Now, the VOA Special English Program, words and their stories,
Many people believe that the money makes the world go around, others believe that money buys happiness. I do not agree with ether 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 to play cardgames for money. He liked to gambo. My friend Bob had a problem because he liked to gambo at all costs. He would play at any time and any price. To take part in a cardgame such as poker, my friend would have to end it 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 clear 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. He, what a feeling it must be: to win all of the money of gamboling table.
Other times my friend would simply break even. He nether one nor lost money. But sometimes Bob would lost his shirt, he would lost all the money he had. He took a biting at the gamboling table.
When this happened, my friend would have to go in the hole. He would go into dead and own people money. Recently, Bob turned to crow after losing all his money. In his job he cap the books for a small business. He supervises the records of money earned and spent by the company. Although my friend was usually honest, he decided to coke the books, he ? eagly change the financial records of the company. This him to make fast bug. My friend makes a quick easy money dishonestly.
I never thought Bob what have stinky fingers. He did not seem like a thieve who will steal money, but some people will do anything for love of money.
Bob used the money he stool from his company to gambol again. This time he cashed in. He made a lot of money. Quickly he was back on his feet, he has returned to good financial health. His company, however, ended it up in the red. It lost more money than it earned. The company with 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 bug. 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 button dollar, then my friend will never gambol again. I would bet all I have that he learned his lesson about gamboling.
