Mark came into the room and he walked straight to my desk.
‘Can you help me with something, please?’ he asked.
‘I will try. What do you need?’ I answered.
‘I need to send an email, but I am afraid that I made many mistakes. You know that my English is not very good.’ said Mark.
Yes, I knew that. His English was very bad.
‘Yes, of course, I will help you with your email.’ I answered. ‘When do you need it?’
‘I need it now. I’m very sorry, but I do not have much time. I have to send it immediately.’
‘Immediately? But I am very busy right now. Can you come in 30 minutes?’
‘Sorry, I can’t wait. I need to send this email as soon as possible. I have a meeting in 15 minutes. Can you please look at it now?’
‘OK,’ I said. ‘I hope that it isn’t very long.’
‘No, it isn’t. It is a short email,’ said Mark. ‘I sent it to you before I came here. I am sure that you already have it in your inbox.’
‘I looked at my emails and yes, his email was already there. I looked at it. I did not have a lot of work with it. Mark did not make many mistakes in his email.
‘I am sending the email back to you, ok?’ I said to him.
‘Thank you very much for your help, Pete! I will remember it!’ said Mark. After that, he went to his office and he immediately sent the email to his manager. He was very happy.
I continued with my work and I finished it in 2 hours. I went to the little kitchen and I made a cup of coffee. I made it very strong, without sugar and without milk. I took it to my desk and I drank it there.
After my little coffee break, I worked on some other things. When I finished, I turned off my computer, and I went home.
On my way out, I met some of my colleagues. I said hello to them and they said hello to me.
At work, we all are very good colleagues, but we are also very good friends. When I need something, they always help me. When they need something, I always help them.
I like working for this company.
