can you give me the details of our revenue? I’m not suspecting your o anything, but I’d like to confirm it with my own eyes…” [Ryouma]

“Of course. Please wait at the office for a bit. I’ll bring the records.” [Carla]

I did as she told and waited in the office.

…Come to think of it, this is my first time using this room. I’m always carrying laundry or dealing with the customers or at the break room…

While I was thinking that, Carla-san came with a sheet of paper.

“These are our sales for the day.” [Carla]

“Thank you.” [Ryouma]

I took the sheet of paper and looked at the sales for the day.


Individual Course: 10 suits x 998 = 9980 suits
14-Persons Course: 18 suits x 152 = 2736 suits
35-Persons Course: 40 suits x 55 = 2200 suits
Individual Bag: 20 suits x 159 = 3180 suits
14-Persons Bag: 25 suits x 68 = 1700 suits
35-Persons Bag: 30 suits x 50 = 1500 suits
Equipment Wash Service: 15 suits x 316 = 4740 suits
Total: 26,036 suits

Yep, the record checks out.

“You were right. Wow. I can’t believe things actually got this far… Just wow.” [Ryouma]

Even if you take away the sales from the bags, you still get something close to 20,000 suits. But this too is because of everyone and the cleaner slimes’ efforts.

“By the way, what about the others?” [Ryouma]

“They’re in the break room right now. They’re double checking the sales for the day.” [Carla]

“Double checking?” [Ryouma]

“There are medium and small copper coins, so they’re separating them and confirming that the coins add up to what’s been calculated.” [Carla]

“Oh, so that’s what you meant. I’ll help out then.” [Ryouma]

“But this is a job for the employees…” [Carla]

“Technically, I’m also the manager of this store, so I’m also one of your coworkers. Let me help out.” [Ryouma]

Actually, you twins are just too good at office work. Although there is still some work to be done, it’s too little, and with how good the two of you are at supporting me, everything just gets wrapped up so quickly… For someone like me who always has an energy drink ready, this just isn’t enough.

“I understand. However, Ryouma-sama, you are not technically our this store’s manager, but are in fact the store’s manager.” [Carla]

After Carla-san said that, she accompanied me to the employee break room. It was just the room next door, though.

“Good job today.” [Ryouma]
“Thank you for today, Boss.” [Carm]
“Thank you for today.” [Everyone else]

When I entered the room, the 6 employees greeted me. A large number of copper coins could be seen gathered on a giant table. They seemed to be counting them one by one by hand.

“Thank you for working so hard everyday. It is a huge help to me to be able to leave the store to you.” [Ryouma]

“No need to thank us, Boss~ Since this store really pampers us~” [Maria]

“Exactly, Ryouma-sama. Hired workers are expected to do at least this much.” [Carm]

Everyone nodded in agreement to Carm-san’s words. Even Carla-san who was behind me nodded.

“I see… I’m glad to hear that. Anyway, let’s continue. We just need to count these copper coins, right?” [Ryouma]

“Yes. But we can really just take care of these ourselves.” [Carm]

“The more wands the better. Besides, that’s a crazy amount, no?” [Ryouma]

Our income for today is 26,036 suits. All of that was paid for in either small or medium copper coin. In other words, 1 or 10 suits coins. Naturally, that meant an absurd amount of copper coins.

Once everything has been counted, we will be putting them away in the safe in the basement, and then we regularly entrust the money to my account in the merchants guild. But that’s also a hassle…

“Please take a seat then.” [Fina]

“The seat beside mine is free.” [Fei]

“Excuse me.” [Ryouma]

  1. “The more wands the better. Besides, that’s a crazy amount, no?” [Ryouma]

    I think you meant the more hands the better instead of wands. Either way thanks for the chapter!

  2. “Yes, but it’s not like the days before, Ryouma-sama. Because our income for just today is 26,0326 suits.” [Carla]
    I just took the paragraph to find it easier.
    But small typo on the numbers.
    Thatnks for the chapter

  3. “I understand. However, Ryouma-sama, you are not technically our this store’s manager, but are in fact the store’s manager.” [Carla]
    I actually don’t know what is trying to be said here, since Carla is saying “you’re the manager” and “you aren’t the manager”. Besides that, excellent job and thank you for translating!

    1. It was because he had previously said “Technically, I’m also the manager of this store” like saying “Basically I’m the manager” and Carla was just correcting him that it isn’t that he is “technically” the manager but is in actuality the real manager.

  4. And he almost gave away the knowledge of the filth sucking slimes for free.

    But again, laundromat is just the first step. He’ll realize the true worth oh slimes when he hits puberty.

  5. Given that this is going to be a daily event, you would expect him to make a simple tool for tallying coins. A slotted box with a sliding release that only holds some multiple of ten, for example.

  6. Error??
    today is 26,0326 suits. -> today is 26,036 suits. (the rest of chapter shown as 26,036 suits)

    I’m not suspecting your o anything -> I’m not suspecting you of anything

    Thanks for the treat.

  7. Thanks for the chapter, this chapter make me think about our national business who don’t think this way
