Now the VOA specail 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 argee 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 cards games for money.He like to gamble. My friend bob had a problem because he like to gamble at all costs, he would play at any time and at any price to take part in a card game, 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 clean it up he would win a lot of money on one card game. he like to tell me that one day he would break the bank. what feeling it must be to win all of money at gambling table.other times my friend would simply breakeven 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 gambling table.when this happened my friend would have to go in the hope . he would go into debt and own people money. Recently bob turn to crime after losing all his money . in his job he kept books for a small business . he supevised the records of money earned and spent by the company. Although my friend was usually honest , he decided to cook the books . He illegally change the finacial records of the company. this permitted him to make fast buck. My friend makes quick easy money dishonestly. I never thought bob would have sticky fingers. he did not seem like a thief who would steal money, but somepeople 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 end it out in a 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 it and charged him for stealing.Bob tried to pass the buck. he tried to blame someone else for the deficient. his lie did not work however he ended out in jail. Today I would bet my bottom dollar that my friend will never gamble again. I would bet all I have that he listened his lesson about gambling.
