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 at work. Most people I know, however, work for the money.

I do not know any one who is loaded it or extremely rich. Most of my friends work to earn enough money to live, they have to make ends meet, they have to earn enough money to pay for the things they need. Some even live from hand and mouth; they only have enough money for the most important things. They struggle to earn enough money to bring home the bacon. It can be difficult to earn enough money for a family to survive. Sometimes, poor people even get cord short, they do not have enough money to pay what they need or they have to spend or layout when they want to have something. When this happens, poor people have to tight their bills 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 feet or return to good financial health. However, other people are on their greedy train, they get paid more money than their job is wealth. This people make up a *, they really rack in the Cush. In fact, they make so much money that they can live high of the hang. They owner the best of everything and live in great ease. Sometimes, they pay an arm and a leg for something, because money is no object to wealth people, they will pay high price for whatever they want. Sometimes, they even pay though the nose, they pay too much for things.

I am not rich, I did not make s killing in a stock market when my stock increase in value. Yet, I am not poor either. When I go out with friends, I do not want to 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 the restaurant, the meal is * treat, each person pays his or her own share.

Once, the owner of the restaurant gave us a diner on the house we do not have to pay for the meals. However, I admit that we have to agree someone’s *. We have to pay money to the employee who let us to the table. The money was a special request, yes, it was a buy off. The employee put us at the top of the list for the table instead of making us wait by everyone else. We had a great time that night and the meal didn’t set me bad at all, I did not to have paid anything. Because of that experience, I will always remember that nice things still happen in the world that is driven by money. But that is just my true * wealth, it is just my opinion.
