It was five o’clock in the afternoon when Mrs. Lan came home from work. She walked into the living room and looked at her two children. They are 10 and 14 years old. They were watching TV.

The living room was in a mess. There were dirty socks on the floor, and cookies on the sofa. Games and toys were everywhere. Mrs. Lan was angry. ‘This place is a mess,” she told her children. “I can’t work all day and then do the housework all evening. I’m not going to do the housework!”

Mrs. Lan didn’t do the housework. She didn’t clean or wash the dishes. She didn’t wash clothes, either. Every evening she sat on the sofa and watched TV.

Part 2. Read the passage and decide whether the statements are true (T) or false (F).

I retired about a year ago. The company had a big party for me and gave me a gold watch for more than thirty years of service. At the party everyone said to me, “Retirement is a time to do all the things you didn’t have time to do. It’s a new thing.” I can’t say that I dislike retirement, but after working for thirty-five years, it’s hard to adjust to all this free time.

Just after I retired, my wife, Peg, and I went to visit our children – John Smith in London and Ann in Liverpool. We really had a good time. We enjoyed being together. In fact, John Smith invited us to come to live with him. He knows that living on retirement salary is not easy. But we decided not to live with him. We have our lives, and he and his wife have theirs. We are going to stay here in town. We may move to an apartment because the house is too big for only the two of us and it’s hard to keep clean. Peg is having some trouble with her back. She’s seeing the doctor tomorrow.

Money isn’t a serious problem for us because we have some savings, but we have to make careful decisions about what we can afford. We’re not used to living on a fixed income, but We make ends meet. I still belong to the club and I play cards there once a week, and we spend time with other retired couples in the area. My only regret is that I didn’t spend enough time thinking about retirement before it happened.

1.This man retired six months ago.

3.He worked for forty years in the company.

4.He and his wife are moving in with John Smith.

5.He dislikes retirement.
