Story of Sam
Sam is a young man aged twenty three. He works as a technician in a company which specialises in W.A.P technology. He spends his time on a Help-line to customers who are having problems with their phones ,or with the Internet. He helps them to solve their problems and patiently explains to them what they should do to make everything work. He loves his job, but finds the hours a problem. You see, he lives in England and his customers are in America. Sam starts work at 2p.m. or even 5 p.m. every day because of the time difference between the two countries. This means that when his friends are thinking of the end of the working day, Sam is cycling to start his work. When they are planning to go out for the evening, he still has a long time to work before he can finish. When his friends are are having their mid- morning break, Sam is sleeping. Although the hours are strange, Sam enjoys his job and the company of the other guys in his office. They share a lot of jokes together and take it in turns to go out and buy burgers and cokes when they are hungry. He cycles to work, because this is very healthy and also very cheap. There are no buses late at night when he wants to go home and he hasn't got a car. One big problem for Sam is that his girl friend is living in London at the moment so they only meet at the weekend. When he gets home late at night, he relaxes before he goes to bed, How does he relax? Well he spends an hour or so on his computer!
