Now the VOA special Egnlish program words and their stories.Most people enjoy working for several reasons.thier job might me fun or they like thier employer and the other people at work

Most people i know however work for the money.i do not know anyone who is loaded (特别有钱的)or extremely rich.Most of my friends work to earn enough money to live.they have to make *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 bacon(腌肉熏肉)
it can be difficult to earn enough money for a family to survive.sometimes poor people even get cut-short.they do not have enough money to pay for what they need.or they have to spent or lay out more money than they want for something.

when this happende poor people have to tighten their belt(节衣缩食) and live on less money than usual.I hate when i have to live on with less money.it takes me longer to get back on my feet or return to good finacial health.

However other people are on the gravy train(美差,轻易发大财之工作).they get paid more money than their jobs is worth.this people make aoundal??
they really weak in the cash.In fact they make so much money than they can live high of the hog

they owne the best of everything and live in great ease.sometimes they pay an arm and a leg for someting.Because money is no object to wealthy people.they will pay high prices for whatever they want.sometimes they even pay through the nose.they pay too much for things.

I am not rich.I did not make a killing in the stock market when my stocks increasing invol?? you.Yet i am not poor either.when i go out with friends.i do not want to show out were paid a lot of money.Often my friends and i will chip in(下注) or pay joy for **
when we go to resterants ,the meal is Dutch treat (各自付账)each person paid his or her own share.once the owner of a resterant gave us a diner on the house .we did not have to pay for our bills.however i admit that we had to grease someone's palm (买通某人向某人行贿)we had to pay money to the employee who led us to our table.the money with for us a special request.Yes it was a buy off(收买)
the empoyee put us at the top of the list for a table instead of making us wait like everyone else.

We had a great time that night and the meal did not set me back使某人花费 at all.I did not have to pay anything.Because of that experince,i will always remember that nice things still happen in the world that
is striven??by money.But that is just my true sence of words.it is just my opinion.
