Now the VOA Special English Words and their Stories

Many people believe that money makes the world go around, anothers believe that money buys happiness. I do not agree with either idea. But I do admit 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 like to gamble.

My friend Bob had a problem because he liked to gamble at all costs. He would play at any time and at any price. To take part in a card games such as proker 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 palyed with cold, hard cash, only coins and dollar bills. Sometimes my friend would clean up, he will win a lot of money on one card game. He liked to tell me that one day he will break the bank. What a feeling it must be to win all of the money at a gambling table. Anther times my friend would simply break even, he neither won nor lost money.

But sometimes Bob would lose his shirt, he would lose all of his money he had. He took a beaten at the gambling table.When this happened, my friend would have to go in the hole. He would go into debt and own people money.

Recently, Bob turned to crime after losing all his money. In his job, he kept the books for the small business, he supervised the record of money earn and spend 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 premitted him to make a fast bark. My friend makes a 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 any thing 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. Qucikly 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 is no longer profitable.

It did not take long brfore my freind's dishonest was discoveied. The company investigated it and charged him with stealing. Bob tried to pass the bark, he tried to bring 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 gambiling.
