Now the VOA Special English program verds and their stories.
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
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 would never
gamble agail. I would bet all I have that he learned his
lesson about gambling.
Doggie, Chewy, here comes Woody!
