I. READING COMPREHENSION
TEXT 1 : LONG HOURS!

So you think my job is simple?


You take the pizza from the shop, drive around town, go back to the shop and repeat Unfortunately, it isn’t
that easy. I don’t earn much per hour so I have to work long hours-sometimes I start at 3 p.m. and finish at 2
a.m. I drive about 20 miles at night and I have to use my own bike because the company doesn’t give me one.
Another problem is the tips. Customers don’t have to give me extra money, but with no tips I don’t earn
much. When I finish driving, I have to serve customers in the shop with the other workers. And my boss?
Does he have to meet the customers? No, he doesn’t. He just has to sit in his office and answer the phone
before he goes home at 6 p.m. After reading this, I hope you will be nice to the people who deliver pizza to
your house!
