Extracts from this document...


Work Experience Diary When I first heard about work experience, the first thing that came to my head was the chance of missing two weeks of school. However, I learnt that there was more to it then that. Whilst everybody in my year had got their placements a couple of weeks before the experience had started. I had not received mine yet. Not until the week before work experience I had got my placement. While opening the letter, I felt both anxious and excited but when I found out the place that I was working I was really disappointed.

I wore a suit to look professional which could say that I could do any task they wanted me to do. In addition, I saw a schoolmate of mine, who was also working there, which made me a bit relaxed.

However, all of a sudden I didn't know what I was doing and I went for it. I hit the gun out of his hands and it was spinning on the clean shiny floor it landed right near my manager's legs and he grabbed it with both with both hands and was pointing it to the killer. There was a moment of silence then out of nowhere the trigger of the gun is pulled and the killer is lying there with blood streaming from his arm. Then Tony dropped the gun and started shaking, we all gave him a hand whilst one of us called the police and told them what happened. Everyone had thanked me for hitting the gun to Tony but I would have done what any other person would do in my situation. Nevertheless, I wasn't happy about it because what I was wondering that if the guy moved one second earlier then I would be in trouble. Tony let me have the next day off and for a treat he would take me out for lunch. By Mohamoud Mereh ...read more.
