Xiaolin’s Parttime Experience

Xiaolins Parttime Experience

This time, Xiaolin wants to share his first parttime experience. He will tell us his working place, working time, and also his feeling towards his experience.


哇!又是一个月了我在酒馆里打工。其实我不怎么喜欢在酒馆打工,因为很累,可是酒馆给我的钱真不错,所以我只好辛苦一点。


今天,我用我第一次打工的钱来请客。我的三个好朋友都来。不过,我只请他们喝一罐可乐。很少是很少,可是我也不要把我赚的钱用光了。


我们就谈了我们的打工经验。我觉得我的打工经验是最辛苦的,所以我先开始说。我的打工时间是每个星期三和星期六,从8点到12点。听起来是蛮轻松的,每个星期一共只要打8个小时的工。可是在这个时段,客人真的很多。再加上,我没有什么经验,所以总是手忙脚乱。


我的老板也很小气。有一次我打破了杯子,他不但扣我钱,也骂我一顿。哎呀...真累。难怪,我的室友说我每次打工回到宿舍时,一躺下就睡着了。


我以为我的高中生活已经很辛苦了,现在我才知道,这才是辛苦。

English Translation:

Wow! It's a month already I am working in a pub. In fact, I don't really like to work in a pub, because it is very tiring. However the money given by the pub is really good, therefore it is better for me to work hard a little bit.

Today, I used my first parttime salary to treat my friends. All three of my good friends are coming. However, I only treat them with a can of Coke. It is very few, indeed, but I don't want to use all of my money.

We talked about our working experience. I feel that my working experience is the hardest, so I am starting first. My working hours are every Wednesday and Saturday, from 8 to 12 o'clock. It sounds quite relaxed, and it only takes 8 hours of work in total every week. However, during this time, the guests are really many. Plus, I don't have any experience, so I always get flustered.

My boss is also very stingy. I once broke the cup, he not only deducted my money but also yelled at me. Ah... so tiring. No wonder, my roommate said that every time I went back from work to the dormitory, I fell asleep as soon as I lay down.

I thought that my high school life has been very hard already, and now I know, this IS hard work.
