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 they 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 ends meet, 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 ___ . 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 feet or return to good financial health. However,other people are on the gravy train, they get paid more money than their job is worth. These people make a ___, they really rek in the cash. in fact, they earn so much money that they can live high up the hog, they own the best of everything and live in great ease. Sometimes, they pay an arm and a leg for sth, because money is no object for 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 do not make a killing in stock market when my stocks increased in value, I am not poor, either, when I go out with my friends, I do not want to show out or pay a lot of money, often, my friends and I will cheep in or pay jointly for a fine out, when we go to restaurants, the meal is Dutch treat, each person pays his or her own share. Once the owner of a restaurant gave us a dinner on the house, we did not have to pay for our meals, however, I admit that we have to Gree someone’s palm, we have to pay the employee who led us to our table. The money is for a special request. Yes, it was a buy-off, the employee put us on the top of the list for a table instead of making us wait like anyone else. We had a great time that night and the meal did not set me back at all, I did not have to pay anything. Because of that experience, I will always remember that nice things still happen in a world that is driven by money, but that is just my true sense worth, it’s just my opinion.
