Brandon's mother works in a big law office. She works on the sixth floor of a very tall office building. Brandon doesn't know much about his mother's job, but he knows she works hard.
Mrs. Long, Brandon's mother, goes to work every morning very early. She leaves for work right after Brandon gets on the bus for school. That's about 7:00 a.m. When she gets to work, she answers many phone calls. She spends a lot of time on the phone. She's always very polite on the phone. She's polite even when people make her feel upset.
Mrs. Long also attends a lot of meetings. She meets with her bosses at least two times every day. She meets with her co-workers. Sometimes she travels to meetings. Last year, Brandon's mother had to go all the way to England for a meeting. She brought Brandon some nice gifts from London.
