When Martha looked in the classified ads she finally saw what she was looking for just below the section for classical music!
Clinging to the paper she rushed to the phone to make the phone call.
Hanging up she jumped for joy!
Now all she had to do was clean up the counters of the restaurant, clear out the customers and close up for a 15-minute break!
Her class work could wait until later that evening.
First she had to pick up what she had just foumd.
As she was clearing off the final table, however, her boss walked in!
"What are you doing, Martha? Trying to close down early? You know you can't do that!" he said.
Martha was close to tears.
She'd never be able to clear it up with her boss if she even stepped out for a couple minutes.
Now she would have to wait until her shift was over!
She kept working.
Later, when her shift was almost finished her boss asked her to clean down the main refrigerator before she left!
That would mean staying an hour later!
ARR-GHHH! Martha screamed in her head!
She was going to classify this as the worst workday of her life if she wasn't able to buy that thing!
But she had to listen.
Cleaning out the refrigerator was unbearable; she had to open all of the windows just to clear the air when she was done!
But when everything was spic and span she quickly ran out.
Martha came back and plopped in one of the restaurant chairs 10 minutes later and cried!
It was gone!
All that anxiety for nothing!
