How my Dad got his job in trade.

Extracts from this document...


Ryan Harman 11th October 2001 THE JOB IN TRADE Hi! I'm Paul. This is the story about how my dad got his new job. It was 3.30am. I heard a noise and saw that the light was on, so I got out of bed and crept downstairs silently. The office door was ajar, and I could see my Dad still sat at the computer. He was so engrossed in his work, he did not see or hear me approach. I went to peer over his shoulder and the floorboard creaked as I got nearer to him. He was startled and was surprised to see me but he retaliated quickly and turned off the computer monitor. He had a sealed letter in his hand, which he asked if I would post for him in the morning on my way to school. ...read more.


As soon as he saw it, he gashed it open with his hands which looked as shaky as a leaf blowing in the wind. Later, he gathered the family around and explained that the World Trade Centre had offered my Dad a two-year trial job, which would start in two years time. In the afternoon he then explained to me "yes, that's who the letter was from that arrived this morning when I acted so secretive". Of course, I already knew, but he didn't know that. The time had come. Me, my Dad, my Mum, my brother and my dog all moved to New York. It was going to be wicked. Another two years had whizzed by when Andy Andrews, the Manager of the Trade Centre, had called Dad to his office alone. It was only a week before he was finishing his two-year trial period when he thought his contract was coming to an end. ...read more.


The shop assistant said " that is the most expensive suit in the shop, it will cost you $2,000,000". That didn't stop my oakum Dad from handing his credit card over. After this spending spree, my Dad went home, put on his new suit, and drove his brand spanking new BMW to work. He even had a car park space with his name painted on it, which was right outside the entrance to the World Trade Centre. He walked on in and jumped in the lift to floor 79. Five minutes later the lift stopped at Floor 79. My Dad hopped out, found his desk and computer and got to work straight away. On his desk it said Jon Doherty - Deputy Manager. He couldn't believe his eyes that he had been hired as the Deputy Manager of the whole building out of all the 4,789 people that work in there. There we have it, that is the story of how my Dad got a job in the World Trade Centre in New York. (788 Words) ...read more.
