now the voa special english programme 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 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 at any price.
to take part in a card game such as poker,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 dollar 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 a feeling it must be to win all the money at the gambling table.other times,my friend would simply break even.he either won nor lost money.but sometimes bob would lose his shirt he would lose all the money he had.he took a beating at the gambling table.when this happened,my friend would have to go in a hole,he would go into debt and owe people money.
recently,bob turned to crime after losing all his money.in his job,he kept the books for a small business,he supervised the records of money earned and spent by the company.although my friend was usually honest,he decided to cook the books,he illegaly changed the financial records of the company. this permittd him to make a fast buck my friend makes a quick easy money dishonestly.
i never thought bob wuld have sticky fingers.he did not seem like a thief who would steal money.but some people would do anything for the 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 good financial health.his company however ended up in the 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 and charged 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 again .i would bet all I have that he learned his lesson about gambling.words and their stories this voa special english was written by J.M I am F.L..
