Speaking

Who was just came to SH to be a intern. She’s just in second years. Her college is named Wulipu.

Say “thank you” and don’t throw anything on the floor. Don’t throw over the cars when you drive. I almost forget the traffic rules. I got the license in 2008. Speak very loud in public. Very selfish with others because last weekend we ask taxi which is came in to my residential complex and we met another car and there are another car behind us so we ask that car to go back. But, the person refused.

I argued with my colleague 5 years ago. He was my manager and he isn’t a good manger, he often give me some stupid task at work to do. I think that is not the right things that the boss want so the result of the things I did were not good. But, this work were from him. I think these are his responsibility but he always told to our boss that things was my fault.

Revised: 

Who was just came to SH to be an intern. She’s just in her second year. Her college is named Wulipu.

Say “thank you” and don’t throw anything/rubbish/don’t litter on the floor. Don’t overtake other cars when you drive. I almost forgot the traffic rules. I got my licence in 2008. I don’t like when people speak loudly/shout in public. I also don’t like when people are very selfish with others because last weekend we asked a taxi to come into my residential complex and we came face-to-face with another car in front and there was another car behind us so we asked that car to back out/reverse. But, the person refused.

I argued with my colleague 5 years ago. He was my manager/supervisor and he wasn’t a good manger/supervisor. He often gave me some stupid task at work to do. I think that it’s not right because that’s not what the boss wants so the result was not good. But, these tasks were from him. I think it’s his responsibility but he always told our boss that it was my fault.
