Read the story below, then answer the questions that follow.My Very First JobWe had moved over to Spain from Australia when I was 19 years of age. I was a young man in a new country and it was around this time that I got my first job as a waiter in a restaurant called Sabroso. My cousin’s boyfriend co-owned the restaurant with his cousin. The owners were Jaime and Gilberto, and Gilberto was my cousin’s boyfriend. My cousin’s name was Isabella and she told me that I would love working at the restaurant and told me that her boyfriend would be a great boss.Everything started out just fine and I remember taking orders at lunchtime, which was not a very busy period at all. I was learning the ropes and Gilberto turned out to be a very ‘hands-off’ boss. He never told me what to do and was always very friendly. He used to come into the restaurant at lunchtime but it was not to work. Rather, he used to spend time drinking and eating with his friends. After a few weeks, I was asked by the other owner, Jaime to work in the evening as that is where they needed help on the floor and boy was he right. The evening shift turned out to be chaotic. It was so busy and I would be on my feet until 2 am. Work usually started at 8 pm and we were given dinner. Most of the time, we were not given a meat dish, just some pasta, as this was cheaper.I’d arrive home very late at night and on one occasion, I had to stay back really late as it was a busy night and there was a mistake at the till. So my mother and father turned up at about 3 am outside the restaurant to pick me up. My father was furious and said that I was being exploited. At first, my father liked the idea of me making my own money but he soon grew tired of the late nights and was putting pressure on me to quit my job. I, however, grew to love the social aspect of the job and working nights. It was fun! A couple of months passed and I was still working at Sabroso much to my father’s dissatisfaction. Jaime turned out to be a bit of a slave driver, expecting a lot out of the waiters and not paying us very much. In addition, despite being the owner, he would take a share of the tips, telling us that he too was working hard on the floor. I really didn’t mind being a waiter, but in the end, my cousin broke up with Gilberto, and it seemed like the right time to look for another job. I landed a job teaching English. It was a day job, so I was living a healthier existence and my father was happy that he didn’t have to worry about me coming in at all hours of the night (and early morning).The end.The writer’s cousin wasGilbertoIsabellaJaimeBoth Jaime and Isabella 34.
