Although Labour Day is annually around the same time each year, there is still never enough notice for Bruce. Although, the reader will feel compassion for him when reading seeing how it is an exaggeration of how horrible the day truly is to him. Bruce uses many balanced sentences during this piece as well by putting many of his memories into a sentence to contrast them with other bad memories of school in order to get his point across. “Is that tree
At work we had a contract that came through at the last minute. Because of the lack of communication and the timing of the contract there was miscommunication. We had no clue on what the clientele wanted. At one point the client was telling us about a meeting room and an extra requests for meeting space outside. Dumbfounded, we all look like this was our first rodeo.
In a true passive-aggressive move, I missed deadlines. I was late; I even had a few arguments with some of the staff, which is incredible when one considers that I was an unpaid intern with little right to opinion, let alone an opinion worth fighting for. Congressman Davis soon grew weary of my immaturity and lack of effort, but instead of giving me the boot, he talked with me. He was stern, understanding, and listened when I expressed my lack of enthusiasm at work. He quickly got to the core of my frustration and presented me with more meaningful tasks as well as encourage me to do my best in all that I did no matter the size of the task.
20th October 1910 Dear Diary, My first day with the Carters was nothing like I expected. When I arrived at the docks I was certain that the twins would be there to greet me, but there was no sign of them. I suddenly felt very forlorn. “What if they had forgotten me!” Miss Minton reassured me, but I think she was scared too! I waited for over an hour when a man with a crumpled cream suit and a Panama hat came up to me and Miss Minton.
I’ve been looking for a job lately to maintain my finance matters. When I finally found the job I wanted, I applied immediately and after waiting for a reply from the applied job I had received a letter saying that I am not fit for the job even though my CV was about perfect. Afterwards, I decided to go to the workplace of the job that rejected me to know the reason why I wasn’t taken for the job. When I arrived at the company I was feeling uneasy as all the workers there were white which wasn’t a problem for a black man like me but they were giving looks which told me that I wasn’t welcome here. I went to one of the receptionists to ask them to have a talk with their manager which I was not allowed to do by the receptionist.
“Dictionary and atlas on the rug, the typewriter waiting for the key of the head” (line 13-14) gave me a sense of limitless possibilities waiting for me in each day. Of course, when the day is almost over, there is disappointment (especially if it is the only day off that week) that the hours are creeping away. Being a person who adores new beginnings, I cherish this little piece. And there is nothing that makes you cherish a new beginning more than describing the thing that precedes it. “Why do we bother…” (line 1), “The swale of the afternoon, the sudden dip into evening” (line 1-2) were the lines that opened the poem.

Assumptions • Mike Frazer wants the system implemented in 10 weeks because he views it as the answer to the company’s lackluster follow up sales.
People do not usually ask working adults questions like “how much fun did you have yesterday?” Instead, they ask questions like “Did you finish the proposal yet?” and “When will you be finished organizing the meeting?” We often forget how important it is to do things like taking care of our health and spending time with our families in the midst of all this pressure to perform well in the workplace. We also often forget to simply enjoy life once in a while and do something fun and relaxing. As a result, American workers often feel worn down and completely exhausted from working so hard. American workers need to be allotted more vacation time because it would increase productivity and allow overall for happier, healthier, and more enthusiastic workers. American workers need more vacation time spread throughout the year in order to care for both their mental and physical health.
