Many people believe that money makes the world go around; others believe that money buys happiness. I do not agree with either idea. But I do admit that money can make people do strange things. Let me tell you about a person I once knew who like to play card games for money. He liked to gamble.

My friend Bob had a problem because he liked to gamble at all costs. He would play at anytime and at any price to take part in a card game, such as poker. My friend would have to empty up. He would have to pay a small amount of money at the beginning of the game. Bob always played with cold, hard cash, only coins and dollar bills. Sometimes, my friend would clean up. He would win a lot of money on one card game. He liked to tell me that one day he would break the bank. What a feeling it must be to win all of the money at a gambling table.

Other times, my friend would simply break even. He neither won nor lost money. But sometimes, Bob would lose his shirt. He would lose all the money he had. He took a beating at the gambling table. When this happened, my friend would have to go in a hole. He would go into debt and owe people money.

Recently, Bob turned to crime after losing all his money. In his job, he kept the books for a small business. He supervised the records of money earned and spent by the company. Although my friend was usually honest, he decided to cook the books. He illegally changed the financial records of the company. This permitted him to make a fast buck. My friend made some quick, easy money dishonestly.

I never thought Bob would have sticky fingers. He did not seem like a thief who would steal money. But some people will do anything for love of money.

Bob used the money he stole from his company to gamble again. This time, he cashed in. He made a lot of money. Quickly, he was back on his feet. He had returned to good financial health. His company, however, ended up in the red. It lost more money than it earned. The company was no longer profitable.

It did not take long before my friend's dishonesty was discovered. The company investigated and charged him with stealing. Bob tried to pass the buck. He tried to blame someone else for the deficit. His lie did not work, however, he ended up in jail. Today, I would bet my bottom dollar that my friend will never gamble again. I would bet all I have that he learned his lesson about gambling.

Many people believe that money make the people go around,
others believe that money buys happiness. I do not agree
with either idea. But I do admit that money can make people
do strange things. Let me tell you about a person I once
knew who liked played card games for money. He liked to gamble.
My friend Bob had a problem because he liked to gamble at
all costs. He would play at any time and any place to take
part in a card game such as PuKe. My friend would have to
** up he would pay a small amount of money at the beginning of
the game . Bob always played with cold hard cash only coins
and dollar bills. Sometimes my friend would clean up he would
win a lot of money on one card game. He liked to tell that
one day he would break the bank. What a feeling it must be
win all money at a gambling table. Other times my friend
would simple break even. He neither won nor lost money.But
sometimes he would lose his shirt, he would lose all the
monery he had. He took a beating at the gambling table. When
this happened, my friend would have to go in the hole, he
would have to go in the debt, owning people money. Recently
Bob turned to crime after losing all his money. In his job,
he kept his book for small business. He supervised the money
earned and spent by the company. Although my friend was
ususally honest. He decided to cook the books. He illegally
changed the financial records of the company . This permitted
him to make a fast buck. My friend make some quick easy
money dishonestly. I never thought Bod would have stinky
fingers, he did not seem like a thief who would steal money
But some people would do anything for love of money. Bob used
the money he stole from the company to gamble again. This time
he cashed in, he made a lot of money. Quickly, he was back
on his feet, he had returned to his good financial health.
His company,however,ended up in red. It lost more money than
it earned. The company was not profitable anymore. It did
not long that my friend's dishonesty was dicovered. The company
investegate it and charge him with stealing. Bob tried to
