Abdul's Story

Hi. My name is Abdul. I’m from Morocco. In my country I was an accountant. When I came to the U.S., I needed a job. My friend told me about a job in a restaurant.

I went to the restaurant. The boss said, “Do you speak English?” I was scared, I said, “Yes.” I didn’t tell him that I can’t read.

I got a job as a dishwasher. The boss gave me a schedule. The schedule had: Abdul – morning shift, 6:00. I came to work at 6 o’clock in the evening.

The boss was mad! He said, “What happened?” I was confused, but I stayed calm. I said, “I’m sorry. I don’t understand. It’s 6 o’clock.” I said, “Please help me. I am a hard worker.”

The boss explained the schedule. He told me to ask questions when I don’t understand. I will work hard and I will ask questions. I will learn to read and write in English.
