Very few people were coming to eat the White Rose Restaurant, and its owner (1) did not know what to do. The food in his restaurant was (2) cheap and good, but nobody seemed to want to eat there.
Then he did something (3) that changed all that, and in few weeks his restaurant (4) was always full of men with their lady friends. Whenever a gentleman came in with a lady, (5) a smiling waiter gave each of them a beautiful menu. The menus (6) looked exactly the same on the outside, but there was (7) an important difference inside. The menu that the waiter gave to the man gave the correct price (8) for each dish and each bottle of wine , while the menu that he gave to the lady (9) gave a much higher price! So when the man calmly ordered dish after dish and wine after wine, the lady thought (10) he was much more generous than he really was!
I live in a small village in the country. My wife and I run a village shop. We have a very peaceful life, "boring" some might say. But we love it. We know all the people in the village. They have plenty of time to stop and chat. I have plenty of time for my hobbies too—gardening, fishing, walking in the country side. I love the outdoor life. It wasn't always like this though I used to have a really stressful job, working so late in the office every evening. I often bring work home at the weekends. The advertising world is very competitive. And when I look back, I can't imagine how I stood it. I have no private life at all. No time for the really important things in life. Because of the pressure of the job, I used to smoke and drink too much. The crisis came when my wife left me. She complained that she never saw me and that I had no time for family life. This made me realize what was really important to me. I talked things through with her and decided to get back together again and started a new and better life together. I gave up tobacco and alcohol and searched for new hobbies. Now I am afraid of looking back since the past life seemed a horrible dream.
