I was poor and always said yes to my boss.But the 1 was reached one Tuesday my half holiday.On my way 2 on Tuesdays I used to carry a large basket of things to the house of my boss’s sister. 3 her house was on my way home,I 4 refused this.
On this particular Tuesday, 5 ,just as we were about to 6 ,a load of smoked hams was delivered at the 7 .“Wait a minute,Little Stark,” said the boss and he opened the load and 8 out a ham, 9 he started to bone(把……捆绑起来).
I 10 in growing impatience to get on my way,not for one minute but for quite a 11 time.It was nearly 2:30.Thank God! The boss finished.He then came to me with the boned ham,put it in the 12 beside me,and told me to take it to a customer who had placed an 13 for it days before.
This meant my going a 14 way out of my road home,so I looked up,saying.“ I have my 15 at two on Tuesday,you know.” “What do you 16 ? ” he shouted.I told him that I meant that I would deliver things as 17 ,but not at this moment.
The boss stared at me as if I were some unusual kind of insect and shouted even 18 .But I 19 firm.At last,seeing it was impossible,he gave up and 20 me go home for my holiday.
