Now the VOA Special English Program Words and their Stories, most people enjoy working for several reasons. Their job might be fun, or they like their employer and the other people there work.

Most people I know however work for the money. I do not know anyone who is loaded or extremely rich. Most of my friends work to earn enough money to live. They have to make earns meat; they have to earn enough money to pay for the things they need. Some even live from hand to mouth they only have enough money for the most important things. They struggle to earn enough money to bring home the wage. It can be difficult to earn enough money for a family to survive.

Sometimes, poor people even get caught short they do not have enough money to pay for what they need. Or they have to spend or lay out more money than they want for something. When this happens, poor people have to tighten their belts and live on less money than usual.

I hate when I have to live on less money, it takes me longer to get back on my fate or return to good financial healthy. However, other people are on the gravy train, they get paid more money than their job is worth. These people make a bangle, they really rate in the cash. In fact, they make so much money that they can live high of the hug. They own the best everything and live in great ease. Sometimes, they pay an arm and a leg for something, because money is no object to welfare people. They will pay high prices for what ever they want. Sometimes, they even pay through the loads; they pay too much for things.

I am not rich; I did not make a killing in the stock market when my stocks increase in value. Yet, I am not poor either. When I go out with friends I do not show out or pay a lot of money. Often my friends and I will chip in or pay jointly for a fun night out. When we go to restaurants the meal is Dutch treat, each person pays his owns share. Once the owner of the restaurant gives us a dinner on the house, we did not have to pay for meals. However I admit that we have to agree someone’s palm; we have to pay money to the employee who led us a table, the money is for a special request. Yes, it was a buy off. The employee put us at the tough of the least for a table instead of making us away like everyone else. We had a great time that night and meal did not set me back at all. I did not have to pay anything. Because of better experience I always remembered that nice things still happen in the world that is drove by money. But that is just my true senses of worth, it is just my opinion.
