Now the VOA Special English Program Words and their Stories.

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 liked to play card game for money, he liked to gamble.

My friend Bob had problem because he liked to gamble at all courses, he could play at any time and any price. To take part in a card game such as Poke, 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 dollars 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 is the feeling it must be to win all the money in the gambling table. Other times my friends would simply break even, he neither win nor lost money. But sometimes, Bob would loose his shirt, he would loose all his money he had. He took a biting at the gambling table. When this happened, my friend would have to go in the hole, he would go into debt and owned people money. Recently, Bob turn to crime after loose all his money. In his job he kept the books for small business. He supervised records of money earned and spent by the company. Although my friend was usually honest, he decided to cook the book he illegally change the financial records of the company. This permitted him to make fast bark, my friend makes quick easy money dishonestly.

I never thought Bob would have stick fingers, he didn’t say like a save who was still money. But some people will do anything for lovable money. Bob used 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 has returned to good for financial healthy. His company, however, end up in the red, it lost more money than it earned. Then company with on longer profitable. It didn’t take a long before my friends dishonest with its discovered. The company investigated and charged him with stealing. Bob tried to pass the bark, 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.
