Tekst 1.
After a week at Mrs Chapman’s store, I felt I belonged there. I did everything Mrs Chapman expected me to do and even more. She was grateful for anything I did, especially things she hadn’t asked me to do, for example cleaning the windows. Once my mum asked me jokingly, “Couldn’t you do the same in your bedroom, Jane?” I didn’t tell her that Mrs Chapman gave me a few pounds more whenever I did something on my own initiative. I was afraid my mum was going to think she should also give me money for doing the housework. This certainly wasn’t what I wanted. The truth was that I needed the money to buy her a surprise gift.

The trick is that there are two identical twin men married to identical twin women. They work different hours to keep the restaurant open as long as possible, but most customers think that there is one super-couple that never sleeps. The truth only came out when one of the twins gave an interview to Today Morning Post.

Peter’s blog entry: My interview story
I once had a job interview. The interviewer gave me some graphs to interpret. While doing the task, I found a mistake in one of them. I tried to show the interviewer how to correct the graph. He got irritated and said I wasn’t a suitable candidate for the job. Two weeks later, however, he called me, apologising and explaining that the company workers hadn’t noticed the mistake. He offered me the job and an attractive salary. So if you feel sure you’re right, learn from my lesson and don’t be afraid to say what you think at a job interview. It might pay off!
