Help Wanted Ads
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Anne needed to find a job. She needed to make money. She really wanted to get a cell phone. She looked in the newspaper to find a job.
 
2     She bought a paper. She turned to the part with the help wanted ads. She read the first ad. A hospital was looking for a doctor. Anne shook her head. She was not a doctor. She could not do that job.
 
3     The next ad was from a school. They wanted someone to answer the phones. Anne thought she could do that job. She kept reading the ad. It said that you had to be 18. She was only 17. She could not do that job either.
 
4     The next ad was from a store. The store was looking for someone to put the items on the shelves. Anne thought about it. She could put things where they belonged. She helped her mom put stuff away all the time. So far, this job sounded good.
 
5     Anne kept reading the ad. The ad said you had to have a way to get to the store. Anne read the address for the store. It was just down the street from her house. That was good. She didn't have her driver's license yet. If she couldn't walk, she couldn't get to the job. The job still sounded like something she could do.
