John Smith is a very busy man. He is 60 years old and he has a lot of jobs. He is a policeman, a fireman, a school bus driver, a postman, a taxi driver, a boatman, an ambulance man, an accountant, a petrol attendant, a barman and an undertaker. Also, he and his wife, Susan, have a shop and a small hotel.
John lives and works on the island of Gingham in the west of Scotland. Only one hundred and twenty people live there but in summer this number will be doubled because of tourists who come by boat every day.
Every day John gets up at 6.00 and makes breakfast for the hotel guests. At 8.00, he drives the island’s children to school. At 9.00, he collects the post from the boat and delivers it to all the houses on the island. He also delivers the beer to the island’s only pub. Then he helps Susan in the shop.
He says, “Susan likes being busy, too. We never have holidays and we do not like watching television. In the evenings, Susan makes supper and I do the accounts. At 10.00, we have a glass of wine and then we go to bed. Perhaps our life isn’t very exciting, but we like it”.
