最近，有同学问了这样一道题“Describe a family member who you want to work with in the future”。说到这个话题，我就想起了我的妈妈！我最想与之一起工作的就是我的母亲了，事实上，在我还在上学时，我就已经跟她一起共事过啦。这里面到底发生了哪些故事，咱们一起来看看吧~
本期Part 2 话题
Describe a family member who you want to work with in the future
You should say:
Who he/she is
Whether you worked together before
What kind of work you would like to do with him/her
And explain how you feel about this family member
If I had to work with a family member in the future, it would definitely be my mother. As a matter of fact, I had worked with her before in our family restaurant.
I remember long time ago, my parents had a big restaurant in a very upscale neighborhood and it was quite busy. And sometimes, they had employees who didn’t show up to work and I had to cover for them. So after school, I would go there to help them out and also it was a good opportunity for me to learn some real-life skills. Since it was a restaurant, I sometimes waited on the customers, and was cashier from time to time. If the place got too busy, I would also have to work in the kitchen as a dishwasher or busboy.
They have had the restaurant for a long time and after I graduated from college with my accounting degree, I also helped them do their income taxes and keep their finances in order.
So in the future, if my parents decided to open another restaurant, which I don’t think they will since they are retired, I would definitely help them out again.
The reason I want to work with my mother is because she is probably the hardest working person I have ever met. Also, she is very open-minded who loves to listen to others advice.
