<FONT size=3>These days ,people who do manual work often receive far more money than people who woke in the offices .People who woke in the offices are frequently referred to as 'white collar workers ',for the simple reason that they often wear white collar and tie to go to work .Such is the humen nature ,that a great many people are often willing to sacrifce higher pay for the privilege of becoming the  white collar workers .That can give rise to curious situations ,as it did in the case of Alfrid Bloogs who worked as a dustman for the Ellermere     Corporation .When he got married ,he was too embarssed to say anything to his wife about his job .He just simplely told his wife that he worked for the Corporation .Every morning ,he left home dressed in a fine blacksuit .He then changed into overalls and spent the next eight hours as a dustman .Before returning home ,he took a shower and changed back into his suit .He did it for over two years and his fellow dustmen kept his secret .Alf's wife has never discovered that she married a dustman and she never will ,for Alf has just found another job .He is soon working in an office as a junior clerk  .He wil just earn half as much as he used to .But he feels that his rise in status is well worth the loss of money .He will soon wears a suit all day and others will call him "Mr Bloogs "not "Alf ".</FONT>
