June 18, 2011Bob Gets The Egg Off His Face
This week, we bring you Chapter 2 in our serialized Mid-Century book, Off To Work, published in 1962. Off to Work is a basic (read: very, very basic) reader story about Bob Grant, a teenager who just graduated from high school, and his friend, Sally.
Bob is depressed. He needs to get a job, and he looks like a slob. What is he going to do? Why, he is going to leave it to his sister, Ann, who is a successful hostess in a dining room. She’s going to teach him basic hygine, how to dress himself and how to aim really, really low.
“Don’t waste your time trying to get a job you can’t possibly do,” Ann explained. She threw away the advertisement for an office manager.
