She got to the soft drink factory at nine instead of eight thirty. Her new boss, who was a tall, fat man, was very angry. He taught her what to do in a rush. All she had to do was watch a machine fill bottles with cola. Then she pushed a button and sent the bottles to be capped. At lunch, her boss sent her out to buy him a sandwich. She bought herself some fruit, but dropped it and stepped on it. By the end of the afternoon she felt hungry, bored, and tired. And she never wanted to see another bottle of cola in her life. The next morning she got to work on time and quit!
