Unit 7. Work. Recording 15.

Speaker 1I have to think about school first of all, because my parents wouldn’t let me work if my grades suffered, so I only work during the holidays. Last year I had a five-year-old to look after three times a week. I had to feed her and then put her to bed. She was all right; a bit difficult sometimes, but I liked to play with her and tell her stories.Speaker 2It doesn’t pay too well, but I’m too young to do any other job. I do a round of about twenty houses in the neighbourhood on my bike. It’s only a minute to stop and leave the stuff at the front door, but still, I have to get up around six if I want to finish in time for the school bus. The only problem is when there’s very heavy rain or when it’s really cold.Speaker 3It’s a nice place and it’s always full, so you really have to be quick. I work for five hours on Saturday afternoons and earn £15 plus tips. It’s not bad, and I like the job because I meet a lot of people all the time. Of course, I have no time to stop at a table and chat, but that doesn’t seem to be a problem. Sometimes you can have a really nasty customer, but that’s very rare.Speaker 4I work on Saturdays from 8 in the morning till 5. I’m on my feet all day, and it can be tiring, but I really enjoy it here. Of course I’m not allowed to do the cutting, but I help with perming and blow-drying and I do the washing myself. I’d love to do the job when I leave school.
